EURO 2020: Ukraine win it at death to set up a quarter-final tie against England

Ukraine have advanced to the quarter-finals of the Euro 2020 following a 2-1 victory over Sweden in the extra time. 

Artem Dovbyk scored the winner in the 120th minute to send Ukraine through to the last 8 of the tournament. Marcus Danielson was sent off for a foul on Besedin in the 99th minute forcing the hosts to finish the game with 10 men. 

Ukraine got the opener in their opener in the 27th minute, through Zinchenko. Yarmolenko had the ball on the right of the pitch, delivered a superb cross and that went across to meet Zinchenko. The Man City man drilled a powerful shot past Olsen, who got a touch but could not keep the ball out. 

Two minutes to halftime, Sweden got a leveler, Forsberg's shot took a deflection off Zabarnyi and skipped off the turf and into the top corner. 

In the second half, Sweden went to sleep and almost paid the price. Yarmolenko was involved again, he cut the ball back for Sydorchuk, who unleashed a shot through a number of bodies and onto the post. 

Minutes later, Sweden responded and also struck the woodwork. Isak finally got going and shifted through the gears. He drove into the Ukraine half before drawing in a number of defenders and releasing Forsberg in on goal. Forsberg got a right-footed shot away but the ball clips the outside of the far post.

Once again, Forsberg was denied by the woodwork. He cut in off the left flank, skipped past one then two challenges before unleashing a brilliant strike towards the goal. Bushchan was rooted to the spot and could only look on as the ball smashed into the crossbar.

Red card 

Danielsson caught Besedin on the knee with his studs. He got the ball first but it is on his follow-through that he catches Besedin. There was a quick VAR check the card changed, with the referee sending Danielson off.
