The 33-year-old striker came off at half-time in Saturday’s 0-1 defeat to Russia in Moscow complaining of an apparent abdominal injury.

“Let’s hope it goes quickly but it remains to be seen if he will be able to play,” Hamren said when asked about how long Ibrahimovic may be out.

“It depends how quickly he can recover. He has a haemorrhage to the internal oblique muscle of the abdomen,” he added at a press conference.
