Sweden 1 Ukraine 2 (AET) LIVE REACTION: Dovbyk’s last-gasp extra-time winner seals quarter-final clash vs England


120+1. Astonishing scenes!

In stoppage time at the end of extra-time, substitute Artem Dovbyk has sent Ukraine into the quarter-finals of the European Championships!

Having scored the opener, Oleksandr Zinchenko now creates the winner with a beautifully pinpoint cross from the left touchline that’s perfect for Dovbyk arriving between two defenders.

Stooping low, the striker’s connection is true as he heads past Robin Olsen for his first international goal.

Only in Andriy Shevchenko’s squad due to Junior Moraes’ injury, the 23-year-old has made himself a national hero. He rips his shirt off in celebration – earning a booking that won’t bother him – before being mobbed by teammates and staff.

There’s a short anxious wait as VAR check for an offside, but Dovbyk had timed his run to perfection, and is just played on by Victor Lindelof.

Ukraine are destined for Rome and the quarter-finals.
