Sweden winger Emil Forsberg scored a double including the second fastest strike in European Championship history before Viktor Claesson’s stoppage-time goal helped the side seal a 3-2 win over Sweden on Wednesday and top Group E heading into the last-16.
Sweden will next face one of the third-placed sides from Groups B, C or D – Finland, Ukraine or the Czech Republic – in Glasgow on June 29.
Spain, which finished second following its 5-0 win over Slovakia in the other Group E match, faces Croatia in Copenhagen a day earlier.
It was a heartbreaking end to Poland’s campaign after the team twice drew level through talismanic skipper Robert Lewandowski, whose 84th minute equaliser for 2-2 gave the side a glimmer of hope.
