The Turkish national team is playing in the playoffs for participation in the World Cup. With a win in Montenegro, the Kuntz-Elf finished the qualification in second place. It was no longer enough for the really big hit.
The last World Cup qualifying matchday in Group G had a lot to offer. While Turkey held their ground 2-1 in Montenegro, the Netherlands beat Norway 2-0. As a result, “Oranje” travels to Qatar first in the group, Turkey under coach Stefan Kuntz will play in the playoffs for the Winter World Cup in March.
At first it looked as if the Turks could not solve their duty. Montenegro striker Fatos Beqiraj (4th) shot his colors in the front early. After a good 20 minutes, Kerem Aktürkoglu scored the deserved equalizer before Orkun Kökcü scored the final score with a deflected goal (60th). In the end, Stefan Kuntz’s team failed to make the win clearer.
