Like many Ukrainians, Sweden coach Erik Hamren was up for most of the night following his team's 2-1 loss to the co-host at the European Championship.

While the home supporters were celebrating in Kiev, Hamren was sitting at the team hotel watching video footage of the game until 4:30 a.m. and trying to pinpoint where things went wrong. With a must-win game against England coming up in just four days, Hamren knows he has precious little time to find answers.

Hamren said on Tuesday that he was surprised and disappointed by the Swedish performance, and that "we had maybe four or five players who played at the level I expected in the first half. The rest didn't."
