Turkey 1-0 Northern Ireland – International Friendly – 15th November 2013

Turkey Northern Ireland Soccer

Facing Turkey on their own patch was always going to be a difficult game for Northern Ireland, particularly as the game saw managerial legend Fatih Terim take charge of the Turks at the start of his third spell in charge of the side.

Huddersfield’s Oliver Norwood had the best chances for Michael Hughes’ men, but failed to make the most of them while not surprisingly, it was Turkey who created the best chances of the game.

Wideman Arda Turan was in impressive form for the home side, providing a constant threat to the Irish backline, but it was St Etienne striker Mevlut Erding who would finally make the breakthrough on half-time after a mix-up at the back for the visitors.

The second-half was a bit of a damp squib, although Martin Paterson did go close late on.
