Spain vs. Germany should be outstanding tomorrow, but without a doubt, the highlight of the tournament was Turkey.

They started with a comeback win versus the Czech Republic.  A loss and they would have gone home:

The final two goals came in the 80 & 90th minutes, respectively.

In the quarters, they were underdogs vs. Croatia. The teams played a scoreless tie for 117 minutes, and then this happened:

Croatia scored with 3 minutes left seemingly locking the win up. With less than 30 seconds left, Turkey’s goalie launched a 60 yard pass downfield, and the Turkish player controlled it and scored.

In the semis they were huge underdogs to Germany:

Klose’s goal put Germany up 2-1 in the 80th minute. Turkey tied it up in the 86th and then Germany put it away in the 90th. There would be no miracle comeback for the Turks this time.

And other than the play on the pitch, the best part of Euro Cup 2008 was, as it is with any International Soccer Tournament, the Eye-Candy in the stands: http://euro2008girls.com/
