Zlatan Ibrahimovic Calls Himself God Ahead of World Cup Qualifier

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has always been quotable, but before he and his Sweden team step out on Friday to take on Portugal in their 2014 World Cup qualifier, he has delivered another beauty.

The forward was talking to TV4 in Sweden when asked what the result of the qualifier would be, and at first Ibra's response was suitably neutral.

That quickly changed.

Of course, context is everything, and it would appear that Zlatan was being humorous rather than serious with the reporter.

Another journalist reporting the quote adds a laugh at the end to indicate the same:

Even if Ibra was joking, it takes a certain kind of person to be able to make that joke. Tongue-in-cheek or not, you won't be hearing Johan Elmander cracking that gag before the match.

Cristiano Ronaldo? Maybe.
