After putting the Swedes ahead in their 2-0 win over Russia, the former Benfica man, 24, joked on Twitter and Instagram: "Watch out @iamzlatanibrahimovic."
Former Juventus, AC Milan and Barcelona ace Zlatan replied: "I told you it's easy! Let's goo."
His goal helped the Swedes leapfrog Russia in their Nations League Group B game, to clinch promotion to League A next time out.
Defender Lindelof arrived at Old Trafford last season when Ibrahimovic was recovering from a knee ligament problem.

Man United's Martial is Prem's sharpest shooter, but which under-fire Chelsea star is close behind?

ANTHONY MARTIAL has emerged as the most clinical striker in the Premier League – leaving a host of big-name stars trailing in his wake.
Gareth Southgate last week hailed Harry Kane as the best goalscorer in world football and the Tottenham ace has been prolific in the domestic game for years.
Manchester City star Sergio Aguero is also regarded as one of the global game's greats while Mohamed Salah is on the shortlist to win the Ballon d'Or for his goalscoring exploits with Liverpool.

Martial has had nine attempts on goal in the top flight this season – and has hit the target every single time.
