Turkey So Close
Turkey were so close to the final of Euro 2008 but narrowly missed out to an average Germany team.
Tuncay Sanli was suspended for this game, which saw Turkey have 13 fit players available for the game.
Ugur opened the scoring but Germay equalised after 27 minutes. Klose put Germany 2 - 1 up with just 11 minutes left on the clock. But with just 4 minutes left Semih beat Lehmann at the near post to put Turkey on level terms.
Turkey looked to have taken the game into extra time, which was the very least they deserved, but their campaign ended in heartbreak in the closing moments.
Lahm raided forward and exchanged passes with Hitzlsperger before firing high past Rustu.
- Boro keen on signing former Ajax prodigy
- Boro target League One’s hot star to bolster attaching options
Credit must be given to Turkey for a magnificent display and they deserved so much more.
