Lindelof calls out Ibra after second Sweden strike

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 1,153

The defender issued a warning in jest to his former Manchester United teammate, claiming that he was going to break his compatriot's scoring record for Sweden.

In a joke aimed at Sweden's all time top scorer, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, current player Victor Lindelof issued a warning that the record may be under threat. 

Named Sweden's Player of the Year at an awards ceremony last week, Lindelof continued his fine international form, by heading home his second goal for his country against Russia in Stockholm. 

After the match, which the hosts would win by 2 goals to nil, Lindelof posted a jokey message to his former clubmate, which simply read: 'watch out'. 

Ibrahimovic, who retired from international duty in 2016 and now plys his trade with MLS side La Galaxy replied: ''I told you it's easy! Lets goo'.

The victory saw Sweden promoted to the top tier of the Nations League; as they advanced through on the basis of their head to head record with opponents Russia, after the sides finished the group on seven points.

When the competition resumes in the new year, the Swedes will be in League A, and will have an extra chance to qualify for Euro 2020 via the play-offs, if they happen to need it.

Sadly for the Victor Lindelof he will be hoping  that club football never resumes, as his international form lives in stark contrast to his domestic form, as he is struggling to feature for an underperforming Jose Mourinho side.

For the time being he will just have to focus on the positives, as he looks to play his way back into the starting XI for the Old Trafford club.
