Turkey earned their first points of the 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifying campaign courtesy of a comfortable win against Estonia, who played for over 70 minutes with ten men.

If Estonia had any intentions of taking the fight to their opponents then their game plan changed irrevocably when Enar Jääger was sent off for fouling Burak Yılmaz as Turkey mounted a promising attack. They held out until a minute before the interval, when Emre Belözoğlu struck, with Umut Bulut and Selçuk İnan increasing the margin of victory after the break.
