Sweden vs England: Zlatan and Beckham make a friendly wager
As Sweden take on England in the quarter-final at the ongoing FIFA World Cup 2018, country's record goal-scorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic has challenged legend David Beckham to a wager. The former England captain, happily, accepted Zlatan's terms and made it even more interesting. Zlatan is currently plying his trade at Beckham's former side LA Galaxy in the USA. Here is more on the same.
Zlatan's bet with Beckham
Zlatan proposed that if England beat Sweden, then he will treat Beckham in any restaurant in the world. But if Sweden win, then Becks will have to buy him whatever he wants from IKEA Sverige. Interestingly, former Sweden international, Zlatan, has recently purchased a mansion in LA. His post went viral, moments after the former Manchester United player tweeted about the same.
Zlatan's rationale behind this bet!
The Swedish company IKEA was formed in 1943 and has recently completed 75 years. They deal in ready-to-assemble furniture. And it looks like Zlatan wants something 'big' for his new mansion. But Beckham did not disappoint him either, who accepted it in a jiffy.
