Group A, final day
Co-host Switzerland salvaged a measure of pride with a 2-0 win over one of the tourney favorites, Portugal. It should be noted that the Portuguese squad rested eight starters in advance of their game in the final eight next week. It was also their first win ever in a Euro tournament game.
Switzerland 2 - Portugal 0
Turkey proved the old soccer adage that the riskiest lead is two goals when they came from behind to defeat the Czech Republic 3-2 after trailing 2 -0. It was one of the greatest comebacks ever in a tournament of this caliber as they scored their three goals in the final fifteen minutes of the game.
The win puts Turkey into the final round of eight as the second place team from Group A. They will play the winner of Group B.
Turkey 3 - Czech Republic 2
