Glasgow ∙ Ukraine forward Artem Besadin can cry and laugh at the same time! A little exaggerated but that is the truth. Sweden’s Marcus Danielson was knocked out by Besadin in extra time in the Euro Cup pre – quarterfinals. However, Danielson was shown a red card for beating Bessad, and Ukraine advanced to the Euro quarterfinals, beating Sweden 2–1, who were reduced to 10 men. England will face England in the quarter-finals on July 3.
Sweden defender Marcus Danielson was shown a red card in the first half of extra time. Sweden then had to play with 10 men and could not hold their own against the fighting spirit of Ukraine, coached by former superstar Andrei Shevchenko. The game was a warning to keep Ukraine in further matches in the Euros. Ukraine’s youngsters were able to put relatively experienced Swedish players on the drawing board and take control of the game.
Artem Dobic scored Ukraine’s winning goal in extra time injury time (120 + 1). Dobic, who has not played a single game in the tournament so far, was replaced by coach Shevchenko as an experiment. The 24-year-old scored the first international goal of his career, scoring the winning goal, headed in by Alexander Sinchenko’s cross.
Ukraine took the lead in the game but then drew level. In the 27th minute, Andrei Yarmolenko connected the ball to the right wing and it was lifted by Alexander Sinchenko, who did not score on the left wing. Cinchenko’s bullet into Swedish goalkeeper Robben Olsen’s net (1–0). Sweden struck back in the 43rd minute. Emil Fosberg’s smashing shoot. Goalkeeper Bushan was unable to stop a deflected shot by Ukrainian defender Ilya Sabani (1–1).
