The battle between Zlatan Ibrahimovic against Cristiano Ronaldo was finally on shown last Tuesday when Sweden play host to Portugal in their World Cup playoffs second leg battle. Only being separated by a single goal from their first meeting, both sides looked really cautious during the first 45 minutes which ended in a rather disappointing goalless draw.
After the break, it was Portugoal that got things going when Ronaldo scored again against their Scandinavian rival on 50 minutes. However, that lead only lasted until 68 minutes as Sweden got back on level terms thanks to a close range header from Ibrahimovic. The PSG striker showcasing his quality again when he netted his second on 72 minutes, giving his nation another lifeline.
That hope was trashed away pretty soon though as Ronaldo strike again on 77 minutes, grabbing his brace and made it 2-2. The Real Madrid attacker was not done yet as two minutes later, he completed his hat-trick and basically sealed his country's passage to Brazil 2014.
