Watch English World Cup Fans Demolish an IKEA After Beating Sweden
You probably heard about Japan's near-saintly sportsmanship during the World Cup. After losing to Belgium, the team cleaned the locker room and left a thank you note, and its fans even tidied up the stadium after matches. The world was duly impressed. English fan's are taking a slightly different approach.
After a 2-0 victory over Sweden, English soccer fans, overwhelmed with the thrill of the fight, invaded an IKEA. And you can see the results: adults jumping on a bed, a shirtless man, lots chanting, and very confused employees.
It's all in terrible taste but maybe a little endearing?
IKEA was also weirdly chill about the loss and the barbarism. At first, the furniture store tweeted a punny tribute to England's victory.
Then when it got word of the fans' antics, it tweeted out another message, which strangely was not please stop jumping on the bed, go home.
We are aware of a small group of fans celebrating the match result in one of our stores. Being both British and Swedish, we were on the edge of our seats during the game and we would like to say ‘grattis!’— IKEA UK (@IKEAUK) July 7, 2018
IKEA deserves some sort of World Cup citation for this at least.
