Some quick thoughts from the Czech Republic v Turkey match:

  1. From the radio commentary that was a brilliant game of football. The match had absolutely everything.
  2. Petr Cech mistakes are crazy – they don’t happen too often, but when they do there is big repercussions.
  3. Nihat’s finish to win the match was absolutely superb. Clipped over Cech. In off the the bar. Beautiful.
  4. What does Volkan think he is doing.  Having come back from 2-0 down into the lead why would you push Jan Koller over. Why take the risk of getting yourself sent-off when you are in the lead and about to go through to the next round?
  5. Turkey are never beaten – they seem to need to be really down and out before they play their best football.
