Emil Forsberg, the new Sweden star, carried his side to the quarter-finals, as he scored the only goal of the match against Switzerland (1-0).
Forsberg’s decided the future of both sides when he scored the winning goal at the 66th-minute, in St Petersburg. At the post-match press conference, the 26-year-old revealed how happy he was for advancing with his teammates in the tournament.
“It just means so much to me that we managed to win again in such an extraordinary way. We didn’t give Switzerland many chances at all”, Forsberg sais as stated in BT Sport.
“To see what we’re achieving together, it just brings tears to my eyes and makes me so proud. It is pushing us on to want to achieve more.”
Many favorite teams, as Spain, Portugal and Germany, have already been eliminated from the tournament. Sweden has come further than some were expecting.
“If we get everything right, we know we can be really good both in defence and attack. We’re in the quarter-finals now and that’s proof that we’re doing something very well”, Forsberg concluded.
