Semih saves the day

Turkey 1-0 Kazakhstan Semih Sentürk finally broke the visitors' resistance with 13 minutes remaining.

Turkey's Under-21 side claimed their first victory in Group 2 as Fenerbahçe SK striker Semih Sentürk's 77th-minute strike proved enough to overcome Kazakhstan.

Threat throughout
Semi was a threat throughout and had three decent opportunities in the first half alone. He finally broke the deadlock with a close-range finish after Muhammed Yoldas's right-wing cross had precipitated a goalmouth scramble.

Behind closed doors
Kazakhstan had been reduced to ten men four minutes earlier after Timur Moldagaliyev was sent off for a second bookable offence. The match was played behind closed doors at Istanbul's Inönü stadium because of a suspension Turkey must serve after trouble at a previous game.
