Ukraine scores dramatic win as it prepares to face England

Artem Duvbek did it. The Ukrainian striker scored the goal in the 121st minute to send his country to the quarter-finals of Euro 2020 at the expense of Sweden.

Ukraine and Sweden entered tonight’s match knowing that if they win, England will wait in the quarter-finals, as the Three Lions beat Germany 2-0 earlier in the day.

The two teams couldn’t be separated in 90 minutes, as the score was 1-1, so I waited an extra 30 minutes of football, which seemed to have us in no time at all.

Penalty kicks seemed inevitable.
