Two surprises, in the case to Croatia is a nice surprise, the guys are playing very good, is a "compact" team that play a effective footbal. In Turkey case, well i dont like the way that play and i dont think that have tools to make something versus Croatia.

Croatia-Turkey-> Croatia.

Yup, Croatia should win this. But don't count out Turkey easily.

How is Croatia a surprise? They were clear favourites to go through...

I hope Turkey wins just because of those gay Fenerbahce fans that trolled our forums for months saying they were going to sign Adriano lol

Wow. That's a determination alright.

To score a goal, after this(a goal in 118th), and in last second. Wow.

20 Jun 08, 21:30
Got to love this game.

118th minute and you're down 1-0. Last minute, last seconds, and you score a decent goal. Then win in shoot-out and you're through to the semis. Unbelievable.

You got to love football.

Started boring and strange (1 offside wtf?) and turned out to be really good at the end. As you said Luka you got to love football.

Everything can happen. Highly impressed by the determination of the Turks. I hope they'll at least come 3rd.

Wow, it started nicely, but the game got so boring. I dont mind seeing 0-0 draws if tactics are involved. But this had to be one of the worst games I have ever seen. I slept through out the second half.
Then the drama in extra. 119th minute. Rustu makes a blunder, and Croats score. They are celebrating, no way Turks can come back now. One thing they did wrong was not kick the ball forward.
Turks get a free kick in their own half. Rustu comes to take it. They are afraid the final whistle may go before they could take the kick. Rustu lobs in up high, into the Croat penalty area. Croatain defenders are already celebrating, and it falls to the turkish guy, who scores, with the last kick of the game.!!!! Wow, just wow.

On the game play, Croats probably deserved to go, but Turks had much more determination.
And holy shit they have big balls. The tournament should have been over so long ago. 93rd minute, they find a goal against Swiss. In 15 minutes they find 3 goals against Czech's to go through, and now this.

Forgot to write about the croatia.

They played a good game(maybe a little worse than what they played in the group), but still were slightly better than Turkay througout the game(the bar).

But it's the part of the game, someone has to loose, and it was a very close tie with Turkey, who is also a decent team, amazingly determined(they scored in 93rd minute with Swiss, then scored 3 goles in 15 minutes with Czech, and now this).

Croatia can't be very down. Thye played to win, and they had their chances, they didn't choke, but were a little unfortunate. I think they could reach semis, but it would be very hard to go to the final I think.

Turkey on the other hand showed amazing determination from the first minute of extra time. They literaly have eaten the grass, they were running with all they had left, and they looked a lot more than the Croats, the side, that wants to progress. And this amazing comeback.

I mean you concede in 2 minutes from the end of the extra time, and you still are trying to win with everything you got. Most of the teams would probably just lay down in that moment and start crying. The pens were just formality. Turkey was stuned(in a good way) by the come-back, and Croatia was almost devastated.

So congrats to the Croatia for showing a good football in those championship, but someone has to loose, and Croatia can be proud with the way they've lost it(I mean this in a good way, like Jose said recently).

But no matter who would progress, I think Germany is already one foot in the final.

Turks must be feeling great. Two incredible comebacks in the last two. Regardless of how bad they'll get beat by Germany (and it's gonna be rough with all those injuries/suspensions for the Turks) they should be proud of how well they've done. Shame about Croatia because they were the better team. Slaven Bilic is one cool dude. :cool:

What a game mates...

Football is life!!!

Turkey goes to final. I bet :)

21 Jun 08, 02:56
Croatia makes a good job but that wasnt enough, the two youngstars take the penalties and make mistakes, thats is a shame...abour turkey i dont them style i prefer germany over them to the final.

21 Jun 08, 09:35
Unbelievable.. sad.. unlucky.. I hope God gives us back sometimes.. This can only happen to us.. no words.. I'm devastated..

21 Jun 08, 09:58
I really feel sorry for the Croatian players,this was harsh..I mean they went from winning to losing everything in seconds..Broken down towards the end...

I thought Turkey would win when Croatia lost chance after chance,but there was no way anyone could have predicted Turkey coming back after the Croatian goal...

Congrats to Turkey,hardluck Croatia
