You wouldn't have thought that the draw for the World Cup European play-offs would be interesting enough to hit the headlines, but that's exactly what has happened thanks to the involvement of two giants of the sport.

That's right, Portugal and Sweden have been drawn together which means only one thing; a titanic battle of the egos, of the hair, the looks and the talent - it's Cristiano Ronaldo v Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

One of Europe's brightest stars will lead their country to the biggest tournament in world football, while the other will bow their head in shame and face up to the fact that they weren't good enough. Not something either Ronaldo or Ibrahimovic will likely be willing to do.

But while we will have to wait until November 19 to find out which superstar will come out on top, there's no better time to whet your appetite for the big clash by checking out this classic Nike advert.

Ronnie and Ibra showed off their skills back in 2006 for the 'Joga Bonito' TV ad, and if it's anything to go by their on-pitch showdown should be a corker.

One final question remains; who are you backing to lead their country to the World Cup?
