Engvall's Sweden held by Poland

Gustav Engvall came off the bench for Sweden in their UEFA European Under-21 Championship match with Poland on Monday night, which ended in a draw.

Currently on loan at Djurgarden, the 21-year-old was introduced in the 69th minute of Sweden’s second group match.

Lukasz Moneta fired the Poles into an early lead, but Carlon Stranberg’s close range header canceled out the attacker’s strike nine minutes from the break.

Five minutes later, Jacob Larsson reacted quickest at a corner to head the holders of the competition into a half-time lead.

In a dramatic end to the game, Dawid Kownacki stepped up to slot home from the spot in stoppage time to rescue a valuable point for Poland.

Engvall’s Sweden will face Slovakia on Friday while the tournament hosts go up against England, with all four teams from Group A still able to progress heading into the final round of fixtures.
