The Turks were the better side overall, Germany had a stonewall penalty denied only to be levelled out by a howler from the once great goalkeeper Rustu.
Spain or Russia will beat the Germans, I have no doubt.
Lehman lost it when he was at Arsenal.Imo, Germany as you quite rightly suggested were very very lucky not to concede more than 2 goals against a Turkish team, that were consistent and gave it their everything.
Despite having only 5 fully fit players on the bench compared to Germany's, and the team Fatih Terim fielded just made it an even more exciting game, mainly because half of the first team was missing; yet the team that played the crappest came out on top.
Just like the previous two games in the competition, Turkey scored late; but for the first time, not as late as it should've been
As for keepers, well both were rubbish tbh. First of all, Rustu came out 10 yards for a ball he knew he wasn't going to win, yet he came out and was a mile off.
Jens Lehmann is getting old, and his brain is going aswell; because Turkey's second goal was a peach for the striker. Nick it in front of the defender (similar to Germany's first), and the keeper was like, it's mine leave it, oh shite they've scored.
Basic keeping errors, overall great game. Pity about the thunderstorm and losing the coverage; but we had a good time listening to the five live team
hmmm they will need shit loads of "luck" to beat spain imo ofc
Okay, Russia's playing style against Spain can be questionned, but the way Spain played was brilliant. Iker Casillas behind the back four look solid enough, and with Torres up front; he'll be capable of scoring.
We have to remember that Villa is out of the final (injured) so most likely it'll be Daniel Guiza starting up front alongside Torres.
We'll have to see what Arrogones chooses, Xavi and Iniesta or does he replace one of them with the fantastic Fabregas.
He played well enough against Russia to cement his place in the team, we will see on Sunday!
