Well, I didn't see it live, so I can't be too upset, but How bad was it for the time added on.

I read that the ref allowed the game to go 2 minutes past 120 minutes...Then Turkey equalized...

Bilic is supposedly enraged!?
I am glad I didn't turn the TV off. What a finish.

I don't think the game went OT but the Croatian coach wanted to make a sub no doubt like I would have as a coach to kill the clock but the ref played the game on as he have should have.

The late Turkey goal was a cracker of a shot that was unstoppable but preventable and the Croats have only themselves to blame for not playing like they wanted to win before penos.

The Croatians looked beat before the penos judging from how they were sprawled all over the place - it's no wonder they didn't missed the net. The Turks on the other hand looked fired up and judging from 3 nice goals they were focused.

Wow...... What a fkcued up game. First off, good game by the Turks, they did what they had to do, and had some great chances to score in regulation. Our guys..... well they seem to play like the Canucks. Play shitty teams, and lose. Play the big teams and win. WTF.... :mad:

Olic should have buried teh one he hit the crossbar in early on. How does a goalscorer miss that? Fine he ran his ass off through out the tourney, but that's all he can do. Head down and run up and down the sidelines. Was never a fan of his. Very impressed with Pranjic and Simunic in the back. Srna's free kick was spot on. But the keeper was on his game and came up when he had too. Other than that i found teh game very boring. And then the final 3 minutes from high to low for one team and low to high for the other.

PK's..... I had a feeling we were going to lose. How do you miss the net that bad? Oh well they still did well in the tournament and i'm always proud to be Croat! Bilic is a great coach and i'm sure the WC team will be just as good and hopefully a bit better.

Very happy for Klasnic who stepped up! Tough last game for Niko Kovac who retires from the national team after this game.

Jebote Kol'ko nas ima!!! :D

PS As for Bilic running on to the field in celebration after the goal. I'm sure any other coach would have done the same. Just show's how much heart he has for his team and country!!

Go Turkey!!! :eek:

........................Turkey definately deserved the win. Never say die. I told my dad who was sitting beside me in the pub surrounded by cheers after Croatia scored, I said dad it's not over yet I had a bad feeling in my gut and Turkey pulled it off. As a keeper myself, I wondered how a shot like that got off with three Croats around him in the dying seconds over a match. It was a rocket but he should have never got the shot off.

Cheers to Turkey!

Yes, three more out with Cards now and they only had 15? to start the game today.... tough times.....
Weird thing about this, here's a something from Euro 2008 blog, and it makes me wonder why Turkey are in such trouble

I dare say, this UEFA clan is getting a bit more reasonable under Michele Platini.

The first item they tackled was the yellow card issue. Previously yellow cards were wiped after the group stage only, meaning if a player picked up a warning in the quarterfinal and semifinal, it’d be no go for the final. Now, yellow card slates are wiped clean after the group stage and quarterfinals. So the only way a player can possibly miss the final is to be suspended or sent off in the semifinal.

Any coach? I didnt see the World Cup winning Coach Marcelo Lippi do that when Grosso scored in the 118th minute. But im sure he would have if it was the 119th minute.
