Alexander Prass (6.3/10)
Expected to give fresh legs in the second half to get an equaliser for Austria, wasn’t as effective as he needed to be.

Abdülkerim Bardakcı (6.6/10)
Was a bit careful when challenging Austrian players as he had just returned from a one-match ban.

Merih Demiral (9/10)
Shocked the Austrian with his goals in both halves and also led his teammates to guard the defensive line well. Best player on the pitch!

Kaan Ayhan (6.8/10)
Spent more time in his territory instead of actively attacking, but he also put several attempts to provide the balls for the front-liners.

Orkun Kökçü (6.8/10)
Played a bit sloppy approach in terms of dealing with Baumgartner, got a yellow which will rule him out of the next game.

İsmail Yüksek (6.8/10)
Similar to Kokcu, he was also a bit careless when it came to dealing with Baumgartner, which got him booked.

Ferdi Kadıoğlu (7.3/10)
Worked hard to keep ball possession in his team’s favour and built attacks from deep.

Mert Müldür (6.7/10)
Was seen continuously running down the flank, winning duels and slicing the opponents defence with his passes.

Kenan Yıldız (6.8/10)
His movement was so threatening that the likes of Seiwald, Laimer, and Mwene had to gather around him to defend.

Barış Alper Yılmaz (6.8/10)
Was a distraction when most of the Austrian defenders aimed their focus more on Yildiz and Guler.

Arda Guler (7/10)
One of the most marked Turkish players on the pitch and despite that, his movement was concerning for the Austrian defenders.


Salih Ozkan (6.9/10)
Turkiye manager Vicenzo Montella put him on to replace Kokcu to avoid the latter getting a red card and Ozkan paid his manager’s trust off.

Kerem Akturkoglu (6.9/10)
Get the job done with maintaining the lead for Turkiye in the 12 minutes that he featured for.

Okay Yokuslu (6.8/10)
Same as his teammate Akturkoglu, was brought on to close the game and he helped Turkey do exactly that.

Irfan Kahveci (6/10)
Came in too late to have much of an effect on the game.
