Welcome to the highlights of the EURO 2020 Round of 16 game between Sweden and Ukraine at Hampden Park in Glasgow.

WOW! WOW! WOW! What a final Round of 16 match we have witnessed. It was end to end for such a long time but you could not separate the sides after regulation time.

In extra time, just when it seemed like we could be heading for penalties, Artem Dovbyk scored the winner with two minutes left on the clock to seal the win for his side and book a date with England on Saturday.

That match will be played in Rome on Saturday. Join us for that and the other quarterfinal matches later in the week. Until then it is Goodbye and stay safe.

110' WHAT A SAVE FROM OLSEN!! Ukraine nearly takes the lead courtesy Dovbyk, but the goalkeeper puts a foot in. The flag was up soon enough.

SECOND HALF OF EXTRA TIME BEGINS!

 

The opening half ends. FINALLY! It is still 1-1.

WHAT A SECOND HALF WE SAW! So many shots towards goals in the opening 20 minutes. A number of them smashing into the post. And eventually, this game extends to decide who moves into the quarterfinal.

The referee blows the final whistle and the end of regulation time it ends 1-1, which means we head into extra time.

TWO MINUTES OF ADDED TIME!

89' NEARLY! NEARLY! Kulusevski gets a good ball in, he sprints with it, but Zabarnyi is there to put in a foot and prevent it from going near goal.

84' Forsberg is booked for a challenge on Steparenko. The replays indicate it was a very harsh booking.

30 MINUTES OF REGULATION TIME LEFT! WHO KNOWS WHAT IS LEFT IN THIS GAME!

53' CHANCE! Nice play from Sweden as Forsberg puts in a pass for Larsson, who takes a shot from a distance that goes wide.

50' Ukraine reclaims the possession, but it swings towards Sweden once again. Shades of the start of the first half in the second as well.

48' Sweden has become this half on the front foot, but is unable to make the most of the possession. Ukraine gets the ball, tries to go for goal, but the ball is saved.

WELCOME BACK! Sweden kicks off proceedings in second half!

 

That was an entertaining half of football from the word go as both teams exchanged possession in the opening phase.

The key moment arrived in the 27th minutes as a lovely bit of play from Shaparenko saw his ball coming towards Yarmalenko whose cross went to Zinchenko and his left-footed shot found the back of the net.

With half-time nearing, Sweden needed a response and it got that in the dying minutes, as Emil Forsberg equalised courtesy a shot with his left foot, which took a deflection off Zabarnyi, but landed at the back of the net.
