The final spots for the FIFA World Cup were up for grabs this week with several teams playing for their chance to book a ticket to Rio in 2014.
No doubt, the most highly anticipated clash was the encounter between Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal and Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s Sweden.
The two superstars did not disappoint as they accounted for all of the six goals over both matches. However there could only be one winner…
With four goals in the two legs including an all-important hat-trick in Sweden on Tuesday, Cristiano Ronaldo is truly on fire.
Who's better then everyone Messi or Ronaldo?

However, according to Sky Sports, Zlatan believes there is no point watching either of them compete at the World Cup without himself there.

The game ended in a goalless draw but Dutch midfelder Kevin Strootman was quick to remind us of the Oranje’s current unbeaten streak which is flying under the radar.
We didn't lose in 2013, now continue that in 2014. Difficult game yesterday against a strong opponent but we fight till the end. #oranje
The match was an unfavorable one for Dutch midfielder Rafael Van Der Vaart who took to Twitter to update fans on the injury he picked up during the match.
Maybe you've heard it already, it will take 3 to 4 weeks to recover from my ankle injury. Will work as hard as I can to be back asap! #HSV
