When football legend Zlatan Ibrahimovic leaves the Swedish national football team, it's not the Volvo V90 that offers him support, but his loving family. It takes a brave automaker to put itself in second place, but Volvo did that this V90 film called "Epilogue."
The Swedish team has left Euro 2016 after losing to Italy and Belgium, plus tying 1-1 with the Republic of Ireland. The only FIFA host nation to be defeated in the Final, Sweden has never managed to rekindle its magical 1958, but fans will undoubtedly be sad to see captain Ibrahimovic go.

After 15 years with the team, he must be feeling sad after the last match in the yellow jersey. Volvo Cars’ new film captures this moment and Zlatan’s journey back to Sweden.

“Making this film was, of course, emotional, but the time has come for me to hang up my shirt and hand over to the next generation. For me, it is all about looking forward, not back. A new journey is starting – both for me and for Volvo,
” said Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

This is likely to be the end of Volvo's football-related videos, at least until another legend of Zlatan's caliber appears. Anders Gustafsson, Senior Vice President Europe says the company is very proud that they were given this opportunity to share this personal moment in Zlatan’s life and career. He is a very strong ambassador for Sweden around the world, and he has shown that you can continue to be proud of your values and your origins, the official adds.

We really are sorry to mention this last in the story, but the music is once again created by Hans Zimmer. It's an original piece, yet it reminds us of several others that have portrayed a darker mood, of introspection and loss. What a fantastic, fantastic video this has been!
