It's all or nothing for Zlatan and Sweden

Captain and talisman Zlatan Ibrahimovic issued a rallying cry to supporters ahead of Tueday night’s FIFA World Cup play-off second leg at Friends Arena as Sweden look to overturn Portugal’s slender 1-0 advantage from the first-leg in Lisbon.

Sweden coach Erik Hamrén announced Tuesday lunchtime, an unchanged starting eleven to face the Portugese.

"We've got the measure of them now, and that's an advantage," he said. "It's the last game before the World Cup now. Get behind us and we'll make it."

The 32-year-old Ibrahimovic will be hoping for more openings than he had on Friday night when Cristiano Ronaldo’s header ten minutes from time gave Portugal a 1-0 victory, their first over Sweden on home soil.

Sweden need at least a two-goal cushion if they are to make it through to next summer’s tournament in Brazil, although a 1-0 result would lead to extra-time and maybe even penalties.

The Friends Arena is a happy hunting ground at least for Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who has scored ten goals there since it opened a year ago.
