Turkey Shock Holland 4-2 In Opening World Cup Qualifier

By Chukwuka Joseph (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Turkey upset the odds on Wednesday night after securing a famous 4-2 victory over Holland.

In doing so the hosts gained crucial points for their qualifying campaign ahead of the 2022 Qatar World Cup, with a hat-trick from Burak Yilmaz sealing victory.

The game looked to be effectively over when Hakan Calhanoglu added the third a few seconds into the second half but two goals in as many minutes gave the Dutch hope of a late comeback.

Frank de Boer’s men threatened a late comeback with goals from Davy Klaassen and Luuk de Jong, but ultimately could not turn the tide. 

Their momentum was ended, however, by a stunning free kick from Yilmaz that completed his hat-trick and secured the points for Turkey.

The win now places them in great stead ahead of facing Norway on Saturday, before facing Latvia on the following Tuesday.
