Ukraine vs Sweden: Team coaches react post-match

In the 1/8 finals of Euro 2020, the Ukraine national football team has defeated the Sweden national team (2:1 extra time). With this result, the Ukrainians advanced to the quarter-finals of the European Championship. In the history of football of independent Ukraine, this happened for the first time. However, Ukraine previously reached the quarter-finals of the 2006 FIFA World Cup. Both the team coaches shared their thoughts on Ukraine vs Sweden last-16 match of the European Championship.

Ukraine coach Andriy Shevchenko

Head coach of Ukraine Andriy Shevchenko spoke out on the victory over Sweden (2-1) in the 1/8 finals of Euro-2020. “We decided to secure our flanks a bit and asked our midfielders to work hard, rebuilt Yarmolenko’s position a bit. We tried to control the game, not always succeeded, but the team fully met my instructions also were not in a hurry, we moved the ball from flank to flank, so we scored the first goal.”

“The two opponents have played very well. An interesting football. No one wanted to lose, so we dragged ourselves to such a drama. I am grateful to all who came to support us. My family, children came. I really wanted to achieve this result. I thank my team for their efforts. For the heroism, they showed.”

Sweden coach Janne Andersson

Sweden head coach Janne Andersson has spoken about the loss to Ukraine (1:2) in the 1/8 finals of Euro 2020. “We had a very good game. We had chances in the second half to settle it. But it went into overtime and after the suspension we just defended. We did it well, so it’s probably my most bitter experience in football to go out like that, right before the end of match time,” Andersson said to UEFA official website.

“Everyone is disappointed, there is silence in the locker room. Just silence. Nothing to say because nothing will help. Time will heal that. That was brutal. Now we fly home and tomorrow our paths will part.”

“Everything ends abruptly, all the good things we’ve built together. We were close to achieving something truly meaningful. But we are leaving with honour because Sweden has not been out of the group since 2004.”
