That's all, folks 👋
Cheers for sticking with us today through all the fun and madness! What a way to wrap up the Euro 2020 last-16 stage with two fantastic showings from our final quarter-finalists, England and Ukraine. We'll be back on Friday for more action, this time between Italy vs Belgium and Switzerland vs Spain. Grab your popcorn!
See you soon!
Ukraine score latest ever Euros winner
Scored at 120:37, 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).
The route to continental glory 🏆
Scenes from the Ukraine team
They're still celebrating on the pitch with their supportings, dancing and hugging and being all-around very merry.
Coach Andriy Shevchenko looks particularly emotional.
No top-scorer prize for Forsberg...
The Swedish midfielder 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. It wasn't to be, though, and Sweden go home while Ukraine anticipate their quarter-final match-up against England.
A winner scored in the 121th minute!
What is it with the Euros this year? It's been total and utter madness in the round of 16 so far, and long may it continue through to the quarter-finals and beyond.
Here's how your quarter-finals shape up:
🇧🇪 Belgium vs Italy 🇮🇹
🇨🇭 Switzerland vs Spain 🇪🇸
🇺🇦 Ukraine vs England 🏴
🇨🇿 Czech Republic vs Denmark 🇩🇰
FT: Sweden 1-2 Ukraine (AET)
Well, that's that. England will face Ukraine in Rome in the quarter-finals, after Ukraine beat Sweden 2-1 in the final minute of stoppage time of extra-time in the very last round of 16 match.
Whew. Take all that in!
Heartbreak for Sweden
Poor Sweden, who have defended staunchly since going a man down, only for it all to fall apart in the last possible minute.
Artem Dovbyk is the hero for Ukraine. Andriy Shevchenko is ecstatic on the sidelines.
GOAL!!!! Sweden 1-2 Ukraine
GOAL!!!! Artem Dovbyk heads home with just two minutes of stoppage time left to play!
What a great delivery from Zinchenko into Dovbyk, who puts it into the back of the net in brilliant fashion.
Helander clears the danger
Mykola Matviyenko crosses the ball into the box, but it's safely chested away by Filip Helander, with Robin Olsen collecting the ball.
We're just a minute or two away from penalties. Whew.
Actually, we're three minutes away - as the ref has just signalled for three minutes of added time.
Ukraine with a shot, wide
Malinovskywith a shot now that's ultimately wide of the goal.
Sweden are defending with their lives here, down to 10 men and not conceding a goal since Danielson's departure. Yet.
Berg down injured
Ukraine fluff their chance!
Dovbyk over the bar - but it's offside!
Oh dear 🥵
First half of extra-time ends without a goal
No goals scored in extra-time yet, but Sweden have had a man sent off (Danielson).
We've got 15 minutes left to play, and if a winner still isn't scored by then, we're headed into penalties, just 24 hours after Switzerland vs France's historic one...
Krivtsov needing treatment
The Ukrainian is forced to limp off the pitch. Playing an additional 30 minutes looks to be getting to the players – it's so physically gruelling.
Forsberg with a shot, well over the crossbar
Ukraine win their first corner!
Yes. Their first-ever corner of the game. In the 115th minute.
While Sweden have had six.
The game has shifted...
Red card for Danielson
Oh dear! The Swede is forced to leave the pitch in extra-time after his tackle. Sweden are now down to 10 men.
Biesiedin now needs aid to leave the field.
That's the first red card in Euro 2020!
VAR checks for red card!
We're now in extra-time
Sweden 1-1 Ukraine
Yup. We're into extra-time.
Here we go!
Two added minutes...
Sweden shot blocked!
Less than 10 minutes to find a winner!
Augustinsson injured on the field
The Sweden defender is receiving medical treatment now, and is going to be replaced imminently. He's subbed off for Pierre Bengtsson.
Mikael Lustig is also off for Emil Krafth.
Forsberg hits the post - AGAIN!
Olsen saves from Yarmolenko
Buschan makes a crucial save!
Isak with a huge chance!
Now Forsberg hits the post
Ukraine hit the post!
Sweden's new 🐐?
Emil Forsberg is now the first player to score four goals at a single Euro tournament.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has scored six goals in total at European Championships!
No Zlatan... yes party! 🇸🇪
Emil Forsberg has become the first Swedish player to score in three major tournament appearances in a row since Kennet Andersson at the 1994 World Cup.
