Turkey Beats  Belgium  In EURO 2012 Qualifying Match... 3-2

Belgium started and Turkey  put the finisihing touches in EURO 2012 qualifying match on Tuesday night In Istanbul Turkey.

 

A late goal  from Arda Turan helped Turkey  3-2 win over Belgium ....

 

Turkey'  first attack on Belgium came on the 16th minute  but, Tuncay Sanli missed a header!

 

 Belgium scored the first goal of the match in the 28th minute  by Daniel Van Buyten Thanks to big mistake by Turkish young keeper Onur KIvrak.

 

The first half of the match ended with   Turkey being down one goal against Belgium.

 

But, things did change for Hiddink's Turkey  in the second half....

 

After pep talk by Hiddink at the half and bring in super sub Semih Senturk in to the match made a huge difference....

 

In the very early minutes of the second half in the 48th minute  Hamit Altintop  even the scored ...

 

Than super sub Semih Senturk , scored the second goal in the 66th minute on a Hamit Altintop's cross

 

But,  Belgium came right back to tie the match in  the 69th minute again huge mistake by Turkish keeper Onur Kivrak. 

 

Daniel Van Buyten  scored his and his teams second  goal of the match...

 

But. like I said. in the beginning my article , in the 78th minute of the match, Arda Turan's goal  gave Turks the lead 3-2..

 

Belgium was man down after the 66th minute of match when   Vincent Kompany received his second yellow card of the match...

 

HIddink's new journey with Turkey started back to back two wins in the  Euro 2012 qualifying campaign .

 

 After Germany, Turkey is the second place with same points in the Group A

 

Belgium after suffering another loss , they are pointless in the group!

 

This is good thing for Turkey....

 

Next up  for Turkey is  Germany...

 

This will be huge  match for both teams....

As we all know Germany has two German born Turkish players ....Mesut Ozil and  Serdar Tasci.

 

Lastly, Hiddink is trying to change some things in Turkey...

 

First mentally of players and getting them ready to  the next big level.

 

The question is  will they keep listening the world famous coach Guus Hidink?

 

The reason why I say that, there are still huge problems on the defense and  in the goal....

 

The crosses are huge thread for Turkish National team...

If we remember the two goals that were scored by Belgium were on crosses!

 

Lastly,  If you want to win the matches you have to have experience goalkeepers...

Turkey might not be lucky as they were against Belgium in every match!

 

It was good win but , like Hiddink said , it was not that pleasant!
