Turkey too strong for Liechtenstein

Liechtenstein 0-3 Turkey
The visitors engineered their second win from two games in Group 7 thanks to goals from Muhammet Demir, Burak Kaplan and Alper Uludağ.

Turkey made it two wins from two in 2013 UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualifying Group 7 courtesy of a 3-0 success away against Liechtenstein.

Raşit Çetiner's charges kicked off their campaign with a 6-1 home win against the same opponents in March, and although the scoreline was less emphatic in Vaduz, Turkey were similarly dominant. Muhammet Demir got the ball rolling with half an hour gone as he found the net following good work by Emre Çolak.

The visitors almost added a second when Burak Kaplan hit the post with a powerful effort from 25 metres out, but Armando Heeb promptly responded in kind for the hosts when he connected with the woodwork via a dangerous attempt from the left.

Despite that glimmer of hope, Turkey doubled the deficit after the interval through Burak, who unleashed an accurate shot from 20 metres that flew in to the left of goalkeeper Dario Caluori. Alper Uludağ then profited from a superb Şahin Aygüneş assist to add the third in added time, eight minutes after coming on.
