Croatia vs Turkey

Turkey just don't know when they're beaten do they.


0-0 at Full time.

Croatia score with about 2 minutes left of extra-time. It's all over. Apart from the fact that Turkey equalise with the last kick of the match to make it 1-1 and a Penalty shoot-out. Croatia miss two and a third is saved. Turkey win.

Turkey have only been ahead for TWO minutes in the entire tournament due to their amazing run of last minute goals.

Turkey were 66-1 to win the tournament at the start of Euro2008. Only Austria had lower odds.

They now play Germany in the semi's.


How they'll put together a team with the amount of suspensions due to Yellow/Red cards and injuries will be interesting though.

Slaven Bilic (the Croatian Manager) is one of the best Managers around in my mind though. He's still in his 30's and I reckon he has a fantastic career ahead of him. I hope he Manages a Premiership Club one day. Maybe Arsenal after Arsene Wenger retires/leaves.

Both of the Quarter Finals so far have sprung results that have surprised me. It's Holland vs Russia tomorrow. I previously reckoned Holland would win. Now I have no idea.
