Severely depleted Turkey will take on Germany in Basel tonight in the first Euro 2008 semi-final. The Turks may be decimated by injuries and suspensions, yet they are highly motivated to pull off another stunning result. In the other semi-final, Guus Hiddink's Russia will meet Spain in Vienna tomorrow night.
Fighting spirit
Injury and suspension ravaged Turkey go into the semi-final match as underdogs, but coach Fatih Terim's team will always show fighting spirit, having already staged three amazing comebacks to reach the semi-finals. They scored the winning goal against Switzerland two minutes from time and secured victory against the Czech Republic in the closing stages as well. They equalised against Croatia with virtually the last kick of the quarter-final game in the 119th minute before they went on to win the penalty shootout. Germany reached the semi-finals put in an impressive performance against Portugal.
