One of the world's greatest footballers will not be at next year's World Cup after Portugal were drawn a tricky play-off tie against Sweden this afternoon. 

This means that Cristiano Ronaldo and Zlatan Ibrahimovic will go head-to-head as both men hope to gain a place in Brazil next year. 

All eyes will certainly be on the Real Madrid and PSG stars ahead of the match. 

Portugal and Sweden were two of the more high profile teams in the play-off draw and will not be overjoyed with having to face one another. 

The other standout tie of the round is Ukraine's match against France, with the other two games Greece vs Romania and Iceland vs Croatia.

The two-legged games will take place next month on November 15 and 19 and all eight international sides will be desperate to claim their place at next summer's World Cup. 

But who will make it to Brazil? Have your say below!
