Here at Footyette headquarters, there was a combination of both laughter and despair when we read the tweet of the week.
It comes courtesy of @FootballFanCast, who made an observation about the World Cup playoff game involving Portugal and Sweden.
The first leg of the game was played on Friday night, with Portugal and their talisman Cristiano Ronaldo getting the only goal to give the home side an edge going into the second leg.
More to the point, the playoff game obviously means that one of Zlatan Ibrahimovich or Ronaldo will be missing out on the World Cup in Brazil.
Clearly a travesty by anyone’s standard. Both players are right at the peak of their careers right now, and should be playing on the greatest stage of all.
It is made even worse by the fact, duly pointed out by Football Fancast, that Donkey, sorry Danny Welbeck will be on display this summer.
Whilst we leave you with that sobering thought, here is the tweet in full.
‘Feel like crying when I realise the World Cup will miss out on either Ronaldo and Ibrahimovich,
but quite probably showcase Danny Welbeck’
Do you share the dismay? Let us know your thoughts below or tweet us @LaFootyettes.

Ibra was crap on Friday anyway.

Ibra’s comment of not bothering to watch the World Cup as he isn’t in it was vintage.
