Four Minutes

Four minutes, that's the amount of time needed by Turki to inverse the situation and grab one more ticket to the next round over Czech. Two goal from Nihat separates the two and of course makes one of them have to leave the tournament earlier. The other match is only for formality, as Portugal has makes their way to the next round in the previous match.

Nevertheless, it's a big win for Swiss as a host and also a farewell party for their coach, Jakob Kuhn, which will be replaced by Ottmar Hitzfeld after this tournament.

Back to Turki and Czech. It reminds me of Manchester United who took the 1999 UEFA Champion's trophy by 2-1 over Bayern Muenchen when late goal from Teddy Sheringham and also Ole Gunnar Solksjaer in less than two minutes make their dream (treble) come true.

Tomorrow, one more ticket will be given to one of the last three members in group B, where Germany, Austria, and Polandia has a chance to do that. Kroasia already grabbed the ticket.
