As a German, I wasn't totally happy with the home teams play.
To win the final vs Spain, they will have to find a higher gear.
Turkey played very well, and was a worthy opponent.
A German friend called me from Berlin, where half a million people watched the game on big screens around the Brandenburg Gate. Berlin has a sizeable Turkish population, with many being German citizens.
Some had one side of their cars decorated in the German, the other in the Turkish colors.
Most impressive to me, after the game, both sides partied together, with no fights.
I was surprised at the crushing defeat of Russia by Spain 0 - 3 today.
Sunday will tell.
