Euro 2008 is having a very dramatic finale.

 

Before Euro 2008, there were only five games, including finals, in the history of the competition of going into extra time. This past week, four games in the quarter finals have been played. Only the Germany-Portugal game did not go into extra time.

 

All these games have been heart stopping, blood pounding, and edge of the seat games.

 

There were two penalty shootouts, Croatia-Turkey and Spain-Italy.

 

Croatia, the surprise team of the tournament, was knocked out with a 3–1 shootout loss.

 

Spain knocked out the Italian giants. Iker Casillas was the hero as he stopped two of the penalty shots and Fabregas sealed the win with a superbly taken penalty. 

 

Russia defeated the tournament favorite Netherlands with a superb performance, 3–1.

 

Germany knocked out the Portuguese with a fantastic display of teamwork. 

 

It has been a heart stopping week and people everywhere would like to see how far the drama goes as the finale quickly approaches.
