That's all from us today folks, we hope you enjoyed the game!
Ukraine will be pleased that they have clinched the win without having to go to penalties and they will now face England in the quarter-finals which takes place in Rome on Saturday.
Ukraine book their place in the quarter-finals of Euro 2020 after a 2-1 victory over Sweden in extra-time. It appeared to be heading to penalties, but Dovbyk popped up in added time at the end of extra-time to head Ukraine into the lead and there wasn't enough time left on the clock for Sweden to respond. There wasn't an awful lot of action in extra-time, after Danielson was shown a straight red for a dangerous challenge, so Sweden just sat back and defended, but conceded late on.

FULL-TIME: SWEDEN 1-2 UKRAINE
120' + 4'
Sweden are throwing everyone forward now in search of a late equaliser, but it looks like Ukraine will hold on to move into the next round.
120' + 2'
Dovbyk is booked for his celebrations after removing his shirt after the goal.
120' + 1'
What a ball from Zinchenko, that's a goal and an assist for the Manchester City defender today. It was perfectly placed onto the head of Dovbyk, who made no mistakes with the finish.
120' + 1'
GOAL! Ukraine have surely won it in extra-time! Dovbyk makes it 2-1 in additional time at the end of extra-time! It's a superb cross into the box from the left wing by Zinchenko and Dovbyk gets ahead of his marker and powers a header into the back of the net. That should be enough to send them into the quarter-finals.
We'll play another three minutes at the end of extra-time!
Yet another stoppage in extra-time, with Bezus down with a shoulder injury after a clash with Helander. However, there doesn't seem to be much of an issue and he is fine to continue.
Final change by Ukraine now and Sydorchuk has been replaced by Bezus.
Wide! The ball falls nicely to Malinovsky on the edge of the penalty area and he volleys an effort towards goal, but it flies wide of the Sweden goal.
There is a bit more of an urgency about Ukraine now, they are playing the ball around the pitch with more intent, looking for a winner late on.
Another stoppage in extra-time, with Berg now wearing the captains armband for Sweden and he is down with an injury. However, he should be fine to continue.
ALMOST! Dovbyk is played through on goal, after Malinovskiy slides the ball in behind the Sweden defence and the striker only has Olsen to beat. However, the keeper makes himself as big as possible and gets the slightest of touches on the effort, sending it over the crossbar. However, it wouldn't have counted anyway as Dovbyk was offside and the flag goes up.
Sweden have everyone back behind the ball now, they are camped inside their own half just soaking up the Ukraine pressure.
Ukraine could push on and try and nick it late into extra-time, they have the man advantage, so you would think they'd be eager to get this wrapped up as soon as they can.
The second half of extra-time is under way!
Another Ukraine change, with Yarmolenko replaced by Dovbyk ahead of the second half in extra-time.
Sweden are down to 10-men after Danielson is shown a straight red card for a dangerous challenge on Besedin, following a VAR check. Neither team had any chances in the first half of extra-time, with both making numerous changes, so it hasn't flowed at all. It looks like we will be heading to penatlies.
105' + 6'
HALF-TIME: SWEDEN 1-1 UKRAINE
105' + 4'
Kryvtsov is the latest player to go down and require medical treatment, but the centre-back should also be fine to continue.
105' + 2'
Sweden might look to sit deep and see the game out to penalties now, they probably won't be able to venture forward much with 10-men.
Another stoppage in play here as Krafth is down with a head injury and the medical team are on the pitch, but it looks like he will be fine to continue.
After all of the stoppages, we are playing an additional three minutes in the first half of extra-time.
Apart from the red card, there hasn't been much action in the first half of extra-time, with both sides making plenty of changes, which isn't allowing the game to flow.
Besedin appears to be in a lot of pain and he has had to come off following the challenge by Danielson. Tsygankov is his replacement.
Sweden have made a change following the sending off, with Olsson making way and he has been replaced by Helander.
RED CARD! The referee has changed his mind after watching the challenge again and Danielsson is shown a straight red card! Despite getting the ball, it's a horror challenge by the Sweden centre-back, catching Besedin really high on the leg and it doesn't look like he will be able to continue. Sweden are down to 10-men.
POSSIBLE RED CARD! Danielson dives into a challenge with Besedin and gets the ball, but it’s a really high challenge and he catches Besedin really high on the leg with his studs up. The referee initially shows a yellow card, but VAR are taking a look and the referee is now going over to the monitor to check the decision.
Larsson is the third man to come off and he has been replaced by Claesson.
Isak also heads off and he has been replaced by Berg.
Here comes a triple change by Sweden now, the first sees Kulusevski come off and he has been replaced by Quaison.
Another Ukraine substitution, with Stepanenko heading off the pitch and he has been replaced by Makarenko.
There are a few tired legs out there for both teams now and you can see that the pace has dropped, with no goalscoring chances for a while.
Extra-time is under way!
Ukraine have made a change ahead of extra-time, with Yaremchuk replaced by Besedin.
