Soccer-Zlatan reckons World Cup is worth it after all


(Repeats fixing second para)

SAO PAULO, June 19 (Reuters) - Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is at the World Cup as a spectator despite saying the tournament would not be worth watching without him playing in it.

Ibrahimovic was in the stands for England's match against Uruguay in Sao Paulo on Thursday and for Chile's defeat of Spain in Rio de Janeiro on Wednesday.

Back in November, when Sweden failed to qualify for the finals, Ibrahimovic said: "One thing is for sure, a World Cup without me is nothing to watch." (Reporting by Gideon Long, editing by Ed Osmond)
