Fans have all been saying the same thing after spotting Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s reaction to Argentina winning the 2022 World Cup on Sunday.
The legendary Swedish striker was in the stands as he watched Lionel Messi inspire Argentina to a stunning victory over France in what was a truly spectacular final.
Argentina raced to a 2-0 half-time lead thanks to goals from Messi and Angel di Maria.
However, France fought back valiantly in the last 10 minutes as two Kylian Mbappe goals in the space of 90 seconds drew the defending champions level.
Messi bundled his side back ahead in the 108th minute but was again denied by Mbappe who converted a penalty with two minutes left. The teams couldn’t be separated after 120 minutes of breathtaking football and a penalty shootout followed.
Two costly misses from Kingsley Coman and Aurélien Tchouaméni meant that Argentina were crowned champions.
As Messi and his teammates celebrated, the camera captured Ibrahimovic in the stands next to his wife Helena Seger.
The 41-year-old had a cold stoney look on his face as he looked rather unimpressed by the fact that his former Barcelona teammate had finally won the elusive World Cup trophy.
It looked like the Swede was cheering for France as he was sat alongside Paul Pogba and French president Emmanuel Macron. Ibrahimovic was also pictured with Paris Saint Germain owner Nasser Al-Khelaifi earlier on.
Fans were quick to jump on social media to react to Ibrahimovic’s reaction.
One said: “Zlatan wanted France to win.”
Another tweeted: “Zlatan Ibrahimovic doesn’t look happy.”
A third fan added: “Zlatan Ibrahimovic looking so lost. Perhaps he was hoping to milk France winning the trophy.”
Someone else wrote: “Zlatan look like he had money on France.”
Despite his reaction, Ibrahimovic did say prior to the final that it was written in the stars for Messi to lift the trophy.
He said: “I think it's already written who will win, and you know who I mean. I think Messi will lift the trophy, it's already written.”
