Janne Andersson dismissed talk of a possible international return for retired striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic after Sweden qualified for the 2018 World Cup.

Ibrahimovic announced his retirement from international play following the European Championship in France.

"This is incredible!" said Andersson. "This player [Ibrahimovic] has just stopped to play with Sweden one year and a half ago and we are still here talking about him.

"Gosh, we need to talk about the great players we have in this team I believe."

Turning his attention back to Monday's match, Andersson added: "What I wanted to say was that this was the demonstration that our collective acted like this during the whole length of the playoffs.

"We have many heroes tonight. I am a bit moved but obviously very happy with the result.

"When Ibrahimovic was here with us we played a different style of football.

"But considering that he has decided to leave international football, he is a great champion but we had to adapt and found another style."
