Zlatan Ibrahimovic has hailed Sweden’s World Cup campaign, writing on Twitter that “every player should get a Golden Ball in Sweden.”
Sweden’s run ended when they were beaten 2-0 by England in the quarterfinals on Saturday, but former captain Ibrahimovic said Janne Andersson’s side had enjoyed a memorable tournament.
“Every player should get a Golden Ball in Sweden,” he wrote.”What they did will be remembered forever. Thank you for the show.”
Sweden’s defeat meant Ibrahimovic lost a bet with David Beckham, meaning he must watch an England game at Wembley with him.
Beckham had said he would buy Ibrahimovic whatever he wanted from IKEA if Sweden beat Gareth Southgate’s side.
