It was billed as the battle between Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Cristiano Ronaldo, and thus it proved as Sweden and Portugal put on a show Tuesday.
First, Ronaldo put Portugal up 1-0 on the night—2-0 on aggregate.
Then Ibrahimovic gave the Swedes hope with a brace himself to set the game up. However, Ronaldo would not be denied. First came this finish.
And then this to complete his hat-trick.
The World Cup just wouldn't have been the same without him.
