LONDON -- Cristiano Ronaldo upstaged Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the battle of the superstar forwards to give Portugal the edge over Sweden in the World Cup playoffs, while Frances chances of qualifying took a big hit by losing 2-0 in Ukraine. Nike Air Max 90 Para Hombre . Ronaldo transferred his prolific scoring form for Real Madrid to the international stage, diving to head home an 82nd-minute winner and give Portugal a 1-0 cushion to take to Stockholm for Tuesdays second leg. France faces missing a major tournament for the first time since 1994 after Roman Zozulya and Andriy Yarmolenko scored second-half goals for Ukraine in a feisty match that saw both teams finish with 10 men. Kostas Mitroglous double helped Greece claim a 3-1 win over Romania and tiny Iceland overcame a sending-off early in the second half to hold on for a 0-0 draw with Croatia, keeping alive its hopes of becoming the least populous nation to reach a World Cup. All four return matches take place on Tuesday, when the 13 qualifiers from Europe will be finalized. Italy drew 1-1 with Germany and an experimental England side slumped to a 2-0 home loss to Chile in headline friendly matches as the countdown to next years World Cup begins in earnest. One of the worlds top forwards will be absent in Brazil next summer -- and it looks more likely to be Ibrahimovic, not Ronaldo. The heavily billed showdown between two of the biggest stars -- and egos -- in football looked like falling flat in Lisbon, only for Ronaldo to take centre stage like he so often does for Madrid. He dived to glance in a left-wing cross for his 44th goal in 108 international appearances, and almost added another when he headed against the crossbar late on. Ibrahimovic was largely anonymous in Lisbon and, at the age of 32, could be set to miss out on what would likely be his final World Cup campaign. Another star of the world game, Bayern Munich winger Franck Ribery, may also be absent in Brazil after France tumbled to defeat in Kyiv on a night that proved to be one to forget for Laurent Koscielny. The Arsenal defender conceded the penalty that Yarmolenko converted for 2-0 in the 83rd minute, and was then sent off in stoppage time. Zozulya opened the scoring in the 61st for Ukraine, who had Oleksandr Kucher dismissed soon after Koscielny had been shown the red card. Iceland, with a population of around 320,000, is seeking a place in a major tournament for the first time but the biggest football match in the Nordic countrys history turned sour when Olafur Skulason was sent off for a professional foul in the 51st. However, goalkeeper Hannes Halldorsson and his packed defence stood firm to repel wave after wave of Croatia attacks in the second half. The 10,000 Iceland fans in the Laugardalsvollur national stadium greeted the final whistle as if their team had won. Romania appears likely to miss out on World Cup qualification for the fourth straight campaign after conceding twice in the opening 20 minutes before Mitroglou scored Greeces third in the 66th to give the 2004 European champions a strong advantage to take to Bucharest. Bogdan Stancu had equalized in the 19th for Romania, which had substitute Costin Lazar sent off for a second yellow card in stoppage time. Italy maintained its proud record of not having lost to Germany since 1995 -- but needed a 28th-minute equalizer by Ignazio Abate to preserve that run. Germany took the lead in the eighth minute through Mats Hummels and twice hit the goal frame in Milan. In another match between two World Cup qualifiers, Chile ended Englands 10-game unbeaten run thanks to Alexis Sanchezs double at Wembley Stadium. The Barcelona forward scored in the seventh minute and again in second-half injury time to deliver a reality check for England, which gave three players debuts. Nike Blazer Low Baratas .

Nike Free Flyknit Chukka Precio .Didier Drogba has been Chelseas only fit striker in its last two games with Loic Remy also out with a groin injury, and Mourinho says it is difficult when you only have one striker available but when you have two, the situation improves. http://www.rosherunespana.es/nike-free/nike-free-run-2.html . 26. That number would belong to Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Cary Williams. Williams and the Eagles secondary have been the subject of criticism all season for giving up long pass plays and touchdowns regularly. DETROIT -- The Cleveland Indians are rolling out of the All-Star break, cutting into Detroits previously comfortable lead in the AL Central. Carlos Santana hit a tiebreaking, bases-clearing double with two outs in the ninth inning, lifting the Cleveland Indians to a 5-2 win over the Detroit Tigers on Saturday night that sealed a sweep of the doubleheader. The Indians have won four straight, three in a row at Detroit, to pull within 4 1/2 games of the AL Central-leading Tigers. "Its all about making the push, little by little," Chris Dickerson said after hitting a pair of solo homers off Max Scherzer. Cleveland won the first game 6-2 thanks in large part to Corey Klubers strong outing. Dickerson sent two of Scherzers pitches -- in the third and sixth innings -- over walls to give Cleveland a 2-1 lead in the second game of the day-night doubleheader. The reigning AL Cy Young Award winner said Dickerson became the first player in his career to hit one of his curveballs over a fence in the major leagues. "Hes a good enough hitter that hes going to capitalize," Scherzer said. Cleveland acquired Dickerson earlier this month in a trade with the Pittsburgh Pirates for a player to be named or cash to add depth while Michael Bourn is out with a strained left hamstring. The 32-year-old journeyman entered the game hitless in nine at-bats against Scherzer. "Just coming out here and getting the chance to play every day, its a confidence booster," Dickerson said. The Tigers tied it in the seventh when Austin Jackson hit a two-out triple to score Eugenio Suarez from first after he beat a throw on a potential double play to extend the inning. The Indians loaded the bases in the ninth against Joe Nathan (4-3) with Roberto Perezs leadoff double, Jason Kipnis walk and Michael Brantleys free pass and Santana took advantage, sending a pitch off the right-centre wall after it popped out of Jacksons glove to turn a 3-all game into a 6-3 lead. "I rushed my glove up to try and make the catch," Jackson recalled. "I missed it, and hit the wall." Carlos Carrasco (3-3) pitched a perfect eighth and Cody Allen closed the game for his 13th save in 14 chances, but Indians manager Terry Francona was not in the mood to celebrate. ";Weve got to show up in about 10 hours," he said late Saturday night. Nike Free Flyknit Chukka Baratas. Scherzer gave up six hits, a season-high matching four walks and two runs -- both to Clevelands No. 9 hitter -- over 5 2-3 innings that included a season-high 118 pitches. He pitched with neck spasms. "Theres no excuses on ailments," Scherzer said, adding hes not concerned the problem will linger. Detroits Ian Krol and Joba Chamberlain combined to pitch 2 2-3 innings of scoreless relief before Nathan gave up two hits, two walks -- one intentional -- and struck out two in the pivotal ninth. Zach McAllister, the 26th man on the roster for the doubleheader, allowed only one run on three hits and three walks while striking out six over 5 1-13 innings. John Axford inherited Miguel Cabrera on second base and allowed him to get to third on a wild pitch, then stranded him by striking out J.D. Martinez and Torii Hunter to end the inning. Scott Atchison likely would have gotten out of the seventh inning without giving up a run if Kipnis did not appear to bobble the ball on a potential double play at second base that allowed Suarez to reach and later score on Jacksons triple. The Indians could lean on their bullpen in the nightcap because Kluber pitched so well in the first game. He came within an out of a complete game, striking out 10 to lift the Indians to a 6-2 win in the opener. Kluber allowed seven hits -- three by Miguel Cabrera -- and equaled his career high of 114 pitches. Bryan Shaw finally relieved him, but with another game still to come, Cleveland didnt have to use anyone else out of its bullpen. "That was the only guy we warmed up," Francona said. "That really helps." Kluber (10-6) has thrown one complete game in his career, on April 24 against Kansas City. Drew VerHagen (0-1) allowed three runs and five hits, lasting five innings in his major league debut.
