Ukraine hero Dovbyk's last-gasp finish the latest game-winning goal in Euros history

Last Updated

Ukraine forward Artem Dovbyk's game-winning goal against Sweden on Tuesday made history as the latest winner scored in European Championship history. 

Ukraine took down Sweden 2-1 in Tuesday's last-16 clash, with the two sides trading goals in 90 minutes as 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 finally broke down their 10-man opponents with just minutes left in extra time.

A late winner

Dovbyk's goal, which came from a stunning Zinchenko cross, was scored in the 121st minute, making it one of the latest scored in the competition's history.

Timed at 120:37, the goal was the second-latest ever scored at the Euros, behind only Semih Senturk's goal against Croatia in 2008, which hit the back of the net at 121:01.

Tuesday's goal was, however, the latest match-winning finish in Euros history, overtaking France's Michel Platini's game-winner against Portugal in 1984, which came at the 118:53 mark.
