Gheorghe Grozav scored the only goal as Romania maintained their perfect record in FIFA World Cup qualifying Group D with a narrow victory against Turkey.

Grozav's strike on the stroke of half-time earned Victor Piţurcă's side their third victory from as many games in the section, setting them up perfectly for Tuesday's encounter with co-leaders the Netherlands. Turkey, with three points from as many matches, already have a lot to do to stay in contention for a place at Brazil 2014.
