Football’s Instant Comeuppance

It’s not often that anyone gets to exact poetic justice so quickly or publicly, but Zlatan Ibrahimovic managed it in Sweden’s match against England last night. The England fans had been taunting him with the (pretty amusing) chant of “You’re just a s**t Andy Carroll”, comparing him unfavourably with Liverpool’s long-haired 35 million pound signing that flopped dramatically and is now out on loan after only a season at Anfield. Moments later Ibrahimovic did this . . . .

Not exactly Oscar Wilde or Dorothy Parker, but an equally devastating riposte!
