That was one of the most thrilling games I've seen in a while. Turkey showed great heart and great technique (what about that last goal?)!

The Yellow Submarine has themselves a keeper in Nihat. Sick match.

there was a bit of the luck element there for Turkey don't you think?

Everything requires a bit of luck. Luck is nothing without drive and application. Someone still had to put in the cross/pass, someone still had to score. Coming from 0-2 down to win 3-2 requires a bit more than just luck.
