Ukraine will now face England in Rome.

The Three Lions advanced after a 2-0 win over Germany earlier on Tuesday.

Oleksandr Zinchenko opened the scoring for Ukraine after a great cross from Andriy Yarmolenko, who missed a great chance to extend the lead for his side before Sweden equalized shortly before the break.

In-form Emil Forsberg, who scored his fourth goal at the tournament, shot from distance to beat keeper Georgiy Bushchan and tie things up.
