England v. Sweden in the Thrilla’ in Ukrainian ManillaPosted by whitecovermagazine
Okay, maybe not completely, entirely, split-right-down-the-middle “even,” but it was pretty close. Look at this stat line, and see for yourself.
This is what happens when one team goes down and then realizes their backs are against the wall and that they have to win to stay alive. And then, this is what happens when the other team who was originally leading realizes the same thing when they go down.

Good thing England gets Rooney back, because most teams who play even with Sweden aren’t winning the Euros.
