Sweden will face Ukraine in the Round of 16 at Euro 2020 after finishing top of Group E.

Not many people expected Sweden to finish above Spain in Group E, but that’s exactly what they did. Janne Andersson has made them an extremely tricky team to beat, but they’ve also got a lot of exciting talent going forward. Emil Forsberg has been particularly impressive, scoring twice in Sweden’s 3-2 win against Poland on Wednesday. Not only did they finish above Spain, but they finished two points clear having picked up seven points out of a possible nine. They held the Spaniards to a goalless draw in their opening game, and were perhaps unlucky not to nick all three points in the latter stages.

Who do Sweden play next at Euro 2020?

And their reward for finishing top of Group E is a meeting with Ukraine. Similarly to Sweden, not many people expected Ukraine to qualify for the knockout stage of Euro 2020. That being said, they didn’t qualify as comfortably as Sweden. They had to rely on qualifying as one of the best third-placed teams after their defeat a week ago against Ukraine. Fortunately for them, their 2-1 win against North Macedonia was enough to see them qualify with just three points.
