Announcer for Czech v Turkey: 'hearts are pounding... nerves are being shredded!!!!'

2135: GOAL Turkey 2-2 Czech Republic
You will not believe it. Petr Cech produces the goalkeeping howler of the tournament, spilling Hamit Altintop's cross in the most un-Petr Cech-like fashion and Nihat is on hand to tap into an empty net. This tournament. This remarkable tournament.

"how remarkable is that... of all the goalkeepers in the world, you would never have thought it would happen to one of THE very best..."

2137: GOAL Turkey 3-2 Czech Republic
One of the most remarkable finishes to a game you will ever see. Nihat looks miles offside but he's not, the Czechs have got it all wrong and he finishes in the most amazing way, crashing a brilliant right-foot curler in off the underside of the crossbar from 22 yards to give poor, poor Petr Cech no chance whatsoever. I just don't believe this.

2139: "Oh my giddy aunt."

I know. I'm shaking.

Oh my giddy aunt indeed. Spectacular finish - spectacular game - best football i've ever seen.
