Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Sweden v Cristiano Ronaldo, Portugal
World Cup 2014 : Sweden v Portugal
Tomorrow's World Cup 2014 Group Stage clash between Sweden and Portugal will determine whether Cristiano Ronaldo or Zlatan Ibrahimovic will compete in the next 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil.
Sweden hosts Portugal for the final showdown between the titan national teams.
The task ahead for Sweden is to overturn Portugal's 1-0 lead after the first leg loss.
Portugal travel to Sweden for the second game of a two-legged tie to decide who plays in next summer’s World Cup 2014 in Brazil.
Both of the superstar footballers are considered top's in the world by their fans, coaches, and teammates.
'Zlatan for me is No 1 in the world,' said Sweden coach Erik Hamrent. 'He is a world-class player, he is my captain and he is playing for Sweden. I say that he is the very best.’
'They are two great players, but nothing compares to what Cristiano does,’ said Real Madrid defender Pepe. 'He has unimaginable statistics and is the best in the world. There is no comparison.’
'He is going through an exceptional moment,’ said CR7's national coach, Paulo Bento. 'He is playing the best ever. We count on him, that’s for sure.
'He should have won the Ballon d’Or more times and for his quality and his professionalism he deserves it this year.’
Ronaldo has scored 14 times in his last eight gamesy.
Ibrahimovic, though, is only a goal behind.
'Of course, it’s a fight between these two world-class players,’ added Sweden’s Hamren. 'Zlatan needs support but if he gets that from the team then he can be the match-winner.
Either Ibra or CR7 can excel in a crunch clash.
'It is the same for Portugal. Ronaldo is important for them. He is a really big star. He is the world-class player in their team but they have 10 other players.
'Zlatan has been scoring well recently, so that’s good. But so has Ronaldo, so maybe their form is pretty even.’
