“The song is like I play, it has pulse and tempo,” Ibrahimovic said in a video clip on the Swedish Football Association’s website.

The hiphop-style song titled Mitt Team, which translates as My Team, was composed by Frej Larsson and Joy M’Batha.

It gives “a lot of adrenaline and energy.. you want to give 200 per cent for your team,” Ibrahimovic said.

An accompanying video features images of locations and people from all over Sweden, including the odd celebrity.

Stockholm daily Aftonbladet reported Friday that Ibrahimovic was not too pleased with an initial version of the song.

The new version hit the right buttons and will be sung “wherever our fans are,” the 34-year-old forward said.

Sweden plays Ireland, Italy and Belgium in the group stage at the European championships next month.
