Watch Shevchenko and Andersson in an ugly sideline as Sweden manager accuses Ukrainian stars of diving into Euro 2020 game
MANAGERS Andriy Shevchenko and Janne Andersson had a fiery sideline in Ukraine’s last-minute victory over Sweden at Euro 2020.
The Swedish boss appeared to accuse the AC Milan legend’s side of diving into the final moments of the game.
The drama began in extra time when Swedish defender Marcus Danielson was controversially sent off with the score of 1-1.
Danielson cleared the ball but caught up with Artem Besedin with his call, leaving the Ukrainian striker with a nasty injury.
Ukraine then asserted their advantage when Artem Dovbyk scored a game-winning goal in the last minute at Hampden Park.
As Sweden desperately tried to get back on a level playing field, defender Serhiy Kryvtsov won a free kick to end the competition.
The camera then turned to Andersson, who was frustrated with the referee’s decision.
Shevchenko responded to the Swedish boss and had to be held back by the fourth official.

Andersson hit back at the former Chelsea striker by appearing to make a diving gesture.
Shevchenko was then calmed down by his Ukrainian colleagues, perhaps reminding him of their impending victory.
Ukraine reached the quarter-finals of the Euro for the first time in their history following their historic result against Sweden.
They had already competed in 2012 and 2016, without succeeding in breaking out of their group in the two tournaments.
Ukraine gained independence from the Soviet Union in 1991, reaching the World Cup quarter-finals in 2006 – her debut in a major tournament.
Shevchenko’s side will face England in Rome on Saturday for a place in the Euro 2020 semi-finals.
