Russia 2018: Sweden Can Rule The World – Zlatan
LA Galaxy striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is positive Sweden can go all the way to lift the 2018 FIFA World Cup trophy.
Sweden clash with England on Saturday in a quarterfinal fixture.
The last time the two sides met, an international friendly game, Sweden won 4-2 with Zlatan scoring all the goals for his side.
The 36-year-old believes Sweden can go all the way if they handle their feelings as the stake gets higher.
He added: "Now it's not just about how good you are. Now there are a lot of emotions in the picture because it's about quarter-finals.
"The team that can handle their feelings best will have an advantage. Yes, I think Sweden can become world champion, just like I said before the World Cup started.
"They beat Mexico, which was strong, and then they defeated Switzerland as well. So they have had success, as nobody thought they would."
England, however, beat Sweden at Euro 2012 3-2 in a group stage match but Ibrahmovic says the squad need to stay focused on the game ahead.
"Now it's about England on Saturday and we are all there with our full support behind them. All the Swedes in the world are proud of our national team and they will continue to be proud, regardless of how it goes.
"I'm Swedish and I believe in Sweden against England."
