Comments:

Sweden had now lost all of the three games they had played in the knockout stages of the UEFA European Championship finals; also semi-final in 1992 and quarter-final in 2004. Emil Forsberg became the first player to score in three consecutive games at major tournaments for Sweden since Kennet Andersson at the 1994 FIFA World Cup in USA. Aged 36 years and 23 days, Seb Larsson became the oldest player to start a knockout game at a major tournament for Sweden since Gunnar Gren in the FIFA World Cup Final against Brazil in 1958 (37 years and 241 days). Marcus Danielson was initially shown a yellow card after 98 minutes but was upgraded to a red card following a VAR review.

Comments:

This was the first game that Ukraine had played in the knockout stages of the UEFA European Championships finals. Timed at 120 minutes and 30 seconds, Artem Dovbyk's winner became the second-latest goal in a game at UEFA European Championship finals after Turkey's Semih Sentürk against Croatia in the quarter-finals at Euro 2008 (121 minutes and one second). Ukraine had yet to keep a clean sheet in the ten games they had now played at the UEFA European Championship finals.
