ESPN – Ukraine had turned the Netherlands upside down. The team of legend Andrey Shevchenko matched a 2-0 down, but a header from Dumfries quelled the uprising at the Amsterdam Arena, for the Netherlands to win 3-2.
Ukraine had caused a scandal since before starting its participation in Euro 2020 and almost also gives the note for its performance in the field. Those led by Andrey Shevechenko had attracted worldwide attention for their controversial shirt that included the Crimean peninsula and also attracted attention for putting the Netherlands in trouble.
Until the 75th minute, it seemed like a team run game for the Netherlands, as the home team at the Amsterdam Arena easily won 2-0, thanks to a goal from Wijnaldum and another from Weghorst.
Shevchenko’s team changed the story in the last minutes, because at 75 Ukraine reacted with a goal from Yarmolenko, which caused the surprise of even Stekelenburg himself, who could not do anything before the goal of the West Ham player.
The Ukrainian revolution went beyond Yarmolenko’s painting, because in four minutes, the team that fights against Russia to include the Crimean peninsula in its shirt, had the game tied at two goals. The 2-2 was scored by Yaremchuk.
Shevechenko celebrated the brave reaction of his team, although Holland still had one more surprise for the closing of the game.
Dumfries took advantage of the euphoria of the Ukrainians, who were happy for the tie at two, dedicated themselves to looking for more in the Amsterdam Arena and were distracted in defense, enough for a header, after a free kick pass, to become 3- 2 in favor of the Netherlands team.
