    The kind moderator GLIDEFAN gave me the "go code" for a brand new EURO2008 Thread after the other one was locked because of misbehaviour by a user..

    He's also warning all of us that any more flaming and bashing will be dealt with in a harsher manner with dire consequences.

    it's going to be in impressive match for sure, both teams are great. :eyebrows:

    edit: TURKEY vs CROATIA started! .. the turkish trainer needs a PAXIL or some pill he's extremely nervous looks about to beat someone. lol

    edit2: meh what a terrible 1st half both teams were just running and wasting balls, Croatia did slightly more and was close to score twice, lets see how it fares with the 2nd half.

    edit 3: OMG at last second goal from Turkey! WOW. :nerd:

    congratulations to TURKEY.

    Yeah, they kind of make last minute survival goal like their previous match.

    can not wait on the semifinal when they meet Germany

    next game : Russia vs Netheland

    I hope the dutches still get the spirit like in their group matches. kind of entertaining, the total voetball style :D.. especially when they beat italy and france :)

    I can't believe it either, the end to that match was incredible...

    So unhappy that Croatia went out on penalties though :(

    Very well done to Turkey though, they know how to come back in style :)

    So disgusted with Croatia losing like that.. the more deserving team and Turkey with a flukey finish. Not fair at all :(

    Disagree. If you can't close out a match I can't say you deserve to win. Croatia were the favorites yes. More deserving of the win?I hardly think so. I like Turkey's chance against the Germans more than I liked it against the Croatians. Still even if Turkey gets stopped in its tracks they are the "Comeback Kings" of this tournament.

    Good luck to all the final four teams and lets see some fantastic semi-finals.

    Remember that it was the Croatians that dismantled Germany. After this match I am almost starting to believe. I at least like our chances against Germany more than I did against Croatia. But Germany's win over Portugal also show just how strong a side they really are.

    Russia Holland I reckon will be the match of the tournament. It'll be all about who can capitalise on opportunity more. I give the edge to Holland, they are just playing far too good for them not to be considered the best team left, such beautiful football. But Russia won't go down quietly and as Turkey showed anything can happen.

    i'm sorry that you team lost, if you want the truth both teams played a terrible 1st half, an average 2nd half and some really good extra time, in the end both players were quite inaccurate wasting balls all over the place, there was no better team i'd say both were even on the field with Turkish players having a much more (much much more) powerful shots (still unaccurate from afar though), Croatia was more tactical but lost possession of the ball too often, losing by penaty shots is not as bad as losing during the match because its more like a lottery than pure skills, so in that sense Croatia also won the match even if they lost. ;)

    have a cookie mate :eyebrows:

    well well, only a couple of hours left for what i would define as a must-watch match :p i apologize to everyone already (and you know how much i like you WhiteLightning) but i'm going to cheer for Russia because Holland is the best team in the tournament and it would a shocker if Russia wins the match.

    i like surprises, the chair, beer and cookies are all ready for the match. :D

    I'm with you WhiteLightning, some of my ancestors were from Holland (I'm a Yank), and I always loved their style. Johann Cruyff was god-like back in the day. Go Orange!
