Germany beats Turkey to enter Euro 2008 final

June 26th, 2008 - 2:26 pm ICT by ANI  

London, June 26 (ANI): Left back Philipp Lahm scored a last-gasp winner past Turkish goalie Rustu Recber to send Germany into the Euro 2008 final on Wednesday.
Lahm fired home in the 90th minute to settle a thrilling semi-final against the impressive Turks, and he now believes his country will lift the trophy.
Bastian Schweinsteiger and Miroslav Klose had overturned Ugur Boral’s opener, only for Semih Senturk to stun the Germans with a late leveller.
Yet Lahm had the last word. He said: “This was an extreme match but we’re happy to have reached the final. It shows our amazing belief. I was so pleased to score the winner because I felt I was at fault for Turkey’s equaliser.”
“To go 2-2 down just before the end and then produce the winner, and all in a European Championship semi-final, I can certainly say it’s the most important goal I’ve ever scored.
“I hope we can go on to win the title now.” (ANI)
