Group B winners Croatia and Group A runner ups Turkey will be playing June 19 at Basel in the quarter Finals. Who do u think will win/who do you want to win. I think it will be Croatia 2-1 Turkey.

Well, I want Turkey to win, and I think they have a good chance against a team like Croatia. Croatia have impressed so far in that they topped a group that included Germany. Turkey may not have been playing great football but they have been OK. I think that they will both have a lot of momentum coming into this game and I think 1-0 Turkey would be realistic, goal from Arda Turan.

Hold on, I dont know why everyone is talking about Croatia winning group B. If Croatia lose their last game and Germany win, wouldnt that put Germany through as winners?

Germany ftw. Poland will give it their all and bring the game to Croatia. Germany will show have to dominate in order to secure a good spot in quarters (which means, not portugal), so they'll score goals and we'll see if both teams win or whichever team wins by goal difference.

Actually no. The rules for EURO are different than for the World Cup. Since Croatia has 2 wins and they have already beaten Germany, Germany cannot win the group. Croatia are automatic winners of the group no matter what happens next game. And I think Croatia will win versus Turkey. Turkey are a good side and we better not let our guard down against them. I'm hoping that Croatia will be able to make it to the finals, I know its possible. We can play just as well as any other team in the tournament.

Oh I see, I think it will be a very close game between Croatia and Turkey, It may go to penalties. I hope Turkey win :D Also I think I was the only one who thought Turkey could make it through to the quater finals!

lol how many live updates have you given us so far chicagofirefan?

Anyways, Croatia 2-0. My prediction. So Germany has a chance to redeem themselves. Plus, Turkey is too reliant on their two best players, and that'll be their downfall. Rakitic away!

I would love to see turkey win because my god father played with turkey's coach and most of their backline, and also i hate croatia because they beat germany, but im not to sure that that will happen because turkey is missing their starting goalkeeper.

People who say something cannot be done are often surprised by others doing it.
