Turkish Delight!

15 06 2008

It has been a European Championship which is setting a precedent! While the Dutch team has lived up to being ‘the brilliant oranje’, Turkey have provided the hijinks of the tournament by winning the last 2 of their three matches in the final minutes of the match!

Today was absolutely fantastic for Turkey. They never looked like they would go through to the quarter finals after the Czechs were 2-0 up after 65 minutes. I had personally given up on seeing a comeback from the Turks but they proved me wrong by scoring in the 75th minute and equalizing late and then going ahead in the final 3 or 4 minutes!

Wow! Thats what the match was. ‘Wow’!!!!

Meanwhile, Switzerland notched up their first win in 26 years,  a pyrrhic victory, against group leaders Portugal. But that was too little too late!

Euro 2008 is turning out to be one of the best football (soccer) tournaments I have witnessed in the last 10 years!
