Fans of the Swedish national team are facing an anxious wait after their star man Zlatan Ibrahimovic suffered an injury tonight while playing one of his last game's for Paris-Saint-Germain.

The 34-year-old, who is out of contract with the French champions this summer, scored the 300th league goal of his career on 50 minutes in the 1-1 draw with Bordeaux but was forced off 20 minutes later after suffering a blow to the leg.

He was replaced by the exciting French teenager Jean-Kévin Augustin.

The severity of the injury is unclear but the Swedes will certainly be sweating over the availability of their best player.

Ireland face Sweden in their opening Group E game at the Stade de France on June 13.
