The 34-year-old scored both of Sweden’s goals in a 2-2 playoff second-leg draw in Copenhagen — a result that gave the team a 4-3 aggregate win.
The striker has hinted he could quit international football after Euro 2016, BBC wrote.
“They said they were going to send me to retirement,” he said. “I sent their whole nation into retirement.”
Paris St.-Germain player Ibrahimovic — who also recently claimed to have put both Sweden and France “on the world map” — has now scored 62 goals in 111 appearances for his country.
His goals on Tuesday — a scuffed finish from a corner followed by a curling 25-yard free kick — ensured that even two late goals from the 1992 European champion were not enough to deny the Swedes a place at the France finals.
“If I have to finish with a Euro, then that’s destiny,” added Ibrahimovic. “Thanks for all the support and see you in France. There’s still a few months [before it begins] but we'll be there.”
The playoff defeat also signaled the end of Morten Olsen’s 15-year reign as Denmark coach.
