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 and Instagram to challenge Beckham on the eve of the showdown in Samara, Russia.
Beckham responded via Instagram:
England will bid to end their 28-year wait to reach a World Cup semi-final when they face Sweden on Saturday, after Brazil were dumped out in the last eight by Belgium.
Gareth Southgate’s young side face the Scandinavians in Samara with a place in the last four against either Croatia or hosts Russia up for grabs.
