The Euro 2008 is the new fever in Europe. I am feeling it here in Berlin everywhere. Almost all shops are offering goods with Euro 2008 memorabilia and competitions. Some people are carrying their country's flags in cars. The pubs and restaurants have placed big screens for fans who flock there during the match. The streets become empty during a match. It is a festive environment.
And nothing more joyous can be for the Turkish fans who yesterday pulled out a thrilling last minute victory against Czech Republic (3:2) after being 0:2 down. The millions of Turkish immigrants in Germany celebrated in style. In Berlin Kurfurstendamm the party went on till dawn.
Today is an important match for Germany. They must win against host Austria to go to the next round. The other match will be between Croatia and Poland. Their match will also make a difference on who will qualify for the quarter final.
The tournament is taking place in Switzerland and Austria from 7-29 June 2008 and being aired live in many countries throughout the world. We were able to watch the tournament in German state TV so far. But since yesterday both the matches of the day are at the same time so only one match is being shown.
That prompted me to find some online links to watch the play online.
