The Sweden vs Ukraine live stream is almost here, and it's the final game of the Euro 2020 Round of 16 stage.

Sweden have been one of the unexpected success stories of Euro 2020 so far, topping their group over the favorites Spain in impressive fashion. Ukraine, meanwhile, just squeezed through to the knockout stages, finishing third in Group C. Sweden will be expected to win this game but as this tournament has proven already, anything can happen over 90 minutes. 

The winner here will face England in the quarter-finals on Saturday (July 3) and both sides make changes as they look for the advantage. For Sweden, Dejan Kulusevski comes in up front, instead of Robin Quaison, while Ukraine bring in Serhiy Kryvtsov and Taras Stepanenko.

Here's how they line up:

Sweden: Olsen, Lustig, Lindelof, Danielson, Augustinsson, Sebastian Larsson, Ekdal, Olsson, Forsberg, Kulusevski, Isak.

Ukraine: Bushchan, Karavayev, Kryvtsov, Zabarnyi, Matviyenko, Shaparenko, Stepanenko, Sydorchuk, Yarmolenko, Yaremchuk, Zinchenko.

Sweden vs Ukraine kicks off today (Tuesday, June 29) at 8 p.m. BST (3 p.m. ET / 12 p.m. PT). You can watch the live stream anywhere in the world, for free.
