Burak Yılmaz and Mevlüt Erdinç scored as Turkey kept their 2014 FIFA World Cup dream alive, denting Romania's ambitions in the process.

The contest in Bucharest was 22 minutes old when Burak broke the deadlock. Romania struggled to find their rhythm despite twice hitting the frame of the goal and Mevlüt put the result beyond doubt deep into added time. Fatih Terim's charges leapfrog their opponents on goal difference into third, one point behind Hungary; the Netherlands have wrapped up top spot in Group D.
