The end of the forward came after the 120th minute, making it the second youngest goal ever in the competition
Ukraine’s forward Artem Dovbyk’s match goal against Sweden made history on Tuesday as the latest winner in the European Championship.
Ukraine defeated Sweden 2-1 in Tuesday’s final 16 match, with the two parties’ goals within 90 minutes, while Oleksandr Zinchenko and Emil Forsberg each found the back of the net.
However, a red card for Sweden’s Marcus Danielson opened the door for Ukraine, who eventually outscored their ten-man rivals by just minutes.
A deceased winner
Dovbyk’s goal, coming from a beautiful Zinchenko cross, was scored in the 121st minute, making it one of the newest points in the history of the competition.
The goal was at 120: 37 and was the second youngest point ever scored in the Euros, just behind Semih Senturk’s goal against Croatia in 2008, which hit the back of the net at 121: 01.
Tuesday’s goal, however, was the last match winner in Euro history, surpassing Frenchman Michel Platini’s match winner against Portugal in 1984, which reached 118:53.
Next for Ukraine
With their victory over Sweden, Ukraine booked a place in the quarterfinals, where they will face England’s other winners on Tuesday.
The Three Lions defeated Germany 2-0 at Wembley Stadium to book their own place in the quarter-finals, with Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane providing the goals.
Ukraine and England will now face each other in Rome on Saturday with the winner who will face Denmark or the Czech Republic in the last four forces.
