Cristiano Ronaldo once again proved the difference between Portugal and Sweden in the second leg of their FIFA World Cup play-off.

Portugal had edged the first instalment on Friday thanks to a solitary goal from the Real Madrid CF forward, who earned them a 2-0 aggregate advantage with the opener in Solna. However, two goals from Sweden talisman Zlatan Ibrahimović gave hope to the hosts, until Ronaldo added two more of his own to complete a memorable hat-trick and secure Paulo Bento's side a place at next summer's finals in Brazil.
