BBC reports
Ukraine reached the quarter-finals after beating Switzerland on penalties.
The Swiss missed three spotkicks, but Ukraine's Artem Milevskiy, Serghiy Rebrov and Oleg Gusev made no mistake to seal a 3-0 shoot-out victory.

What can I say? Few people, including all four TSN analysts, believed in Ukraine. Yes, it was not an impressive game - no goals, scarce shots, lack of technical skills . And yet, ultimately all that matters is the final outcome - Ukraine has done it!!!
An interesting (and sympathetic to Ukraine) account of the match can be found here.
