In the Euro, Turkey is avoided by the national team on the alternative path – Croatia was shocked by Wales!


A triumph for her Turkey!

As the present data have it, therefore, the National will face on the alternative path (if it does not pass directly through the group) in the semi-final Kazakhstan (21/3, Opap Arena) and in the final Georgia or Luxembourg (26/3, neutral venue). These, if the Kazakhstan he doesn’t… perform a miracle and qualify directly, which will bring him on the road to the National Championship Luxembourg in the semi-finals.

In the other match of the group, Wales shocked her Croatianwhich he defeated 2-1 thanks to his two goals Harry Wilson.

If in the two remaining matches with Armenia and Turkey they make a better or equal harvest than the Croats, the Welsh people will qualify for the Euro, leaving out his team Zlatko Dalic!

The matches

In the Cardiff match, Wales they were more active from the beginning of the match, however, they were unable to threaten Livakovic’s home goal despite often having opportunities. The first half went by without anything special, however very early in the second o Harry Wilson moved on the back of the defense, beat him in speed Domagoi Vida and passed the ball over its goalkeeper Croatia for 1-0.

Only 13 minutes had passed since the goal, for the same player to come and make it 2-0. After his excellent cross Daniel JamesWilson was again first to the ball and with a beautiful header he left no room for Livakovic, giving a winning lead to Wales. The Croats were desperate for an answer, and they found it with a header Mario Pasalic, which reduced to 2-1 in the 75th minute. Zlatko Dalic’s side began to put … unbearable pressure on the Welsh, constantly threatening to equalise.

In Iconium, Turkey pressed from the first minute, with the help of the home team, for the goal, which it found in the 24th minute with Yunus Agyoun. However, he was ruled offside earlier in the period, so the goal was disallowed. The Turkish midfielder, however, had not said his last word, since in the 58th minute he sent the ball into the net with a one-piece volley, putting the hosts ahead.

From then on, Turkey tried to put the game away, but in the 77th minute they were threatened by a header Ilkaunieks which ended up in the horizontal beam! This missed opportunity doomed them Latvianswho conceded a second goal in the 83rd minute with Cenk Tosun who had gone through as a substitute, which effectively sealed the victory for the home team. The final score was made in the 87th minute Kerem Aktirkoglou and in 92′ Tosun again, signing her triumph Turkeywhich finally passed to the Euro!
