Ibrahimovic, Beckham make friendly bet as Sweden, England battle for World Cup glory
Zlatan Ibrahimovic and David Beckham have agreed on the terms of a friendly wager ahead of the England v Sweden World Cup quarter-final on Saturday.
Ibrahimovic, Sweden’s all-time top scorer with 62 goals, has been vocal in support of his homeland from his vantage point with his Major League Soccer club Los Angeles Galaxy — former England captain Beckham’s onetime MLS club.
Ibrahim took to Twitter to challenge Beckham on the eve of the showdown in Samara, Russia.
“Yo @davidbeckham if @england wins I buy you dinner where ever you want in the world, but if @swemnt wins you buy me what ever I want from @ikeasverige ok?” Ibrahimovic wrote.
Beckham responded via Instagram: “@iamzlatanibrahimovic if @swemnt win I will personally take you to @ikeasverige and buy you what ever you need for the new mansion in LA @lagalaxy, but when @england win I want you to come watch an @england game at Wembley wearing an England shirt and enjoy fish & chips at half time …”Punch
