Lewa vs Ibra in Poland-Sweden

Poland vs Sweden: Why this match will be historic

March 29, 2022 By Michelle Bonsu
The two aces will meet for the first time in their respective careers as each hopes to inspire his side to the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

On Tuesday, Poland and Sweden will take part in a play-off battle, with a spot at the 2022 World Cup up for grabs for the winner.

As such, the pressure will be on both the Orly and the Blågult to play a solid game. Fans could also be in for a interesting battle starring Robert Lewandowski and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who will be meeting for the first time in their respective careers.

It's interesting, especially given Ibrahmovic's nomadic career that has seen him play in four of Europe's "Big Five" leagues: Italy (Juventus, Inter, AC Milan), Spain (Barcelona), France (PSG), and England (Manchester United) that he's never played against Lewandowski either in club or at the international level.

The 40-year-old has struggled with injuries this season that has limited his appearances for Milan, but his showings when fit clearly were enough to get him a call-up to the national team.

Meanwhile, Lewandowski has been again in fine form for Bayern, and is a clear contender to successfully defend his Torjägerkanone title for an unprecedented fifth straight time.

This won't be the first time that Ibrahimovic will face a team that has a high-profile attacker. Back in November 2013, he was part of the Sweden team that faced Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal for a spot at the 2014 World Cup. 

Despite netting a brace, it wasn't enough as Ronaldo scored four goals - including a hat-trick in Sweden - to deny the Blågult a spot at the event in Brazil. 

As such, that memory will still be in Ibrahimovic's mind as he hopes to help his team feature at what likely will be his last opportunity to feature at a World Cup. Given his injury worries, it's possible he may not be able to involved in the starting XI and might have to start from the bench.

Of course, Lewandowski will be aiming for the same objective with Poland, making this feature one that fans and neutrals surely won't want to miss.
