EURO2008: Switzerland Bows Out of Tourney, Loses to Turkey, 1-2

Euro 2008 co-hosts Switzerland was knocked out of the tournament after they lost to Turkey, 1-2. The Swiss had taken the lead during a downpour when a cross slowed down on the drenched field and allowed Hakan Yakin to send the ball in. Yakin missed a chance from the same spot and was punished later on when Semih Senturk headed Turkey's equalizer. Arda Turan then broke Swiss hearts when he cut inside and scored with a goal in injury-time which took a deflection. Videos of the goals below.

1-0 Hakan Yakin 32"

1-1 Semih Senturk 57"

1-2 Arda Turan 90"