The final 15 minutes or so of the second half were quite cagey, with the pace dropping and it looked like neither team wanted to make a mistake that lead to a goal. Can either team win it in extra-time, or will we head to penalties?
We’re going to extra-time after it finishes 1-1 in normal time between Sweden and Ukraine! Both of the goals came in the first half, with Zinchenko firing Ukraine ahead, before Sweden equalised through Forsberg just before the break. Sweden looked the better team in the second period, having a few chances to score a second, with Forsberg hitting the woodwork twice. However, Ukraine also struck the post themselves and have looked dangerous on the counter-attack.
90' + 2'
END OF 90 MINUTES: SWEDEN 1-1 UKRAINE
There will be a minimum of two minutes added time played at the end of the second half.
BLOCKED! Kulusevski races in behind, getting away from Zabarnyi and he then tries to beat Bushchan from a tight angle, but the defender does brilliantly to get back and make the block, sending it behind for a corner.
It looks like both teams are happy to see the game out and we might be heading to extra-time, as neither want to make a mistake which leads to a late goal.
Forsberg is booked after his swinging arm catches Stepanenko.
Stoppage in play here as Augustinsson is down with an injury and is receiving some treatment on the pitch. It doesn't look like he will be able to continue.
The other change sees Lustig replaced by Krafth at right-back.
Here is the first Sweden change, with Augustinsson heading off and he has been replaced by Bengtsson.
There's less than 10 minutes left to play of normal time now, can either side nick a winner late on? Or, will we have to go to extra-time?
Yarmolenko is booked after he complains that Ekdal hasn't been booked for a challenge on him. The winger vented his frustrated at the referee and is booked for dissent.
The pace has dropped in the last few minutes, with neither team really looking like scoring a winner at the moment. However, if anyone is going to score another for Sweden, you would fancy Forsberg to get it as he has been excellent.
This is better from Ukraine, they are giving themselves a bit of a rest by keeping the ball in midfield and putting a stop to the Sweden attacks. A few more changes may be needed if either team are to win this in normal time.
Ukraine are sitting deep and are soaking up the pressure now, they are playing with a back five at times as the Sweden attacks continue.
This is the third time the woodwork has been hit today - which is the joint-most in a game at EURO 2020, along with Poland v Spain (3).
The first yellow card of the game is shown to Kulusevski after he deliberately fouls Zinchenko to stop him from breaking up the pitch.
OFF THE BAR! What a strike by Forsberg! The winger cuts inside from the left wing, skipping past a couple of defenders and then whips an effort towards the top right corner of the net. However, it just doesn't dip enough and it cannons off the crossbar.
Another Ukraine counter-attack that leads to an opportunity in front of goal! Yarmolenko is found deep inside the penalty area and only has Olsen to beat, but his effort is too close to the keeper, who makes a good stop.
SAVE! Ukraine fail to deal with a deep corner from the left and it falls to Kulusevski on the edge of the box, who tries to curl it into the top left corner, however, Bushchan reads it well and makes an excellent diving save.
No sign of any changes by Sweden just yet, it will be interesting to see how long they leave it before bringing some fresh legs on to try and get the second goal.
Sweden are on top at the moment, enjoying more possession, but they need to be wary of a Ukraine counter, as they have looked dangerous on the break so far.
Ukraine make their first substitution of the game, with Shaparenko the man coming off and he has been replaced by Malinovskyi.
CHANCE! How did he miss? Isak is released through on goal, sneaking in behind the Ukraine defence after an excellent ball over the top by Ekdal. The striker then only had Bushchan to beat, but he doesn't strike it cleanly and it bounces wide. He should have made it 2-1!
We've seen two excellent chances in the last few minutes, both teams look strong in attack and they've shown that they can be opened up at the back.
OFF THE POST AGAIN! This time it's Sweden with the chance and Forsberg almost gets his second of the game. It comes following a quick counter-attack, after Isak dribbles past a couple of Ukraine defenders, before laying it to Forsberg, who cuts inside and tries to bend it into the back of the net. However, it clips the bottom of the right post.
OFF THE POST! Yarmolenko does well down the right wing once again, before pulling the ball back to Sydorchuk, who had raced forward from deep and the midfielder drills an effort towards goal, which has Olsen beaten. However, it clips the outside of the post and bounces wide. So close.
Not too far away! Forsberg quickly lays the ball off to Larsson on the edge of the penalty area, who gets a shot away and it flies just wide of the bottom left corner of the net.
Almost! Ukraine try and counter quickly, with Yarmolenko trying to latch onto a long ball over the top of the Sweden defence. However, Olsen reads it really well and heads it clear, helping his defenders out.
Forsberg has now scored four goals at EURO 2020 - only Kennet Andersson (5 at 1994 World Cup) has ever netted more for Sweden at a major tournament.
Sweden have started the second half well, getting plenty of players forward and the front two of Isak and Kulusevski are causing a few problems.
The second half is under way!
This game could go either way, with both teams having had good chances and defending well in numbers. The winners of this match will face England in the quarter-finals on Saturday.
