What a match! That what I can say about this match. What a dramatic finish of the match. What a display of attacking football. I really enjoyed the match very much. It is about 4 A.M. local time here in Bangladesh and I am still awake to see this match. And I think I am happy that I didn’t miss this match.
Turkey beat Croatia 3-1 on penalties after their Euro 2008 quarter-final finished 1-1 following thrilling extra time. Extra time had finished in dramatic fashion with two goals in the last minute.
Ivan Klasnic headed Croatia in front at the near post after a good run and cross by Luka Modric in the 119th minute. But the real drama was yet to show. Semih Senturk of Turkey equalize with the last kick of the game.
But in the penalty shoot out, Croatia was seems to be confused to me. As a result they lost they penalty shoot-out by 1-3.
Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic missing the target before Turkey’s victory was clinched when Rustu Recber saved from Mladen Petric. Turkey trio Arda Turan, Semih Senturk and Hamit Altintop were all successful with their spot kicks.
