The Sweden Hate Has Begun Ahead Of Today's World Cup Match

The Sweden Hate Has Begun Ahead Of Today's World Cup Match

England will face off against Sweden at 3pm today and the nation is nervous and optimistic.

As well as all that excitement, there's the inevitable banter aimed at the Swedes emerging on social media.

The nervous energy in the country's led to Brits turning against all thing Swedish - even IKEA's meatballs, which let's be honest, we never thought would happen.

Also in the firing line are Rekorderlig ciders, Ulrika Johnson, and ABBA.

One person took to Twitter to blame Sweden for the loss of all their free time, saying, "I fucking hate Sweden, the amount of weekends I've spent assembling flat pack furniture from IKEA is unreal and there is always that one screw left over! Fuck you Sweden and you're two-bob wanky furniture." Don't hold back, pal.

Another one said, also about IKEA, "As a pre-game #SWENG offering to the football god, it is now time to ceremoniously burn all my IKEA furniture and throw away any meatballs left in the freezer".

A third matched up today's game with another big date in the UK's calendar this weekend - London Pride; pointing out: "With London Pride clashing with the England/Sweden match, I don't think the country's ever been more in limbo about whether it's appropriate to blast ABBA or not."

Someone else joked: "If Sweden beat England in the world cup, IKEA, Abba & Rekorderlig can all do one"

If England make it through this round, it'll be the furthest they've got in a World Cup since 1990. No pressure then, eh?
