Ibrahimovic said last month he wanted to concentrate on settling into his career in Major League Soccer before thinking about the World Cup.
Ibrahimovic, who last played at a World Cup with Sweden in 2006, retired from global football after the 2016 European Championship. "People told me, 'When you get to Los Angeles, don't worry".
Then, in his first game with the team, he backed up his boast with two enthralling goals that helped the Galaxy complete a comeback after starting the game down 3-0, defeating cross-town rival LAFC by a final score of 4-3. Kimmel then pried a bit further - "Will there be cleats on the bottoms of your shoes?" But the most telling moment of the interview came when Kimmel pushed Ibrahimović on his status for the World Cup.

Justice Sonia Maria Sotomayor asked. "Where services are concerned, I recommend that the states leave well enough alone", he said. South Dakota passed a law that requires businesses to collect state sales taxes for orders shipped to the state.
And when pressed whether he would attend as player or in another form, he said: "I just said I'm going to the World Cup". "They will?" Kimmel asked.
Ibrahimovic also gave a humorous response to how soccer play could be elevated in the United States.
The 36-year-old has been reportedly weighing the option playing for the European team after they beat Italy in a play-off to make it to the first World Cup since 12 years.
Speaking later, he added: "I mean, a World Cup without me wouldn't be a World Cup".
