Vine: The entire Sweden under-21 team brilliantly trolled a French player who prematurely taunted them last night
Karma, as French defender Layvin Kurzawa discovered last night, is a bitch.
Last night, France and Sweden contested the second leg of a play-off to decide who would progress to the Euro 2015 under-21 tournament next summer and with France leading 2-0 from the first leg, they were hot favourites to finish the job and go through.
Sweden, however, had other ideas and took a 3-0 lead with only 20 minutes to go, a scoreline that looked as if it was going to put them through until Kurzawa netted for France with four minutes left to put them back in the driving seat on away goals.
Thinking that his goal was going to finally settle matters, Kurzawa approached John Guidetti (on loan at Celtic from Manchester City) and delivered a gesture that quite clearly implied ‘see you later’ with Sweden seemingly going out of the competition and France going through.
It took only two minutes for Kurzawa to get his comeuppance, however, as Oscar Lewicki struck a late effort to hand the initiative back to Sweden and when the final whistle blew and guaranteed their progression to next summer’s tournament, they weren’t about to pass up the chance to rub it in Kurzawa's face.
