After missing out on the 2014 FIFA World Cup, Sweden forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic doesn't consider the tournament to be compulsory viewing - at least for him. Sweden were eliminated in the playoffs last month by Cristiano Ronaldo's Portugal, leaving 32-year-old Ibrahimovic with some time off after Paris Saint-Germain's season.
"For sure I will see some games, but it's not like I will run home and sit in front of the television," he said Friday during a telephone conference call to promote PSG's friendly against Real Madrid on January 2 in Doha, Qatar. (Also read: Thiago Silva 'sad' at Ibrahimovic's World Cup absence)
Sweden lost 3-2 at home to Portugal for a 4-2 aggregate defeat. Ibrahimovic said it would be a "struggle to watch games" during the tournament in Brazil.
