Turkey has also won no points for the second game of this European Championship. With an outstanding Gareth Bale starring, Wales turned out to be a buddy too big that puts Turkey on the edge of the abyss.
In an equally ascending first half, both countries were given the opportunity to get ahead. However, it took a few minutes to rest before the first hit of the game could be recorded. Bale managed to reach Aaron Ramsey with a splitting pass. The Juventus player handfully checked the ball and then took care of the 0-1.
After rest, Senol Günes brought two fresh powers and went to search for the equalizer with man and power. The Turks, who lost 3-0 from Italy in the opening competition of the European Championships, had the necessary odds but Danny Ward turned out to be a real step in the way. After exactly an hour of play, Wales also heard of it again and that immediately gave a penalty kick.
Bale himself took a seat behind the ball but aimed far too high, keeping it exciting unabated. Both teams became sloppy at the ball as the second half progressed. Wales got the necessary odds at 0-2, but wasn‘t sharp enough in the finish. The Turkish defense rattled quite a bit at times.
In a less exciting closing offensive, the Turks were given one more serious chance. The invaded defender Merih Demiral towed above everyone at a Turkish corner five minutes before time, but Wales goalkeeper Ward turned excellent. In the absolute final phase, Turkey blunted frustration and it became a little bit unfriendly when Turkey captain Burak Yilmaz handed out a little bit with the flat hand.
In the fifth minute of injury time, Wales managed to make it 0-2. Connor Roberts shot at indicating who else, Bale’s low hit the middle behind Turkey‘s unambigous goalie. With the second defeat in a row, Turkey’s European Championships appear to be over after two group matches. With four points out of two games, Wales is the new leader in Group A. Later in the evening, the other two countries in Group A, Italy and Switzerland, compete against each other. That game starts at 9 p.m.
