The meeting between the Turks and the Welsh from the first minutes was very exciting, but the players from the British Isles were in excellent conditions. Already in the seventh minute, Ramsay was the first of the three alone with the goalkeeper in the first half, but he missed the fight with Kagir after Bale’s excellent pass. The Turks responded with an action, after which Burak Yilmas fired a blocked shot from several meters.

After this situation, the Turks attacked very threateningly and even after kicking in the corner, they shot two head shots past Kagira, but were well stopped in the goal line by the Welsh defenders.

As a result, Wales led 1-0 with Turkey until the break.

It started with some very dangerous attacks from the Turks, but it was easy for Kalhanoklu to defend a long shot ward, then Yilmas missed the perfect opportunity after kicking a corner, he hit the bar from five meters into the air.
Wales responded several times and very threateningly. First, after James’ action, Ramsay attacked Kagir from a few meters, and as game time passed, Celik and Foul received a foul kick from the side of the Charging Ball penalty area. The victim approached the ball himself, but he sent the ball over the bar!
Several dozen seconds later, Turkish goalkeeper Celik shot the ball he was staring at, but luckily the ball missed the target centimeter. Since then, both teams have frequently entered the defensive zone, but they have been very ineffective. The Welsh had more sport, and its attacks were certainly more specific.

Already in extra time of the game, Wilson and Bale did not take advantage of the next chances, and finally, in the final act of the match, the Real footballer broke the final line to the penalty area and threw the ball in fifth place to Connor Roberts, who set the match ending 2-0 with a flat shot to Wales.