It's level at the break between Sweden and Ukraine, with Forsberg making it 1-1 just a couple of minutes before the half-time whistle. The game got off to a slow start, but picked up as Ukraine opened the scoring on 27 minutes, thanks to a powerful effort from Zinchenko. They then looked comfortable and should have seen it out to half-time. However, Forsberg tried his luck from long range and it took a big deflection off Zabarnyi, which sent it into the back of the net.
HALF-TIME: SWEDEN 1-1 UKRAINE
Isak has played well again for Sweden and he couldn't work space for the shot himself, so he lays it off to Forsberg, who fancied his chances and fired the ball into the back of the net.
GOAL! Forsberg fires Sweden back into the game, it’s 1-1! What a strike it is from the winger, but it does take a big deflection off Zabarnyi. Forsberg picked up the ball around 25 yards out and didn’t have much on so he went for goal, firing it towards the bottom left corner of the net. However, Zabarnyi gets across and tries to make the block, but this flicks it up and over Bushchan, who is helpless in goal.
Penalty shout! Kulusevski dribbles into the box and flicks the ball past Karavayev, but then just runs into his opponent and throws himself to the ground, before appealing for a penalty. However, the referee isn't interested and waves away the Sweden appeals.
Ukraine look pretty comfortable at the moment, they are keeping their shape well at the back, protecting Bushchan, who hasn't been troubled much so far.
There isn’t long left to play before the end of the first half, can Sweden find an equaliser before the half-time whistle?
Sweden are trying to push forward in search of an equaliser, but when Ukraine are put under pressure they are dropping into a back five to soak it up.
Zinchenko is Ukraine's youngest scorer at the EUROs (24y 196d), while only Andriy Rusol has netted at a younger age for them at a major tournament (23y 154d v Saudi Arabia in 2006).
We’re past the half an hour mark now and it's Ukraine who lead 1-0 thanks to Zinchenko's strike after 27 minutes. Sweden have since gone close to an equaliser.
CHANCE! Larsson tries to catch Bushchan out at his near post from a free-kick, curling an effort towards the bottom right corner of the net. However, the keeper just manages to get across in the nick of time and makes a brilliant save to keep Sweden out.
It's great skill by Yarmolenko to pick out Zinchenko at the far post, as he crosses it with the outside of his boot, so it curls away from the Sweden defenders. Zinchenko then does the rest with an excellent finish.
GOAL! Ukraine take the lead, it’s 1-0! They work it quickly across the pitch, with Yarmolenko then receiving it down the right wing and he curls a cross deep into the box for Zinchenko to meet at the far post and the left-back is unmarked and volleys it into the back of the net. Olsen gets a touch on it, but it’s too powerful to keep out and it lands in the top corner.
The game is a bit scrappy at the moment, with neither team really on top and dominating, quite cagey as both don't want to make a mistake that leads to a goal.
Zinchenko plays a lovely ball in behind the Sweden defence and Shaparenko tries to race onto the end of it, however, Olsen reads it well and comes out to gather and clear the danger.
This is better from Ukraine, they've managed to push forward themselves and Sweden are now having to do the defending.
Good effort! Another good move by Sweden, with Kulusevski once again involved and this time he plays the ball through to Isak in the box, who tries to curl it into the bottom right corner of the net. However, he gets too much on it and it flies wide.
Decent chance! Lustig plays a lovely through ball to Kulusevski down the right wing and he cuts back onto his left foot and whips an excellent cross into the box. However, it is slightly too high for Forsberg, who can't quite get his head to it and it flies well wide.
Sweden just seem to be lacking intent in the final third, they are working the ball nicely in midfield, but just can't find away through the Ukraine defence.
There's not much happening so far, with the crowd yet to get going as well as they haven't had much to cheer about. The best opportunity we’ve seen fell to Yaremchuk a few minutes ago.
The last meeting between Sweden and Ukraine was in EURO 2012, with Ukraine coming from behind to win 2-1 thanks to a brace from current manager Shevchenko.
SAVE! Olsen is called into action to deny Yaremchuk! It's a lovely one-two between Yarmolenko and Yaremchuk, with the latter finding space in the box and he fires a powerful effort towards goal, however, it's too close to Olsen, who makes a great save, pushing it out wide.
Wild effort! Ukraine manage to get up the pitch and catch Sweden out at the back, with Shaparenko finding time and space on the edge of the box and he fires a low effort towards goal. However, it flies well wide.
Blocked! Sweden work the ball well into the final third and it eventually comes out to Kulusevski just inside the box and he works space for the shot, firing one towards goal. However, a Stepanenko gets across well and makes the block.
Ukraine are struggling to get out of their own half at the moment, with their opponents seeing more of the ball and Ukraine are having to do a lot of chasing.
Good early possession here by Sweden, they are keeping the ball nicely in midfield and they look keen to push on and open the scoring.
We're under way!
The teams are out on the pitch and kick-off is just a few minutes away, stay tuned for all the match action!
