Victor Lindelof teases Zlatan Ibrahimovic after scoring goal for Sweden

Mover over, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Sweden has a new soccer star.

After winning Sweden's Player of the Year award for 10 consecutive years, Ibrahimovic was pushed aside last week by Victor Lindelof, who won the individual award after a stellar World Cup and cementing himself in the heart of Manchester United's defence.

On Tuesday, Lindelof took even more of the spotlight, scoring in Sweden's 2-0 Nations League win over Russia.

And the 24-year-old couldn't help but poke fun at his countryman.


How Victor Lindelof became Man United's first choice centre-back and Sweden's best

MANCHESTER -- Before breaking into the Vasteras team as a teenager, Victor Lindelof had his head shaved. It was the idea of Robin Blomme -- the injured right-back Lindelof was set to replace -- because he thought it would make the 16-year-old look tougher.

Blomme did the honours in the dressing room after training one day. No one was sure whether Lindelof was ready for senior football in Sweden's Division One North (the third tier of the league pyramid) but at least he would look the part.


Why Andreas Granqvist is more popular than Zlatan Ibrahimovic in Sweden and could join Man United

Jose Mourinho once had Zlatan Ibrahimovic to help him out at Manchester United. Nowadays, his attention has reportedly switched to another Swedish veteran, Andreas Granqvist, who is rumoured to be a target ahead of the January transfer window.

"I am not closing any doors, and flattered to even be linked with such a big team," the 33-year-old defender told Expressen from Helsingborg where he plays in the second division.

Second division? Yes, you have read that right. Back in January, Granqvist...

Zlatan Ibrahimovic on his 2012 Sweden wonder-goal: I give England a gift for life

Zlatan Ibrahimovic says he has a clear favourite among the nearly 500 goals in his career -- his spectacular overhead volley from distance against England in 2012.

The striker scored four goals in the game, including three in the final 12 minutes, to help Sweden win the friendly, but it will be the last strike that will be remembered long after his career is over.

Ibrahimovic got under a poor headed clearance from Joe Hart, and without letting the ball hit the ground, flicked the ball over his head...

England fans don't let wedding season stop them from following England-Sweden match

Three Lion supporters Nadine and Lee Hanlon were not going to miss England-Sweden even on their wedding day.
Nadine and Lee Hanlon were not going to miss England-Sweden despite it being their wedding day.

With the summer comes warm weather, and with warm weather comes wedding season. Everyone getting married wants good photos, and a sunny day is usually the desired backdrop -- even if it forces men to sweat it out in their suits and tuxedos and women to heat up in their gowns!

When planning a wedding, Saturday, July 7, seemed like a decent date to get hitched in England. One problem: the World Cup quarterfinals.

Considering England's recent woes, maybe these couples figured incorrectly that England...


Zlatan Ibrahimovic loses England-Sweden bet to David Beckham

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is headed to Wembley to watch England play in the near future and will be sporting a Three Lions shirt while downing fish and chips after losing a bet to former teammate David Beckham.

Ibrahimovic and Beckham -- teammates at four clubs during their playing days -- made a wager on the World Cup quarterfinal between England and Sweden on Saturday. England won 2-0, and now Ibrahimovic will have to live up to his end of the bargain.

Ibrahimovic's side of the bet would have had Beckham...
