    • 90' Turkey-Austria is over, by the way. Good win for the home side who go second in Group A for now, although Belgium will regain that spot if they beat the Azeris. My this group is Turkic in nature - Germany, Belgium and Austria all have Turkish-origin players, while the Azeris and Kazakhs have shared ethnic groups with Turkey.
    • 85' Balta fouls Hoffer and Austria have a penalty! Late drama! But Maierhofer misses it!
    • 78' Gokhan makes it two for the hosts and Turkey are home and dry. Two bad results for Austria, whose coach could well be on his way tomorrow!
    • 58' What a miss by Burek Yilmaz! Heading over from a few yards after a great cross from Arda!
    • 57' AUSTRIA SUB: An emotional entrance for Umit Korkmaz as he plays against the country of his origin.
    • 51' Arda with a speculative effort from range, with the outside of his right, but it curls past the stranded Macho and wide of the post.
    • 46' Second half gets underway...
    • 45+2 Half-time and Turkey lead through Arda Turan's fine goal!
    • 45' Half-chance for Austria as Maierhofer heads on target but Volkan is well placed to claim. They need to gtet more aerial balls towards him.
    • 28' TURKEY SCORE! It's been coming and it's a superb solo effort from Arda Turan, played in on the left but with it all to do, wriggling past three defenders before sliding a low finish past Macho!
    • 26' GREAT CHALLENGE BY POGATETZ! Well, Turkey were all over Austria, cutting them apart as Turan and Sahin combined before Altintop threatened to go all the way - a last-gasp sliding tackle from Poggie saved the day.
    • 23' Straght down the other end and a super run from Harnik down the right sees him cut it back to teenage sensation Alaba who takes a few touches before firing it over! Should have hit it first time!
    • 22' Long-range effort from Selcuk that is deflected wide and from the corner that follows the highly-rated Arda Turan heads just wide! Should have scored.
    • 17' Great skill by Altintop until Fuchs tackles on the edge of the box.
    • 13' Pogatetz is shown a yellow card for a very late tackle on Altintop.
    • 7' Altintop with a pop but saved by the Austria keeper Macho. Note - there are two players of Turkish origin in the Austria XI - Ekrem Dag and Yasin Pehlivan - and one on the bench in Umit Korkmaz.
    • 1' This is the game of the day in my opinion as Austria and Turkey continue a three-way battle for second in Germany's Group A.
