The action could have meant a red card for Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The most recent day of the UEFA Qualifiers for the Qatar World Cup 2022 left several decisive matches such as Spain against Sweden, in which one of the two teams was looking for the direct quota that finally went to the Iberians who managed to win at home 1-0 thanks to a goal from Álvaro Morata.

Many of the lights were on Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who entered in the last minutes in search of the comeback, but failed to provide a goal but a controversial action when, in a corner kick in favor, he notably attacked one of his rivals, César Azpilicueta.

The Milan striker charged hard against the Chelsea defender by hitting him with his shoulder on his back, something that only cost him the yellow and that it could have had worse consequences if the VAR had noticed the action, but finally he only ended up being reprimanded.

The 40-year-old experienced spoke about what happened and commented that he wanted to defend one of his teammates. “I did it on purpose. He did something silly with one of my players and I did it so that he would understand that this is not done. He has no balls to do it against me, “he said in a recent interview with The Guardian.

Ibrahimovic and the entire Swedish national team hope to know the fate they will have to face in the complicated European playoff to which 12 teams are scored, of which only three will be able to qualify for the Qatar 2022 World Cup and there are world powers such as Portugal and Italy.
