Sweden vs Portugal and France vs Ukraine in World Cup 2014 playoffs October 21 draw

By Soccer Blog | Oct 21, 2013

Portugal have been drawn against Sweden in UEFA’s playoffs for next year’s World Cup in Brazil, setting up a mouth watering clash between the two nations’ respective talismanic stars- Cristiano Ronaldo and Zlatan Ibrahimovic. France coach Didier Deschamps, who was keen to avoid Portugal, has been granted his wish with a fixture against Ukraine. In other ties, Greece will take on Romania while Iceland have been pitted against Croatia, who will be going into the playoffs with a new coach.

In the eight team draw, Portugal, Greece, Croatia and Ukraine were the seeded teams, with France, Sweden, Romania and Iceland forming the unseeded group.

    I think Portugal will come good- they are at home for the first leg and unless Zlatan does something, I don’t see Sweden progressing.

    France should beat Ukraine.

    Unsure about Greece Romania, it’ll probably go to penalties!

    Iceland v Croatia hmmm… I’d love Iceland and Eidur Gudjohnsen to script an upset, but I think the Croats have too much firepower and even with the new coach, should win comfortably. Only chance for Iceland is to win at home in the first leg.
