The beginning of the match between Sweden and Spain.

Group D of the 2008 UEFA European Championships is one of four groups of competing nations at UEFA Euro 2008. The first round of matches were played on 10 June, with the final round scheduled for 18 June. All six group matches were played at venues in Austria, in Innsbruck and Salzburg. The group is composed of UEFA Euro 2004 winners and reigning Champions Greece, as well as Sweden, Spain and Russia. Greece, Spain and Russia had all been drawn together in the same group in the previous European Championship.

Following a 4–1 win over Russia in their first game, Spain secured top spot in the group with a 2–1 win over Sweden in their second. Their qualification for the quarter-finals was assured after Russia beat Greece later that day, condemning the title holders to the bottom position in the group. The second quarter-final spot was to be decided by the match between Sweden and Russia, with Sweden only needing to avoid defeat to go through. However, Russia scored a goal in each half to beat Sweden 2–0 and qualify for the quarter-finals. Meanwhile, despite going behind towards the end of the first half, Spain scored two second half goals, one coming three minutes before full time, to become the third team in the tournament to qualify for the quarter-finals with a 100% group stage record.
