The striker’s end came after the 120th minute, making him the second last goal to be scored in the competition
Ukrainian striker Artem Dovbek’s goal in the match against Sweden last Tuesday went into history as the latest winner to score in the history of the European Championship.
Ukraine beat Sweden 2-1 in the round of 16 match on Tuesday, with the two sides exchanging goals in 90 minutes as Oleksandr Zinchenko and Emil Forsberg scored.
However, Sweden’s Markus Danielson’s red card opened the door for Ukraine, who finally smashed their 10-man opponent just minutes into overtime.
Dubbek’s goal, which came from Zinchenko’s stunning cross, scored in the 121st minute, making it one of the latest goals in the competition’s history.
The goal was with a time of 120:37, the second last goal ever scored in the European Championship, behind only Semih Sinturk’s goal against Croatia in 2008, which hit the net in the 121:01 minute.
However, Tuesday’s goal was the last win in European Championship history, surpassing Frenchman Michel Platini’s goal against Portugal in 1984, which came at a mark of 118:53.
