The Germans put an end to their thrilling race through the Euro 2008 tournament. In a 3-2 cliffhanger of a semifinal, the Turkish team was eliminated. After their lackluster opening match against Portugal, the Turks were easily the most exciting team playing. In four straight games, they managed heart-stopping comebacks, including the semifinal. But the sheer number of injured and suspended players took its toll.
For anyone who believes that soccer (that is, football) is boring, make this "note to self": review the Turkish performance in Euro 2008.
