Ukraine advances to UEFA knockout phase for first time ever

PanARMENIAN.Net - Ukraine have reached the round of 16 – the knockout phase – at UEFA European Championships 2020 for the first time ever, according to information published by UEFA.

The team will meet Sweden on June 29 in Glasgow, and the winner will face either England or Germany in the semi-finals on July 3.

Ukraine managed to qualify to the knockout stages in the European Championship as one of the best third-placed teams.

In the knockout phase, if a match is level at the end of normal playing time, extra time is played (two periods of 15 minutes each), with each team being allowed to make a sixth substitution. If still tied after extra time, the match is decided by a penalty shoot-out.
