38′ YELLOW CARD: Romano Schmid is into the books as he tackles Ferdi Kadioglu from behind to stop a counter.

42′ YELLOW CARD: Ismail Yuksek has his name taken by the referee after a foul on Christoph Baumgartner – the second Turkey player booked and they both have fouled the same Austrian player.

46′ SUBSTITUTIONS: Ralf Rangnick is not happy with the first half and has taken off Phillipp Mwene and Romano Schmid. Alexander Prass and Michael Gregoritsch come on.

66′ GOAL! We have a game on our hands as Austria pull one back. Once again, it is a corner that leads to a goal as the substitute Michael Gregoritsch nudges the ball in at the far post after being left unmarked.

78′ SUBSTITUTIONS: Turkey’s turn to make a double substitution and they bring on Kerem Aktürkoğlu and Okay Yokuşlu for Arda Güler and Kenan Yıldız.

83′ SUBSTITUTION: Another change for Turkey and this time they bring on İrfan Can Kahveci for Orkun Kökçü.

FULL TIME: Austria 1-2 Turkey.

Key moment:

Merih Demiral will make the headlines for his goals, but it is Mert Günok’s save at the very end of the match that got Turkey the win. The goalkeeper had no right to save that header from Christoph Baumgartner from inside the six-yard box, but he managed to push it out for a corner.

Player of the Match:

Merih Demiral is undoubtedly the man of the match today for his goals and then his heroics in defense. There was nothing wrong with his performance in the entire game and he was simply too good for Austria.


Another blockbuster clash finishes in the Euro 2024 round of 16 and Turkey have sent Austria packing. They are now set to travel to Berlin to face the Netherlands in the quarterfinals at the Olympiastadion.
