Turkey breathed life into their faltering FIFA World Cup qualifying campaign but were made to work hard for a 2-0 victory away to Andorra.

Abdullah Avcı's side initially struggled to find a way through their resilient hosts but Selçuk İnan's 30th-minute free-kick was unstoppable, finding the top-right corner from 25 metres. Galatasaray AŞ club-mate Burak Yılmaz doubled the lead in first half added time, rifling in from an acute angle; from then on it was damage limitation for the hosts.
