Turkey with their turn come from behind win!!! Holycrap! They score within seconds of the end of overtime to tie the game and go into penalties, then win the penalties!

:w:

Poor Croatians.


Yeah I loved those last moments, it made up for watching no goals for such a long time.

Turkey - Croatia was almost like one of those American movies where the team is near hopeless for 120 minutes and then scores in the very last second while the referee has the whistle on his lips ready to end the match.

Unbelievable.


Yeah that's why it's sometimes fun to support the one people think will lose haha.

I'm just not sure that russia have that kind of gamein them again, plus the spanish are a much more technical side than the dutch, and won't get caught out at the back as easily - at least I don't think so.

If it's a spain-germany final, my points are safe
but that's still a fairly big IF.

Well obviously, I'm tipping germany to win tonight, ut I don't think it'll be as easy as people think.

The turks and the germans have a lot of history between them and germany has quite a large turkish population, so I expect the turks to be wellup for it


That said. germany SHOULD have too much for them - especially as the turks have so many players out injured or suspended.

3-1 to germany

After listening to the 1st half (can't see it because I'm at work) I can only think.. Wow!!! Must be a beautiful attacking game. And Turkey has really surprised me that they are attacking so much and that they have scored first.

Turkey outshot Germany 15-3 in the first half!!!
9 shots on goal, while Germany only had 1. Well if Germany wants to win this, they'll have to step up their game bigtime.

Germany Scores!!! Up 3-2. Now I think this is really it for Turkey.

Edit: Germany wins with the same score.

That was so sad, Turkey deserved to win in my opinion. That is what I call football, great game!! I really enjoyed that game, except for the storm problems with the feed.

I disagree. Turkey didn't deserve to win.

The play was pretty even throughout the game. Turkey played well and almost got it into extra time. But, Lehman did not play well in the German goal and arguably should have stopped both Turkey goals. And, Germany didn't get the call on a penalty that all the announcers agreed was in the box and should have been a penalty.

Both Schweinsteiger's goal and Lahm's winning goal were excellent goals. Even Klose's header was no chance for the Turkish goalie.

Most of those shots were weak and no trouble, even for Lehman, who did not have a good game.

It's tough being right all the time




So my 2 picks are in the final - I can't lose


Great game played by spain, and I really hope they can carry that form into the final.

I think they are technically better than germany, but will have to cope with the hard running and closing down of the germans.

I'm hoping the final will be a triumph of skill over endeavour.

Spain is my pick for the final, but I have to admit that's my heart rather than my head.

Well.. We'll see who wins in the final. I think it will be a great one.


Like you said. Spain is more technical than Germany, but Germany is more experienced in big international games.

Congratulations Budski!

I have just recovered from the shock that Holland lost their match last Saturday. Although, very much deserved, I didn't expect Holland to play this crappy. That Russia played very well should be said too.

Spain - Germany is gonna be a great final. I hope Spain will win the tournament, but my feeling says it will be Germany.

you know as they say:

“Soccer is a game for 22 people that run around, play the ball, and one referee who makes a slew of mistakes, and in the end Germany always wins”.

:w: Deutschland vor, noch ein Tor :w:

right the time draws near

now around 2 hours to go and hopefully ballack will be able to play despite of his injury

Never heard about the Ballack injury. What's wrong with him?

Go Germany! They can win without him.


edit: Ballack's in. Doesn't look like he's hurting.
