Ibrahimovic put his international career on hold at the end of 2009 after Sweden failed to qualify for the World Cup finals.

The Barcelona striker announced last month that he would be returning to the national fold and he has been included in Sweden coach Erik Hamren's 20-man squad to take on Scotland in Stockholm on 11th August.

"It's really satisfying to see Zlatan coming back and looking motivated," said Hamren.

The friendly is Sweden's final warm-up game before they start their Euro 2012 qualifying campaign against Hungray on 3rd September.

Sweden squad:

Andreas Isaksson, Johan Wiland, Andreas Granqvist, Mikael Lustig, Daniel Majstorovic, Olof Mellberg, Behrang Safari, Oskar Wendt,Kim Kallstrom, Emir Bajrami, Marcus Berg, Tobias Hysen, Anders Svensson, Ola Tovoinen, Pontus Wernbloom, Christian Wilhelmsson, Sebastian Larsson, Martin Olsson , Johan Elmander, Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
