Sweden – Slovakia: 1-0 European Championships 2021. Final result and commentary on the match

Thank you for joining us in the Sweden-Slovakia live broadcast. Next meeting, Croatia-Czech Republic, at 6 pm, valid for the second round of group D of EURO2020.17:23

A penalty by Forsberg, at 32 ‘of the second half, pushes Sweden with arrogance towards the Round of 16. After the defensive match in the debut match against Spain (0-0), Andersson’s national team demonstrated that they can also play in attack by overcoming Hamsik’s Slovakia with merit and winning their first success at EURO2020 and the top of group E After a stingy first half of emotions and the two teams with the handbrake on, the match was ignited in the second half. The Scandinavians are more dangerous first with Augustinsson and Danielson and then with Isak who has the most sensational action on his head, but does not frame the mirror of the Slovak goal. Sterile ball possession and few offensive ideas, however, for Tarkovic’s men who have never seriously worried Robin Olsen. The wait is now rising for the match scheduled between Spain and Poland, scheduled for June 19, at 9 pm.17:21

First 45 minutes of play that go to the archive without particular emotions. After the first 20 minutes in which the Scandinavian team seemed to be in control of the game, Slovakia woke up from their torpor trying to make their way through the tight yellow and blue shirts, but without worrying too much Olsen. At the end of the first fraction there are only two corners on each side and a shot in the mirror: that of Larsson after 3 ‘from the kick-off.15:51

Slovakia’s timid attempt at a reaction, with a cross from Kucka, but Danielson opposes in the area with his chest.15:31

Risk for Slovakia. Augustinsson bowl in the middle for Berg who raises a bell tower and then tries the gore on the fallout of the ball, Dubravka freaks out as he can.15:29

Teams in the field. The notes of the national anthems spread in the air. It’s time for Slovakia’s ‘Nad Tatrou sa blýska’, followed by Sweden’s ‘Du gamla, du fria’. About 17,000 spectators in the stands.14:56

The German whistle Daniel Siebert, assisted by fellow countrymen Jan Seidel and Rafael Foltyn, as assistants, and Marco Fritz in the VAR room will direct Sweden-Slovakia; fourth referee, however, the Bulgarian Georgi Kabakov.14:42

SLOVAKIA (4-2-3-1): Dubravka; Pekarik, Satka, Skriniar, Hubocan; Kucka, Hrosovsky; Koscelnik, Hamsik, Mak; Duda. All. Tarkovic.14:39

SWEDEN (4-4-2): Olsen; Lustig, Lindelof, Danielson, Augustinsson; S. Larsson, Olsson, Ekdal, Forsberg; Isaac, Berg. All. Anderson.14:39

Let’s now take a look at how Andersson and Tarkovic arrange their respective teams on the pitch. There is no news in the starting eleven of Sweden, which offers the same formation capable of breaking the draw against Spain, with Isak and Berg in attack, Larsson and Forberg offensive wards, and Lindelöf leading the defense. Two changes, however, between Slovakia’s squads with respect to the debut match against Poland: Hrosovsky, in place of Hromada, teaming up with Kucka in midfield; Koscelnik, preferred to Haraslin, will instead act on the flanks with Mak in the trio formed with the untouchable Hamsik behind Duda.16:10

Tantalizing match for statistics. Slovakia would go through if they beat Sweden, and would take the lone top of the group if they win today and Spain do not go beyond a draw in the match against Poland. The Swedes, on the other hand, like the Iberian national team, cannot count on the certainty of first or second place, nor be eliminated after the verdicts of this second day.14:35

Sweden comes to the appointment after closing the debut match against Spain at 0-0, in Seville. Slovakia, on the other hand, is galvanized by the 2-1 success of Lewandowski and Zielinski against Poland.14:33
