Ukraine is the last to qualify for the quarter-finals of the European Football Championship. It needed extra time against Sweden, who fell with ten in extra time after Danielson was shown red. In the end it was Artem Dovbyk, the fourth striker, who scored in the 121st minute. Remarkable: three of the four best thirds have qualified for the quarter-finals.

Sweden – Ukraine in a nutshell:

  • Key moment: In the first extra time, Sweden suddenly ends up with ten after a bold action by Danielson. Despite this, the Swedes still seem to be able to save on penalties, until substitute Dovbyk brings Ukraine into ecstasy deep in the 2nd extension with the winning goal.
  • Man of the match: Rarely seen anyone so delirious with joy than Oleksandr Zinchenko. The Manchester City midfielder silenced the critics in the 1st half with a wonderful goal and shook a decisive assist from his slippers at the end of the 2nd extension.
  • Remarkable: Ukraine is piling up the firsts. As the worst best, it hit 3rd with the heels over the ditch for the first time in the knockout phase of a European Championship and is now even in the quarter finals. In it, Switzerland and the Czech Republic are joined by 2 other best third parties from the group stage. Portugal is the only one of the 4 best thirds not to be in the quarter-finals.

Forsberg wipes out Zinchenko’s beautiful goal

Ukraine only just made it to the 1/8th finals and therefore started the match against Sweden as an underdog. Still, after just 10 minutes, it almost took the lead. Jarmolenko found Yaremchuk and he immediately forced Olsen to a clever save.

The possession was for Sweden, but that did not yield many concrete opportunities. Ukraine skilfully cut the roads to Isak, only once was the Swedish attacker dangerous when he narrowly missed.

On the half hour it was suddenly a feast with a magnificent attack by the Ukrainians. With a wonderful pass outside of the foot, Jarmolenko got the ball to the detached Zinchenko and he struck out in one go. Olsen was there for a while, but could not prevent the 0-1. A frenzied Zinchenko gave his critics close quarters with a finger to his mouth.

Sweden reacted immediately with a surprising far free kick from Larsson, but Boesjtsjan was on the right track. The Swedes crashed into the Ukrainian wall until they had some luck shortly before halftime. A long shot from Forsberg deviated from Zabarnyi and left Boshtsjan without a chance. With his 4th goal at this European Championship, Forsberg brought Sweden alongside again.

Doelhout keeps Ukraine and Sweden ahead

In the second half it remained a fascinating match in Glasgow. The first danger came from Ukraine, a shot from Sidorchuk hit the outside of the post. Sweden could not stay behind. Forsberg got a lot of space on a pass from Isak, but his place ball also stranded on the post.

Ten minutes later it was not the goal wood, but goalkeeper Boesjtsjan kept Sweden from a lead. He made a fine save on a nice shot by Kulusevski. Jarmolenko continued to be the driving force behind the Ukrainian attacks. He also had an excellent chance, but decided too weak in the hands of Olsen.

Things were still going crazy in Glasgow. Forsberg once again underlined his strong European Championship with a wonderful dribble in the sixteen. Also crowning the action with his 5th European Championship goal just didn’t work out, because after the post the bar was now the spoilsport for the Swedish star.

The fear of the fatal goal against the goal crept in on both teams. Still, it was especially shivering for Ukraine when Ekdal launched Kulusevski again in the final phase, but Zabarnyi was able to block the Juventus player’s shot.

Red for Danielson, Dovbyk is the Ukrainian hero

Extensions, therefore, with a crucial moment after 10 minutes when Danielson went into a duel. He hit the ball, but also went straight on Besedin’s knee. After the intervention of the VAR, he was excluded, while the unfortunate Besedin was also forced to leave.

The numerical superiority suddenly opened up prospects for Ukraine, where the invaders made the difference. On a pass from Malinovsky, Dovbyk suddenly came alone in front of Olsen, but he couldn’t get the ball past the goalkeeper and was also slightly offside. Malinovsky himself also created danger with a volley that went just wide.

The penalty shootout seemed inevitable, but in the 121st minute Ukraine still struck mercilessly. Zinchenko painted the ball on Dovbyk’s head and Olsen didn’t stand a chance this time. The substitute headed Ukraine to an unexpected quarterfinal against England. Sweden was left orphaned.

Shevchenko: “Our plan worked perfectly”

Andrei Shevchenko was already a national hero in Ukraine, but will now be even more esteemed. Ukraine is in the quarter-finals of the European Championship for the first time. “Both teams played very well,” said the national coach.

“It was an interesting match. Neither team wanted to lose, which is why we had such a dramatic denouement. With this achievement and this commitment, our team deserves the love of the whole country. We knew how to play today from the start. We knew who could be an added value during the match. Our plan has worked perfectly.”

Andersson: “Extremely hard to be knocked out like that”

Very different emotions in a disappointed Janne Andersson, who struggled to hold back his tears. “This is a very bitter defeat. In the second half we had four really great chances. It seemed like we would eventually score,” said the Swedish national coach.

“This is the worst thing I’ve experienced in my football career. We were the better team and getting a red card like that is very sour. That exclusion was decisive. The players fought for it. Only to be eliminated in the final seconds, That’s terrible and very hard.”

“We have come close to something beautiful, but our European Championships were still successful. It had been since 2004 since Sweden once again survived the group stage. We played a good tournament, even if there is now a sour aftertaste.”
