The game saw the real prospect of the first ever penalty shoot-out in a group stage match as both teams had the same points, goals scored, goals conceded coming into the match meaning a draw would’ve seen a penalty shoot out, however Turkey incredibly came from two down to win.

Jan Koller had headed home to give the Czech Republic a 1-0 lead heading into half time and that lead was doubled in the second half through Jaroslav Plasil.

Turkey got one back through Arda Turan and incredibly they were level shortly after as Nihat pounced on a Petr Cech mistake to make it 2-2. With their confidence high the Turks amazingly made it 3-2 again through Nihat with an amazing curling effort.

There was enough time for Turkey keeper Volkan Demirel to be show a red card for pushing Koller, meaning Tuncay Sanli played the final few minutes in goal. Turkey managed to hold on and went through at the Czech’s expense.
