Germany entered the final of Euro 2008, beating Turkey in a gripping seminfinal in Basel.

The two sides were locked in at 2-2 in the final minute when Philipp Lahm scored Germany's third goal and settled matters.

Only minutes before, Ugur Boral's sensational strike in the 86th minute had helped Turkey equalise, and brought them back into the game late like they had done so many times in the tournament.

However, Lahm's strike shattered Turkey's dreams of a Euro final in the 90th minute.

Germany will now play the winner of the second semifinal between Spain and Russia to be played on Friday.
