Turkey secured its place at UEFA EURO 2008 after a 1-0 victory versus Bosnia-Herzegovina at Ali Sami Yen Stadium in Istanbul yesterday evening (following shots from the match). However, the win already assured Turkey's climbing to a second place behind Greece qualifying Group C at Norway's expense. The strategy worked as Turkish team held out to pip Norway 2-1 last saturday. Now Turkey boosting bid to qualify for the finals in Austria and Switzerland, from 7 to 29 June 2008. UEFA reveals finals draw seedings, take a peek here.
Soccer-mad Turkey partied on the streets and also avenues on night after the national team beat. Millions being gathered at one-big-heart more watched on television across the country and at home with family -like me- and friends, dining on beer at pubs and take-away pizzas.
The result brought a big cheer to the crowd, and Turkish fans declared themselves happy with the smooth victory. Of course, Turkey will be happier after Final Match:)
Although football is not my interested area, but I like watching the matches if it is World Cup and European Championship. My everytime favorite in football is Italian team. Easy to understand that my heart will beat for two-times -both Turkey and Italy- in EURO2008:)
Mark your agenda! The final of Euro 2008 will be held at the Ernst Happel Stadion in Vienna, Austria on June 29, 2008 Sunday.
