Turkey failed to cling onto second place in 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifying Group D as a climactic defeat by the section winners ensured they missed out on the play-offs.

A packed Şükrü Saracoğlu stadium was ready to roar Fatih Terim's side to victory, but the arena was swiftly silenced by Arjen Robben's early strike. Turkey laboured to get back into it and Wesley Sneijder's second-half effort, coupled with Romania's success against Estonia, guaranteed that Terim's men must sit out the finals in Brazil.
