Cape Town - Zlatan Ibrahimovic has confirmed he will honour his bet made with former Paris Saint-Germain team-mate David Beckham after England defeated Sweden in their Soccer World Cup quarter-final.

The former team-mates agreed on the terms of a friendly wager ahead of the England v Sweden World Cup quarter-final on Saturday.
