With Sweden U-21s 3-0 up in the game and 3-2 up on aggregate in their UEFA U-21 Championship qualifier, their opponents France only needed one goal to give themselves the lead on away goals. With just four minutes left on the clock French defender Layvin Kurzawa headed in what he presumed would be the decisive goal. So cock-sure was he in fact that he went around mocking the Swedish players with an obnoxious salute.
Of course Sweden went right down the other end and scored through Oscar Lewicki. Then they returned Kurzawa’s salute en masse before going on to win the game and the tie. The cheeky Swedes even posed for a team salute picture in the changing room after the game.
Kurzawa you have been served, Sweden we salute you.