Andersson also remains the only Swedish player to score goals more at a single tournament than Forsberg's four strikes so far (he managed five).
Back underway in the second half!
HT: Sweden 1-1 Ukraine
May the Forsberg be with you 🪐
Emil Forsberg is now on four goals in the Euro 2020 top-scorer race, equal with Patrik Schick and Karim Benzema (who can't better his tally).
He's one goal away from equallying Ronaldo's number (five)!
GOAL!!!! Sweden 1-1 Ukraine
GOAL! Sweden have equalised through Emil Forsberg, who now has four goals to his name in Euro 2020 so far!
What a goal that was – it was a piledriver from outside the box that takes a minor deflection, but there was only one destination. Game on!
Activity in the Sweden box
Yarmolenko over the bar
Larsson's shot punched away
GOAL!!! Sweden 0-1 Ukraine
Farewell to a legend 👋
Isak with a shot – just wide!
Emil Forsberg for the Euro 2020 Golden Boot?
It might've sounded crazy before the tournament, but as the last-16 matches come to a close with all its surprise knockouts, it could very well be a possibility! Forsberg has three goals to his name so far, and Cristiano Ronaldo has five. Ronaldo, of course, can't better his tally, as Portugal were unceremoniously knocked out by Belgium.
Can Sweden do it? 🇸🇪
Olsen makes a great shot!
Shaparenko goes for goal
Sweden with a shot!
So long! 👋
Underway at Hampden Park for Sweden vs Ukraine!
Here we go...
The winner this evening gets to play England.
🗣 Southgate: 'We had to go about it in the way we believed'
Gareth Southgate to BBC One on the lineup: “You know you change the shape, you pick certain personnel in place of others and if it goes wrong you’re dead. We had to go about it in the way we believed. We wanted aggressive pressure all over the field and we felt that to match them up was the right way of doing that.
"We felt that speed in behind Harry would cause them problems. I thought that Bukayo and Raheem really created that jepoardy in behind their backline right from the start. We also defended brilliantly and our goalkeeper was immense. It was a tremendous performance.”
🗣 Southgate: 'It was as good an atmosphere as I can remember in Wembley'
Gareth Southgate tells BBC One: “I just thought it was a brilliant afternoon. We talked about bringing enjoyment to the nation and afternoon’s like that are what it’s all about. The players were absolutely immense right through the team. The fans were as well - only 40,000 but it was as good an atmosphere as I can remember in Wembley. We played exteremely well, I think we deserved the win but I’ve had to say to them straight away.
“Look, I’m the party pooper, because if we don’t capitalise on Saturday now then it doesn’t count for anything.”
🗣 Low: 'We hoped for more'
Joachim Low: "It is a disappointment for all of us. We hoped for more, the faith in the team was absolutely there. We had two great chances, but unfortunately we didn't score any goals. We're sorry we're out of the tournament.
"But we've worked hard for the past four weeks, and everyone has pulled along well. I can't blame anyone. I am sorry that the great enthusiasm at home is now gone. The disappointment weighs heavily. An hour or two has to pass before you address a few words to the team.
"All players are utterly disappointed, so are we. We have a lot of young players who will learn from it. At the home European championships in 2024, some will be at their absolute top level, also in terms of experience."
Living in dreamland ⭐️
🗣 Sterling: 'Scoring for your country is always special'
Raheem Sterling tells the BBC: “We knew we needed to put a big performance in against a very good German side and I thought we done that today. Scoring for your country is always special and it’s definitely a special moment for me.
“I celebrated and for half a second I thought ‘Don’t let it be offside’. I’m really happy it went in and I’m really happy we got the win.”
He then forgets Kalvin Phillips' name!
🗣 Kroos: 'We lacked effectiveness'
Toni Kroos to magentatv: "It was a very even game until the goal. Both teams neutralised each other. Maybe we lacked effectiveness. We progressed from a difficult groub but this is very disappointing now."
🗣 Havertz: 'Bitter evening'
Can they do it? 🏴
Is this the year for England?
What a moment for Kane
With the goal, Harry Kane has now equalled Wayne Rooney for goals scored at major tournaments for England with seven. Only Gary Lineker with 10 and Alan Shearer with nine have more.
Kane also has now scored 30 goals for England under Gareth Southgate. In England history, only Gary Lineker scored more under a single manager (35 under Bobby Robson).
FINAL: England 2 - 0 Germany
England have done it!
