Portugal through as Turkey beat co-hosts Switzerland
Portugal on Wednesday became the first country to qualify for the quarter-finals of the Euro competition after Turkey beat co-hosts Switzerland with an injury time goal from Turan Arda 2- 1 in their Group A game played in Basle, dpa reported.
A torrential downpour during the game made the pitch practically unplayable, but Murat Yakin gave the home side the lead in the 32nd minute. Substitute Semih Semturk, who came on at half-time, equalized in the 57th minute.
Arda's goal three minutes into injury time killed off any hopes the hosts still had of advancing and kept alive Turkish hopes of qualifying for the next round.
The Portuguese had earlier beaten the Czech Republic 3-1 to move to six points, while the Czechs and Turkey, who will face each other in their last game in Geneva on Sunday have three each. Switzerland has no point after their two games.
