  Euro 2004: Shock exit for Italy
Updated 22 June 2004, 21.52
Italy are out of Euro 2004
Italy, who were tipped to win Euro 2004 by some experts, have been knocked out despite defeating Bulgaria 2-1.

Because of the earlier results in Group C, a 2-2 draw between Denmark and Sweden in the other game was the one result to definitely put Italy out.

And that 2-2 happened when Sweden's Mattias Jonson scored in the 88th minute of their match with the Danes.

Italy also scored in the final minutes, but Jonson's late strike meant that goal counted for nothing.

There was nothing in the game between Sweden and Denmark to suggest the two teams planned a 2-2 draw.

Jon Dahl Tomasson twice put Denmark in front only for Sweden to level twice, through Henrik Larsson's penalty and Jonson.

In the Italian game, Bulgaria took a shock lead with a penalty, but Italy equalised straight after half-time.

They went in front with a great strike from Antonio Cassano, but they are still out of the competition.
