Turkey hits a comeback turkey

(you know how in bowling, if you get three strikes in a row, they call it turkey? Yeah, I was trying to be punny)

The comeback kids of this Euro Cup, a Turkey team nobody thought would make past the first round, have just beaten 5-1 favored Croatia after going to penalty kicks after a last second tying goal at the end of the second overtime period. It was one of the best finishes I’ve ever seen.

I do feel bad for Croatia, not necessarily because they lost, but really just because they fell apart so completely in PKs.

Anyway, I’ll put up some video for those who missed it, as soon as they become available (it ended no more than 10 minutes ago)

tl;dr God, I love an underdog story!
