Nervous win thrills Low

Published Add your comment

Germany coach Joachim Low admitted his side were "trembling" before they finally saw off gutsy Turkey to reach the final of Euro 2008.

Philipp Lahm secured a 3-2 victory for the Germans with a 90th-minute winner in a pulsating last-four clash in Basle, just when it looked like Turkey forward Semih Senturk´s strike four minutes earlier was going to take the match into extra time.

Low said: " At the end, we were trembling. Turkey never give up. We knew they would be dangerous in the closing minutes - they have shown that before this tournament - but my team were able to come back."
