Sweden 2 – 3 England

UEFA EUROS 15/06/2012 T Shirt Size Guide


Up until Friday the 15th June 2012, I regarded a Danny Welbeck backheeled winner in an international fixture as likely as unicorns being real or the afterlife existing. Even an England winner seemed far fetched. Up until that point, they hadn’t beaten the Swedes in a competitive game. Ever. As it goes, this was probably the best spectacle of the tournament. Back and forth it went, the two teams trading goals, taking the lead and having a jolly / nightmarish time of it, depending on what minute it was. This result, combined with their loss against co-hosts Ukraine meant Sweden were out. Still battered France in their next match though, didn’t they?
