Billed as a head to head clash between the two best players (on current form) on the planet, Cristiano Ronaldo and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, this first legWorld Cup Play-Off clash between Portugal and Sweden was ultimately decided by the Madrid superstar, who headed home late on in Lisbon.

The mighty Zlatan was oddly quiet for most of the game while overall there were few real chances created in this cagey encounter. Although with just one goal separating the sides, expect Zlatan to be firing on all cylinders in the return leg in Sweden.

  1. Rob says:

    Ronaldo should have been sent off before he scored for his “headbutt” and how many dives did Nani get away with?

  2. Per says:

    Perfectly okay result for us swedes, I think. Would, of course, have liked to see an away goal, but still. Can’t have too many complaints. We’re still very much alive in this one. Can’t wait for tuesday.

  3. Shane says:

    If Nani never played for a side that I supported ever again Id be so happy. The guy is so frustrating it beggars belief

  4. George says:

    Messi would never be able to score a goal like that
