Ukraine book quarter-final clash with England in Rome on Saturday as Artem Dovbyk nets dramatic winner against Sweden

Ukraine book their quarterfinal date with England.

All roads lead to Rome on Saturday, but this trail was winding and draining for Andriy Shevchenko’s side.

Artem Dovbyk heads home in 121st minute with just two minutes of stoppage time left to play.

A great delivery from Zinchenko into Dovbyk, who puts it into the back of the net in brilliant fashion.

Artem Dovbyk’s goal for the Ukraine is the second-latest goal in European Championship history.

He’s behind Semih Senturk against Croatia in 2008 (clocked at 121:01 minutes).

Dovbyk’s goal sets the record for the latest match-winning goal in the tournament, overtaking Michel Platini’s last-minute winner against Portugal in 1984 (at 118:53).

Ukraine were in front when Oleksandr Zinchenko brilliantly strike into the top roof of the net. Robin Olson has no chance, with the kind of power and strength that ball has.

Swedish midfielder Forsberg bows out of the tournament with four goals, just one shy of Ronaldo’s leading total of five.

He very well could have added more to his tally this evening, having struck the woodwork against Ukraine twice but still managing to score the equaliser.

He also the first Swedish player to score in three major tournament appearances in a row since Kennet Andersson at the 1994 World Cup.

It wasn’t to be, though, and Sweden go home while Ukraine anticipate their quarter-final match-up against England.