It won't erase all of the painful losses of the past, but it's a start! Goals from Sterling and Kane, a few big misses from Germany and England are heading to the quarter-final round.
'Football's coming home!'
The famous song is echoing around Wembley as Germany start to throw everything forward.
Mats Hummels, for example, has taken up a spot as a centre-forward.
AND IT'S 2-0 TO ENGLAND!
The party is starting in London is Kane FINALLY finds his goal. Shaw gets the ball out to Grealish on the left, and the Aston Villa man whips it into the centre of the box. Kane is able to get a slight touch to direct it towards goal, all but sealing England's quarter-final place.
Muller's Euro nightmare continues
Muller fired wide!
England completely fall asleep and Muller breaks in all alone on goal.
The Bayern man pushes it just wide, though, as all of England can exhale.
Rice hyping up the fans
Rice has been just about everywhere today, and now he's playing the role of hype an.
The West Ham man gestured towards the crowd to stand up and get loud as England look to protect this 1-0 lead.
No tournament goals, no problem
Heading into the Euros, Raheem Sterling hadn't scored for England at a major tournament. He now has all three of their goals this summmer.
3 - Raheem Sterling is only the second player to score each of England's first three goals of an edition of a major tournament (World Cup/EUROs), after @GaryLineker did so at the 1986 World Cup. Magic. pic.twitter.com/SDfOiN3GSR— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) June 29, 2021
ENGLAND HAVE TAKEN THE LEAD!
A fantastic attacking sequence from England, with Kane working the ball out wide to Grealish, who then finds Shaw. The Man Utd fullback whipped in a low cross, leaving Sterling with just a tap-in to give England the 1-0 lead in the 76th minute.
Trippier down for England
Tripper down and receiving treatment after what looks like a leg injury.
James warming up for England, but it appears Trippier will stay on and give it a go.
Yellow card for Gosens
And those coming off
First subs coming on
More subs warming up
Some options on the bench for England
Havertz and Werner link up for a chance
Kane down injured
A quick reminder...
Havertz nearly does it!
Second half is underway!
What would Haaland do?
Safe to say we know what Erling Haaland would do if he were in Gareth Southgate's waistcoat.
Time to bring on Sancho...— Erling Haaland (@ErlingHaaland) June 29, 2021
HALFTIME: England 0 - 0 Germany
What a clearance by Hummels!
Yellow card for Phillips
Some celebrities in attendence
Dangerous set piece coming for England
A decent start for Werner
HUGE save for Pickford!
Just two touches for Kane so far
England on the front foot
Great delivery from Trippier
England growing into the game a bit
Did we miss supporters or what?
Dangerous free kick coming from England
Free-kick is blocked
Yellow card for Rice
A slightly nervy start for England
Walker heads it away
Kickoff and we're underway!
Both teams take the knee before kickoff and we're now underway.
Here. We. Go.
National anthems are over!
Good times never seemed so good!
'Southgate has been watching Musiala since he was 10'
Jamal Musiala is with the German team today, but there was always a chance that he could have ended up in Gareth Southgate's squad instead.
His former school coach has revealed that Southgate was always an admirer, having watched the now-Germany starlet since he was a youngster.
Low on Werner's inclusion
Germany boss Joachim Low, speaking to ARD about Timo Werner's inclusion: "We need depth up-front today and Timo Werner offers a lot of qualities there. He has tremendous pace and can hurt defences that way."
Big day coming for the Chelsea man?
England and Germany at Wembley
Today's game will be the 13th meeting between England and Germany at Wembley.
After winning four of the first five, most importantly the 1966 World Cup finale, England haven't won any of the last seven.
A look at the scenes outside of the stadium
Some big names left out of the England XI
No Grealish. No Foden. No Mount. No Sancho, No Rashford.
Southgate will have plenty of firepower on the bench if needed!
Saka joins elite company
By starting today, Bukaya Saka becomes only the third teenager to start a knockout round game for England at a major tournament?
The other two? Wayne Rooney and Michael Owen. Decent company!
Lineups are in!
Welcome to the matchday blog!
As if yesterday wasn't exciting enough, there are two more games on tap today, including one of the most highly-anticipated of the tournament so far.
First up is the main event as England look to finally earn some measure of revenge against their rivals Germany in a clash of heavyweights.
And then, once that's over, there will still be one more game to finish off the Round of 16 as Sweden and Ukraine will look ahead and see potential Cinderella runs if they can earn the win today.
