According to the PHP Manual: Instruction Separation, I think your code should be fine. While semicolons are required for terminating instructions, it shouldn't be in this instance since it's the last instruction and you've used closing tags for PHP which the manual states: "implies a semicolon".

For whatever reason though, the challenge is requiring the use of the semicolon to terminate that instruction explicitly. It's probably not a bad idea anyway to always include it.
