Germany 3 - Turkey 2
Wow, there was lightening in Europe tonight - quite literally - as Germany battled tooth and nail against a Turkish said with indomitable will. In the end, it was not enough for Turkey as the fell to the German giants 3 - 2.
The international feed was dropped three times in the second half - having the effect of lighting up message boards all over the internet in an attempt to find a feed or stay abreast of the ongoing action.
The feed went live just in time to see Philipp Lahm celebrating his 90th minute game winning lazer shot which was the crescendo of a brilliant run up the left flank to send Germany in to the finals.
Turkey showed heart and courage and will be missed.
