Brazil 2014 will be hard to imagine without Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Yesterday, Sweden crashed out of the World Cup in a Ibrahimovic-Ronaldo showdown, which saw the latter score a 29 minute hat-trick to crush his counterpart's dreams of one last chance to play at the finals in Brazil.

Aged 32, the Swedish superstar must have felt this would be his last realistic opportunity to appear among the world's best players this summer, and at one point the captain must have thought he'd succeeded, with two brilliant goals in Stockholm to put his country 2-1 up on the night.

However it was Portugal's own star player, Cristiano Ronaldo, who had the last laugh, proving how much of an asset he is to both club and country.

Ultimately one player had to pay the price yesterday and sadly it was Ibrahimovic, who, through his absence, has now labelled the World Cup: "not worth watching".

Something that is 'worth watching' however, is the video above.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic's all-time best career goals, cut into one compilation.

So sit back, relax and enjoy!
