Sweden topped the Group E of UEFA EURO 2020 after a 1-0 victory against Slovakia on Friday. The first half between the sides seemed balanced at Russia’s Saint Petersburg Stadium but Sweden largely dictated the match’s tempo in the second half.
In the 76th minute, Sweden were awarded a penalty as Slovakian goalkeeper Martin Dubravka fouled Sweden’s Robin Quaison in the box. Dubravka was booked for the foul. Swedish left winger Emil Forsberg scored a firm penalty kick to break the deadlock in the match, giving a 1-0 lead to his nation.
Sweden currently have 4 points in two matches to lead the Group E.
