Cristiano Ronaldo, Robert Lewandowski and Zlatan Ibrahimovic – with the superstars, the great trembling goes over in front of the playoff end 1.
Cristiano Ronaldo flies out, the president of Nordmasedonia is certainly safe. “Will you be ready, you are the next turn,” Top Politics Twee Pendarovski tweeted in the direction of the Superstar from Portugal before the game against the Italy. Northern Nordmasedonia dreams about the victory against the European champion from the nearest major coup – and absolutely wants to the World Cup to Qatar.
Before the final games of the playoffs in the qualification on Tuesday, the big trembling is not only at Ronaldo. At the same time as Portugal against Nordmasedonia, Poland still meets Sweden (both 20.45 clock Mesz / Dazn), that is, Ronaldo, Robert Lewandowski and Zlatan Ibrahimovic – at least one of the trio of superstars is only viewers at the desert World Cup.
Lewandowski is available Poland
“At the moment the football is different. Everyone can beat every1. Names, numbers and statistics are not playing a role,” said Portugal Joao Moutinho before the game against the two-million-inhabitant country, which is only in the world ranking ranked 67. Although Portugal should be warned by the debacle of Italians, but of course the favorite role is clearly distributed.
“We know exactly that we must be in Qatar,” said Bernardo Silva of Manchester City. Everything else would be a blam – after all, Portugal has missed a World Cup since 1998, while Nordmacedonia was finally qualifying for a large tournament (Euro 2020) for the first time.
Meanwhile, in front of the decisive duel with Sweden, the Poles could breathe – Lewandowski has overcome his knee problems in good time.

Ibrahimovic is also ready, in the semi-final against the Czech Republic lacked the old master blocked.
“A World Cup without Zlatan is not a World Cup”
“A World Cup without Zlatan is not a World Cup,” the eccentric had said four years ago when he did not belong to the World Cup squad of Sweden. Now, with 40, Ibrahimovic wants to know again. “I play until someone who comes better than me. That’s why I still play,” said the man with the oversized ego.
The Poles know who they get involved with. “We have taken Sweden just under the microscope,” said coach Czeslaw Michniewicz: “You are a very good, excellent organized team, there is no doubt. But we have our plan for this game.”
The plan of Nordmasedonia should be clear: give everything, pure everything and turn off somehow Ronaldo. “We have 90 minutes to fulfill our childhood dream, not only ours, but those of the whole country,” said midfielder Elif Elmas: “We may not miss this opportunity. We must not burn on the field to come to Qatar. ” And Ezgjan Alioski said, “We do not want to mess Ronaldos career, but we believe we can win against Portugal.”
