Turkey 4-0 Bulgaria
Turkey warmed up for their life-and-death qualifier against Kazakhstan in impressive style against neighbours Bulgaria in Istanbul. All the goals came in the second half.

Hakan Çalhanoğlu opened the scoring with a fantastic free-kick four minutes after half-time, and quickly extended Fatih Terim's side's lead. Burak Yılmaz (pictured, left) then got in on the act with two goals to add to his Turkish Cup final hat-trick last week.

Winger Yasin Öztekin (28) and left-back Emre Taşdemir (19) both started on their senior debuts.
