Zlatan Ibrahimovic has challenged David Beckham to a friendly bet ahead of Saturday’s quarter-finals tie between England and Sweden at the ongoing FIFA World Cup 2018.
Former Sweden striker Ibrahimovic, who recently purchased a mansion in Los Angeles, has made this stunning challenge, which was then accepted by Beckham.
Zlatan’s tweet went viral just moments after the former Manchester United player tweeted about the same.
Zlatan stated that If England beat Sweden, then he will treat Beckham in any restaurant in the world. But if Sweden win, then the world class player has to buy him whatever he wants from IKEA Sverige.

The Swedish company was formed in 1943, and has recently completed 75 years. They deal in ready-to-assemble furniture. No wonder Zlatan wants something for his new mansion.
But Beckham did not disappoint him either. Zlatan plays for Beckham’s side Los Angeles Galaxy in Major League Soccer, and he replied via Instagram to Zlatan’s bet.
And the reply is hilarious, and it remains to be seen whether the two legends stick to their claims and actually do the same for the winner.
