Zlatan Ibrahimovic will lead Sweden out against Germany in their World Cup qualifier on Tuesday night amid accusations of being arrogant, dirty and childish. Ibrahimovic was instrumental as Sweden came from 1-0 down to win against Faroe Islands on Friday night but the opposition's captain, Frodi Benjaminsen, was not impressed by how the Paris St-German striker behaved on the pitch.

"He is just so ignorant, someone who just talks a lot and I don't like him," Benjaminsen told the Swedish newspaper Expressen. "He is so arrogant. Talks about other players, talks about himself, what he does and how he plays. He also plays dirty and that is the main reason [I don't like him]. But we didn't fight – he is not worth it."

Benjaminsen also talked to local paper Dimmalaetting after the game, describing what had happened between the pair. "He elbowed me just before the interval and when we left the pitch for half-time I asked him what he was doing," he said. "Just when we got inside he grabbed hold of me … He was belittling our team and me. What he said was not nice. He talked about where he is playing and how much he is earning. It was so childish."

Sweden have won their two opening games in World Cup qualifying Group C but face their biggest test so far against Germany, who beat the Republic of Ireland 6-1 on Friday night.
