England to face Ukraine in the Euro 2020 quarter-finals
Swede 1-2 Oekraïne: Last-minute winner in extra time sets up meeting with Three Lions in Rome

England will play Ukraine in the quarter-finals of Euro 2020, after they beat Sweden in the last 16 on Tuesday night.

Manchester City’s Oleksandr Zinchenko fired Ukraine ahead midway through the first half after a cross from the right found him on the far side of the penalty area, but Emil Forsberg replied with a fierce, deflected effort just before half-time.

It was his fourth of the tournament and he twice almost netted his fifth in the second halfwhich would have taken level with Cristiano Ronaldo as the top scoreronly to be denied by the woodwork both times.

With no further goals the match went to extra time, with the first major incident seeing Sweden centre-back Marcus Danielson sent-off for a high challenge which left Artem Besedin injured.

Both teams were reluctant to go all-out for the win and a penalty shootout looked inevitable, but substitute Artem Dovbyk found space to score the winner in the 120th minute and set up a last-eight clash with England in Rome.
