first_imgSwedish star Zlatan Ibrahimovic has cruelly taunted Ciaran Clark after his OG in yesterday’s 1-1 draw with Sweden, in Ireland’s opening match in EURO 2016. Ibrahimovic failed to dazzle the Irish defence, which was largely down to Clark who had an excellent match. However, the Aston Villa defender unfortunately headed past Darren Randolph in the 71st minute, after the PSG star went past John O’Shea.He cruelly laughed about the OG after the match in the post-game press conference, saying it was ‘magic’ and that he made Clarke put the ball in the net.How do I make defenders score? I gave the cross and he headed it into the goal,” Ibrahimovic told reporters.“Was it magic? Maybe you should ask him.” The comments will not go down well in Milford, as Clark qualifies to play for Ireland through his grandmother who was from Milford.Ireland face Belgium on Saturday and will go in to that game in buoyant mood after yesterday’s excellent performance.   SWEDISH STAR IBRAHIMOVIC IS PUBLIC ENEMY NO.1 IN MILFORD! was last modified: June 14th, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Ciaran ClarknewssoccerSportlast_img read more
