Goals from Arda Turan and Gokhan Gonul led Turkey to a 2-0 win
over Austria on Tuesday to rise above its opponent in Group A of

Turkey went ahead in the 28th minute when Arda received the ball
from a throw-in, dribbled through the defense and slid the ball
past goalkeeper Juergen Macho.
Gokhan doubled the lead from a through pass by substitute Semih
Senturk following a counterattack, the right winger easily slipping
the ball into the net to seal the victory.
Turkey goalkeeper Volkan Demirel saved a penalty from substitute
Erwin Hoffer in the 83rd to end any hopes of a comeback.
Turkey has nine points, two more than Austria. Germany has a
perfect record to top the group with 15 points.
