thumbnail Hello,

Goal takes a look at the visual highlights of another exciting night of World Cup qualifiers and international friendly action

Cristiano Ronaldo's much-hyped clash with Zlatan Ibrahimovic saw the Portugal international come out on top with a winning goal in his side's 1-0 World Cup play-off win over Sweden.

Elsewhere, there was shock as France were defeated 2-0 in Ukraine to leave their hopes of reaching Brazil hanging by the thinnest of threads, while Greece look set to stroll to the finals at Romania's expense.
