Ukraine's 2-1 Comeback Win Left This Swede Feeling Black In The Face

So, yeah, the racism promised to emerge at Euro 2012 in Poland and Ukraine actually did, though in classic 1960's spy drama fashion everyone's blaming the Russians. Sweden had no one to blame but themselves, meanwhile, after a stunning performance by Andriy Shevchenko led Ukraine past the Swedes for a 2-1 win. At least one Swedish fan felt dark—very dark—as the result came to pass.


Update (9:31 a.m.): Reader Fred notes the fan is not a Swede but a Ukrainian, wearing a special scarf made for the occasion—but note the flag of Ukraine on his sleeve. The plot deepens.
