Germany 3:2 Turkey

The Turks have been robbed. A last minute goal by Philip Lamm have given the Germans a win to advance to the Euro 2008 Final on what ESPN considers to be one of the worst semi-final performances ever.

However, the Turks have nothing to hang their head about. They defied expectations, taking the game to the Germans and losing only by sheer bad luck. The game saw three goals in the final 14 minutes of play. The Turks might have gotten a draw and forced extra time if their final free kick had been on target as the German keeper Jens Lehmann had a miserable performance.

Fantastic football all around and I salute the Turks for helping to make this Euro tournament one to watch. Thanks!!!
