Watch the Cristiano Ronaldo-Zlatan Ibrahimovic Cam to See Their Reactions to Playoff Goals [VIDEO]

The second leg of the World Cup playoff earlier this week between Sweden and Portugal was a brilliant spectacle to watch. The hat trick by Ronaldo has convinced many that he is now the best player in the world. But one of the less reported storylines is the class that Zlatan Ibrahimovic showed on the pitch by applauding his fellow Ballon d’Or contestant after scoring one of his goals.

Whether you missed the gesture or not, the video below features a side-by-side view of the “Zlatan Cam” next to the “Ronaldo Cam.” The videos show the reaction from both players as each of the pivotal goals went into the back of the net.

It’s certainly interesting viewing particularly how Ronaldo criticized his goalkeeper, as well as some of the goal celebrations by him which were missed on television.

  1. Ronaldo has so much confidence coursing through his veins that he believes he could have saved the two Sweden goals.
    Very interesting to see the body language of both the players when the spotlight was on the other. Ronaldo never looked defeated whereas Zlatan was.
    Great video.

  2. Loved this! I do feel bad for Ibra and will miss seeing him next summer in Brazil. He’s a remarkable talent in his own right.

  3. I enjoyed watching Zlatan applauding Ronaldo.. For all the talk of Ibra and how egotistical he can be (see his Zlatan Unplugged comments after the match) I though it was awesome to see one of the best players on the planet applauding probably the best player on the planet (at least right now).

    For me, Ibra not playing in the WC was only the second biggest downside… It was FIFA. The decision to extend ballon d’or voting and letting people change their votes just reeks of trying to rig it for CR7 (and I think he deserves the award). The most popular sport in the world should not be run by corrupt used car salesmen that change rules to stuff whenever the see fit to get the outcome they want.
