Euro 2008 Semi Final--Germany v. Turkey

At halftime, it is 1-1. Turkey have been doing what they needed to do, taking it to the Germans. Hats off to the Turks, they really do not know the meaning of the word quit.

Turkey has started the match with only three fully fit subs and a couple of key players serving suspsensions for yellow card accumulations. One of the three subs is the reserve goalkeeper who, if he comes on would come on as a field player. The Turkish Manager probably told his team to go for it and do what they do best, take the game to the opposing side. The Turks have had the majority of possession and the majority of shots with 14 shots, 10 of which have been on frame. Clearly the Turks are playing well above what everyone thought they could.

Can't wait for the remainder of the game.
