PARIS, June 15 (Reuters) - Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been included in Sweden's provisional soccer squad to take part at the Rio Olympics later this summer. Ibrahimovic was named in the 35-man squad by coach Hakan Eriksson at a media conference on Wednesday.

The Rio de Janeiro Olympics run from Aug. 5-22 with the men's national football teams made up of mostly under-23 players, with an allowance for some older players.

Ibrahimovic, aged 34, is currently captaining Sweden's team in the European Championships in France.
