Zlatan Ibrahimovic Downs Denmark Then Says: “I Just Sent Their Whole Country Into Retirement.”

Zlatan Ibrahimovic Downs Denmark Then Says: “I Just Sent Their Whole Country Into Retirement.”

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored twice against Denmark to secure Sweden’s passage into Euro 2016, before taking an awesome pot-shot at the defeated Danes.

Ibrahimovic scored both to put Sweden 2-0 ahead, and though Denmark’s Yussuf Poulsen and Jannik Vestergaard replied in the last 20 minutes, the Swedes advanced 4-3 on aggregate.

The PSG striker’s cool brace in the 2-2 draw in Copenhagen, carrying his side through to the draw on December 11, before exclaiming his greatness in the aftermath of the match.

The 34-year-old told reporters:

“They [the Danes] wanted me to retire but I just sent their whole country into retirement.”

“We were the best in the play-offs.

“This is just fabulous.”

Ibrahimovic, now has a massive 62 goals for his country, including 19 career goals in Euro qualifiers, and scored a trademark free-kick past the helpless Kasper Schmeichel.

His reference to retirement is that Zlatan is not expected to play international football beyond next summer’s Euros.

But retire their whole country?! Ouch! Even by Zlatan’s standards that is extremely harsh. Burn, Denmark. Burn
