Wales star Kieffer Moore has been taking inspiration from iconic striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic ahead of the World Cup.
And the Bournemouth striker has declared he ‘can’t wait to knock out’ Group B rivals England as Qatar 2022 gets under way.
Moore has played one match for England C – the nation’s non-league team – but switched allegiance to Wales in 2019.
He has since become a popular figure among Dragons supporters and played a starring role at Euro 2020.
When asked about Wales’ clash with England on November 29, Moore said: “I can’t wait to knock them out, it would be amazing.
“There will be no mixed loyalties. I can’t remember much (about being capped by England C). It was Estonia maybe and I think I came on towards the end of the game.”
Standing at 6ft 5ins, Moore’s physicality has caused problems for Premier League defences this season.
And the 30-year-old admits he studies Sweden icon Ibrahimovic, who is famed for his physical attributes.

On his style, Moore said: “In general people don’t like it.
“Along with the physical side not many people you come up against like that side of the game. It is a bit of rarity now and something you can pull on.
“You can dominate the person you are up against in a physical and aggressive way. I like to lean against stuff where I think I can have an advantage.
“One player that springs to mind (like that) is Zlatan. You can see his physical prowess, the way he holds himself, his character and the way he plays football.
“I have watched countless videos of virtually every striker worth watching. I like to analyse a lot of other people to see if that can help me and I feel I have learned a whole lot of stuff from those videos.”
