STOCKHOLM (AP) Striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been picked for Sweden's provisional squad for the Rio de Janeiro Olympics.

The Swedish football federation announced a 35-man squad on Wednesday, which will be trimmed to 22 for Rio where Sweden plays Nigeria, Colombia and Japan in Group B.

Sweden's under-21 boss Hakan Ericson, who manages the Olympic football team, says the chances that Ibrahimovic will be part of the final squad are ''not so great but there is still a hope.''

The 34-year-old Ibrahimovic, currently playing for Sweden in the European Championship, is one of three players over 21 allowed for the Olympic team.

Ibrahimovic left Paris Saint-Germain after scoring a career-high 38 league goals this season and is widely expected to join Manchester United.
