Armenia undone by Aydın strike

Turkey 1-0 Armenia
Aydın Yılmaz scored the only goal four minutes into added time as Turkey marked their first home qualifier with a victory in Group 2.

Aydın Yılmaz scored the only goal four minutes into added time as Turkey marked their first home game in 2011 UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualifying with a victory against Armenia.

Bouncing back
Hami Mandirali's side began Group 2 with three-goal victories away to the Republic of Ireland and Armenia before a 4-0 defeat in Georgia last time out stopped them in their tracks. They were confident of bouncing back against an Armenia team which had conceded ten goals in three point-less outings in the section, only to be frustrated by indifferent shooting and stubborn defending until Aydın scored with virtually the last kick of the match from outside the box.

Half chances
The first half was even with Armenia's opportunities chiefly being of the half variety and from range. Turkey were more threatening, and central defenders Demir Aiykut and Serdar Aziz both headed Ferhat Kiraz corners narrowly wide. Coach Mandirali signalled his intent by using all three substitutes within 12 minutes of the restart, although his new-look XI failed to trouble Edvard Hovhannisyan in the Armenia goal. The keeper had to be at his best, however, to deny Mustafa Pektemek on the hour and Burak Çalık in the 77th minute, but could do nothing about Aydın's precise strike in added time.
