After sitting out 2011, Ibrahim played five games for Minnesota in 2012. After the season, he played Ethiopia at the CECAFA Cup in Uganda.

Subotic played in the 2005 U-17 World Cup but later decided to represent Serbia at the senior level. The Borussia Dortmund central defender played for Serbia at the 2010 World Cup and is one of the German Bundesliga's top players at his position.
