Ukraine scored a last-minute winner to secure their place in the quarter-finals

The drama began in extra-time when Swedish defender Marcus Danielson was controversially sent off with the score at 1-1.

Danielson cleared the ball but caught Artem Besedin with his follow-through, leaving the Ukrainian striker with a nasty-looking injury.

Ukraine then made their advantage count as Artem Dovbyk scored a last-minute winner at Hampden Park.

As Sweden tried desperately to get back on level terms, defender Serhiy Kryvtsov won a free-kick to all but end the contest.

The camera then panned to Andersson, who was frustrated with the referee’s decision.
