Zlatan Ibrahimovic names 2 players to watch in Russian Federation

And LA Galaxy striker Ibrahimovic reckons the pair are the two to watch this summer as the world eagerly anticipates another cracker of a tournament.

"It was clear that I was not going to be in the national team playing, but like I said four years ago and I say it again now: the FIFA World Cup without me is not worth watching", He told FIFA in an interview.

After dominating elite level football for years, Ibrahimovic has mulled over who he believes could set the tournament alight and make a name for themselves in Russian Federation.

The veteran forward didn't stop there.

Brazil, Spain and Germany are among the tournament favourites to lift the World Cup in Russian Federation with Argentina and France also in the reckoning.

'Mbappe, an upcoming star who still has more to give to get to the top, but he will for sure arrive there.

'There are so many players who are exciting at the moment that for sure some other star that nobody has been talking about will dominate'.

But his quality is undeniable, whilst Mbappe has gone from strength to strength since his mega-money move to Paris St-Germain.

With that type of money, it's no wonder Zlatan has told spectators to pay close attention to the talented France global in Russian Federation.

In Group F, Sweden open their World Cup against South Korea in Nizhny Novgorod on June 18, before facing reigning World champions Germany and Mexico. Let us know your thoughts in the comments section. Getting into the knockout stages of the World Cup will be no easy feat for the Scandinavians.
