Germany are the first team to qualify for the final of Euro 2008 after a 3-2 win over Turkey in a more than entertaining semi final clash.

The Turks were the stronger side in the first half and got their reward when Ugur Boral opened the score in the 22nd minute. Kazim hit the crossbar – for the second time in the match – but Boral netted in the rebound.

But Germany reacted soon as Bastian Schweinsteiger converted a cross from Podolski just four minutes after the opening goal.

It took until the 79th minute for the scoreline to change as Miroslav Klose took advantage of a mistake by Rüstü and headed home for 2-1.

But the Turks did what they have been doing so often in this tournament, and scored a late equaliser. It was in the 86th minute when Sabri served Semih near the German goal and the latter pushed the ball past Lehmann for 2-2.

Germany did not allow that equaliser to affect them though and showed that their trademark – scoring in the last minutes – is still theirs.

A great German attack in the 90th minute eventually enabled Philipp Lahm to slam the ball into the net and take Germany to the final.

On Sunday in Vienna, Germany will meet either Russia or Spain to decide who is to lift this year’s European trophy.
