Poland exit from Euro 2020 after loss to Sweden

Substitute Viktor Claesson scored a 93rd-minute winner for Sweden to knock Poland, who had come back from 2-0 down, out of Euro 2020.

Sweden netted their first goal from open play at Euro 2020 just 82 seconds into their final group game following Emil Forsberg’s composed angled finish in St Petersburg.

The RB Leipzig midfielder doubled the lead with a first-time shot – his third goal at the tournament – before Robert Lewandowski, who had earlier missed a golden chance, produced a quality arrowed finish to give Poland hope.

Lewandowski hit an 84th-minute equaliser to give hope to Poland, who needed to win to advance, but they were undone by Claesson’s late winner.

In a captivating game, captain Lewandowski was guilty of an incredible miss at 0-0.
