Forsberg set up Saturday's quarter-final against the Three Lions by scoring the only goal, thanks to a deflection, against Switzerland. After the last-16 win in St Petersburg, the Leipzig striker happily answered questions – until he was asked why Sweden are more successful without the larger-than-life Ibrahimovic, who retired from international duty in 2016.
