first_img Beckham posted this picture on his Instagram story Ibrahimovic and Beckham tussle with the ball back in November 2001 2 So you can expect to see proud Sweden fan Zlatan Ibrahimovic eating a fish and chips wearing an England shirt at Wembley the next time the Three Lions are at home.You would have thought that was enough punishment for the cocky striker…but it doesn’t stop there.Keen to stick the boot in, new DC United star Wayne Rooney even had a cheeky dig at his former Manchester United strike partner on Twitter! Being bold about a match prediction is always a dangerous move, especially when it is about a World Cup quarter-final.Fortunately for Zlatan Ibrahimovic, being bold is sort of engrained in his nature.The towering LA Galaxy striker was so confident the Swedes would knock England out of the World Cup, he made a bet with his former AC Milan and Paris Saint-Germain teammate David Beckham.center_img He wrote on his official page: “Yo David Beckham, if England wins I buy you dinner where ever you want in the world, but if Sweden wins, you buy me what ever I want from IKEA OK?Beckham, a proud Englishman, was more than happy to respond to Zlatan, even upping the odds on the striker.He wrote in a caption underneath the picture: “If Sweden win, I will personally take you to IKEA and buy you whatever you need for your new mansion in LA.“But when England win, I want you to come and watch an England game at Wembley wearing an England shirt eating fish and chips at half time…”Clearly confident of Sweden’s chances against Gareth Southgate’s side, Ibrahimovic agreed!England won 2-0 thanks to goals from Harry Maguire and Dele Alli, to put Gareth Southgate’s side into the semi-finals of the World Cup for the first time since 1990.And, clearly one to never forget a bet, ‘Goldenballs’ was more than happy to remind Zlatan he had lost. 2 How you feeling today mate @Ibra_official?
