Actually, not now after hearing of a couple of their key injuries and a couple suspensions for their next game now. So the Turks will be very depleted. If the Germans lose then they deserve to be banished for international tournaments forever.

Claudius put it pretty well. Teams like Italy, greece and turkey can beat teams like holland, spain with "luck". They just tired you mentally with their style, and then even if they are extremelly inferior, in a corner or in weird play they will score because of your lack of concentration on defense.

But thats REALLY difficicult to happend with germany. It can happend but I doubt it. Germany barely makes mistakes and their offensive efeciency is brutal. They play well when it counts. 3-1 germany.

I have to say that the turkish team is not as bad as the greeks or italians so Im cheering for them. Nihat is one of my favourite attakers.

i dunno waht to think...is this finals gonna be diluted? russia, turkey?

i mean u cant fault those two teams for making it this far...obviously they got talent but talk about failures by dutch, portugal, france...hopefully we can add italy to that list.

Russia more than deserves been there. Today they played better than any team has played in this eurocup.

i dont feel as bad now that england didnt make it...i mean croatia and russia showed why they were forces to be reckoned with getting to as far as quarters and semis respectively.

I totally did not expect this result but wow..i just dont know what to think of russia in the semis and same with turkey...totally deserved but totally unexpected and unsure of how they will fare in the semis...do they play there hearts out as they currently have been doing or do they fold and show why we doubted them from the get go...

ITs definitely going to be an interesting semi....Great for the sport of soccer though with not so popular soccer nations making it far.

well germany, italy and spain are still there. As good as Russia has been though, I doubt they can repeat such a good performance. Spain already beat them. So I can see the winner of tomorrows game getting to the finals.

That wasnt out of bounds, but it wasnt a yellow card neither IMO. it should have been a foul. They didnt call a penalty for Russia in overtime neither.

ya i agree...i didnt see how the ref thought that was a yellow but the ball was def still inbounds.

And that was totally a penalty for russia in the box..agreed there!

The finals should be German vs. Spain/Italy.

I'm routing for your Spain tommorrow Bel!

yeah the good thing of playing against Italy is that everybody cheers for you lol.

There has been a lot of talking between the teams so I expect a tough game. Spain hasnt beat Italy in a official competition in 88 years. But we beat them in a friendly this year. Both teams still remember 94s world cup quarter finals were they beat us with terrible officiating.

I thing this time we are going to win. They dont have Pirlo or Gatusso. The one that creates their "game" and their best defender.
