Luckily for Sweden there are other stars that are delivering goals in Europe with Marcus Berg and Branimir Hrgota both in form.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic injured the oblique abdominal muscle during last Saturday's league match against Bastia. It is not yet clear how long the 32-year-old will be injured for although his contribution for Sweden is in doubt. 

But if the PSG star is not available, the Sweden coach, Erik Hamrén, has still got options.

On Thursday there was a Swedish goal fest in the Europa League playoff: Marcus Berg, 28, scored a hattrick in the space of 24 minutes in the first half as Panathinaikos beat Mitdjylland 4-1.

Wonderkid Branimir Hrgota gave Borussia Monchengladbach the lead and then he scored in the decisive 3-2 meeting with Sarajevo. Last Saturday scored twice to see his team advance to the second round of the German Cup.

So while there will be significant disappointment to see Ibrahimovic miss out, his absence could allow others to really prove their worth for Sweden.
