Beating the Odds on Soccer

November 30, 2010 Football Soccer

It all came to an end in fascinating semi-final match up against the Germans.

That point in the soccer odds competition -and even during the epic loss- the Turkish national side beat the betting odds on soccer at the Euro Cup 2008.

Turkey was without question the most interesting team in the betting odds on soccer competition and the Cinderella of the Euro Cup soccer odds nearly pulled off the biggest story in the history of Euro Cup betting odds on soccer. Still, even in defeat, the Turks gave the sporting world and fans of betting odds on soccer something to talk about for years to come.

Turkey is an especially interesting team within the context of the Euro Cup betting odds on soccer. Many people within continental Europe object to Turkey even being classified in the same soccer odds as other traditional Euro teams like Spain, France, England and so forth. In fact, the issue of Turkey and Europe extends much farther than soccer odds and the betting odds on soccer in the Euro Cup. Turkey has tried very publicly, and very unsuccessfully, to become part of the EU for sometime and has faired much worse than its soccer team in betting odds on soccer at the Euro Cup.

And perhaps that is why this year’s performance in the Euro Cup betting odds on soccer was so fascinating; because for many people watching and playing in the betting odds on soccer competition, the battle was for much more than just a soccer odds title. For many this struggle was simply part of a greater struggle for recognition and there is no doubt that a win in the betting odd on soccer at the Euro this summer would have been huge for Turkey’s battle with the EU.

But betting odds on soccer have no notion of such things and the dream never materialized. In the match versus Germany, the better team won despite the fact that Turkish side -down seven players in the betting odd on soccer competition- nearly pulled off one of the most amazing wins in the Euro Cup betting odds on soccer history.
