Russia and Turkey with second victories in World Cup qualification


The Turks prevailed after the opening success against the Netherlands against Norway 3-0 (2-0), Russia defeated Slovenia 2-1 (2-1). The Netherlands (2-0 against Latvia) and Croatia (1-0 over Cyprus) were able to celebrate for the first time after their false starts.

The Turks, who shocked the Netherlands 4-2 on Wednesday, started in Malaga like a shot thanks to Ozan Tufan (4th). Caglar Söyüncü beat Erling Haaland and Co. before the half-hour mark (28th), Tufan finally made the preliminary decision (59th). In the finish, Norway’s Kristian Thorstvedt (80th) saw red after a hard climb.

Level with the Turks is in Group G Montenegro after a 4-1 (2-1) over Gibraltar in Podgorica. Three points behind, the Netherlands made amends for the opening defeat against Turkey. Steven Berghuis (42nd) and Luuk de Jong (69th) ensured a safe but hard-earned 2-0 (1-0) home win over the pointless Latvians.

The Russians celebrated their second win in their second game with a home 2-1 (2-1) win against Slovenia and lead Group H. Artyom Djuba scored both goals in Sochi (26th, 35th). Three days after the 1-0 surprise against Croatia, Slovenia couldn’t get past Josip Ilicic’s goal (36th). The Croatian World Cup finalist 2018 struggled in Rijeka against Cyprus to a 1-0 (1-0) or his first victory and drew level with the Slovenians (3 each) on points. The only goal scored by Mario Pasalic (40th).
