Despite Sweden’s defeat at the hands of Portugal, Zlatan Ibrahimovich has arrived for the World Cup.
He’s there despite the fact that Sweden lost out to Portugal. Zlatan Ibrahimovich posed for snapshots taken along with the official mascot Fuleco the Armadillo. It is a riddle wrapped in an enigma whether he is there as a spectator or as a participant.
The mystery will be solved soon though. In the play-off between Sweden and Portugal, Ibrahimovich tried his best but failed to counter Ronaldo’s quick and tricky moves. The Swedish star has class and is a man who is not known to back out of a challenge.
He may yet have a lot of spunk and chutzpah left in him. His legendary reserves could see him make good of what he has in the form of potential in the future. Yet he will have to be careful lest he incurs any injuries on the field.
Whatever the case, ultimately Zlatan will be put back into circulation for better or for worse. Recently, Zlatan who is famous for being only second to Ronaldo in the world ranking of soccer players, cracked a few good ones with regard to the USA.
He insulted Team USA by saying that they were a big joke. Zlatan is 32 years old and still in his prime. He was asked which team would win. He responded by saying “The USA”. When he was asked if he was joking, he said that it was a big joke.
Watch the video below in which Zlatan Ibrahimovich called USA a joke.

Whether he was serious or non-serious in his intentions is something which was unclear. But his lack of good judgment in utterances was simply beyond belief. He could have been more careful, prudent and circumspect in connection with his opinions. While he is the best man out there aside from Ronaldo, his mind tends to misbehave at times.
Such naughty behavior is to be expected from such big celebrities who are not answerable to any higher ups. But otherwise he is a talented star and shows the opposing teams what he has got in terms of ability on the playing field.
