Euro 2020: Sweden boast last 16 hopes with lone goal victory over Slovakia

Sweden’s hopes of qualifying for the last 16 at Euro 2020 got some boast thanks to Emil Forsberg’s second-half penalty which secured victory for the Swedes against Slovakia in St Petersburg.

RB Leipzig’s Forsberg converted from the spot 13 minutes to stoppage time, after substitute, Robin Quaison was fouled by goalkeeper Martin Dubravka.

Slovakia could have secured their progress to the knockout stages with a win, but the defeat means, Sweden now lead Group E with four points, one point ahead of Slovakia who face Spain in their final match.

Slovakia will now eagerly keep a watch on the other Group E game between Spain and Poland on Saturday, with hopes that the result will favour them, in some way. 

The final round of Group E games take place on Wednesday with Slovakia up against Spain, and Sweden against Poland.
