Sweden Ukraine

A header in the stoppage time of the second period of extra time by Artem Dovbyk helped Ukraine to a 2-1 victory over Sweden. Ukraine will now face England in the quarterfinals after they got the better of Germany in the Round of 16 at Euro 2020. Oleksandr Zinchenko put Ukraine in the lead in the 27th minute after he rifled home from an Andriy Yarmalenko cross. Emil Forsberg equalised for the swedes just before halftime when his shot took a wicked deflection.

Both sides hit the post a total of three times during regulation time. The turning point in the tie was when Marcus Danielson was shown a straight red after the referee was asked to check the pitchside monitor by var. A lacklustre extra-time period meant that the match would be decided in a penalty shootout. Zinchenko though put in a brilliant cross in extra time which was headed home by Dovbyk.
