FT

Turkey

  • Hasan Gokhan Sas 45'
  • 90'

    A sorry end to the game: the referee blows the final whistle and Brazil have won 2-1

  • 90'

    Brazil break, and it's a corner. Rivaldo has the ball kicked at him by Hakan Unsal, who is sent off. Rivaldo clutched his face: the ball went nowhere near it

  • 90'

    ...and Turkey go down to the other end, winning a free-kick inside the D. Last chance, maybe...

  • 90'

    Luizao gets a shot in after some great Brazilian interplay on the edge of the area. Rustu blocks it well

  • 90'

    Into injury time, and Brazil - who have had the lion's share of the chances - are within a whisker of victory

  • 89'

    Erdem is on for Tugay in Turkey's last throw of the dice. Can they save a point?

  • 89'

    Sas heads over the top - that could so easily have been the most dramatic of equalisers for Turkey

  • 88'

    Turkey's protests are still going on... when play resumes, Mansiz wins a free-kick

  • 87'

    Rivaldo keeps his calm amid the fuss to slam the penalty past a furious Rustu. It's 2-1 Brazil!

  • 86'

    The offence looked to have been just outside the area, but the referee pointed to the spot

  • 85'

    Alpay is sent off after Rustu makes a poor clearance. The Turkey man tugs back Luizao and is dismissed... and Brazil have a penalty

  • 85'

    Fatih does well as Brazil play the ball forward dangerously once again, and now Turkey are indulging in a spot of keep-ball

  • 84'

    Good defending ends his charge into the Turkey penalty area

  • 83'

    Turkey would be delighted with a draw, but defender Edmilson is charging forward...

  • 82'

    Time running out for either side to find a winner... Denilson tries to thread the ball through but it travels back to Rustu

  • 81'

    Roberto Carlos is over the ball for Brazil - he lashes it in and the ball rebounds back to him. The follow-up shot, though, is wild...

  • 80'

    Down goes Denilson, near the byline on the left of the area...

  • 80'

    Denilson drives the ball across the Turkey area, but nobody is able to get a touch and it runs out for a goal-kick

  • 79'

    The ball is swung in deep, but Alpay is unable to get there

  • 78'

    Sas, who has caused Brazil plenty of problems today, earns another free-kick for Turkey...

  • 77'

    Roberto Carlos looks for Luizao - the offside flag stops Brazil in their tracks

  • 76'

    Now Cafu crosses, and Turkey clear. Just under 15 minutes remaining...

  • 75'

    At the other end, Fatih times his challenge well - but Rivaldo soon tests Turkey again with a fierce shot just over

  • 74'

    Sas makes room for himself with great skill, but Hakan Sukur can't quite take the ball on after a couple of ricochets

  • 73'

    Denilson picks up a booking for dissent, and then Ronaldo is taken off to be replaced by Luizao

  • 73'

    Vampeta comes on for Brazil, replacing Juninho. The one-time Middlesbrough man has had an excellent game

  • 72'

    He crosses and Rustu - not for the first time - claims well

  • 71'

    Rivaldo twists and turns outside the area to find Roberto Carlos...

  • 70'

    Turkey have regained a foothold in this game - but soon only a good Alpay challenge stops Ronaldo breaking through

  • 69'

    This one's from the left - Davala hits it, but the effort is blocked

  • 68'

    Sukur is fouled, giving Turkey another potentially dangerous free-kick

  • 67'

    ...and one for Brazil, with Denilson replacing Ronaldinho

  • 66'

    Two Turkey changes - Davala comes on for Basturk and Mansiz is on for Bulent

  • 65'

    It's curled wastefully over with players in the middle waiting in vain for a cross

  • 64'

    Turkey trying to keep the ball at the back and take some of the pace out of things... they do better than that, coming forward to earn a dangerous free-kick through Fatih

  • 63'

    He looked to be onside there, but the assistant referee had other ideas

  • 62'

    Rivaldo heads home, but the offside flag - controversially - is up. No goal

  • 62'

    Juninho finds room within the area and fires in a crisp shot - Rustu palms it behind for a corner

  • 61'

    Hakan Sukur nods back a cross, but there's nobody there to get on the end of what was an excellent header

  • 61'

    Turkey, for the time being, are managing to hold on against increasing waves of pressure

  • 60'

    Lucio stabs it goalwards, and Rustu stops it. Brazil could so easily be in front by now

  • 60'

    At the other end, Roberto Carlos wins another Brazil corner...

  • 59'

    Bulent hammers in a shot, which Marcos holds onto at the second attempt

  • 58'

    ...and Turkey win a free-kick as Sas is brought down 35 yards out

  • 57'

    Juninho sets off on a run, but the move ends when his misplaced pass is intercepted

  • 56'

    Roberto Carlos is the next to try his luck, this time from an angle and just inside the area. It hits the side-netting, but the flag was up in any case

  • 56'

    Turkey struggling at the moment - Brazil working up a head of steam

  • 55'

    Ronaldo then sees an effort from just outside the area charged down

  • 54'

    Ronaldo makes a brilliant run, shimmying his way past defenders on the edge of the area. He finishes off with a curling shot - and Rustu makes a good save

  • 54'

    Bulent is felled by a Ronaldinho challenge, but soon gets back to his feet

  • 53'

    He crosses into the Brazil area, but it's headed clear

  • 52'

    Basturk finds Sas as Turkey look to hit back after conceding that goal...

  • 51'

    Relief for Brazil, and joy for Ronaldo. He's back - and in style

  • 50'

    But just seconds later, he equalises... Rivaldo crosses and Ronaldo supplies a lunging finish. It's 1-1!

  • 49'

    Tugay plays a long ball forward - Brazil break and Rivaldo gets into the area... the ball falls for Ronaldo, whose shot is blocked

  • 48'

    Ronaldinho and Juninho try to create some spark, but Turkey are snapping into the challenges and denying their opponents any sort of time on the ball

  • 48'

    The Turkey keeper kicks long downfield: Hasan Sas is unable to make anything of it

  • 47'

    ...he fires in a low effort, and Rustu, who has played steadily throughout, fields it well

  • 47'

    Turkey have a throw, but the ball is given away to Brazil and Ronaldo charges forward...

  • 46'

    He's crowded out, but Brazil's attempt to move forward is aimless

  • 45'

    Turkey kick off the second period, and move forward with Basturk...

  • 45'

    Now it is half time - Brazil have plenty to think about. They trail 1-0...

  • 45'

    Consternation on the Brazil bench: the Turks have made the breakthrough with just seconds left to the break

  • 45'

    Basturk makes a great break and fires in a devastating cross - Hasan Sas is there to sweep it coolly into the net. Turkey lead 1-0!

  • 45'

    Cafu is found by Roque Junior's clever flick - and promptly wastes possession

  • 45'

    Two minutes of stoppage time will be played

  • 45'

    ...it's flicked on to Ronaldinho, who jinks into the area but sees his shot well blocked by Rustu

  • 45'

    Approaching first-half injury time, and Brazil have a free-kick inside their own half

  • 44'

    It skids through the defensive lines and Rustu holds on again

  • 44'

    ...but it's only a booking for the Turkey player. Roberto Carlos is over the free-kick...

  • 43'

    Juninho tries to free Ronaldo as Turkey lose the ball... Ronaldo is brought down by Alpay as he looks to go clean through...

  • 42'

    Rivaldo takes the ball on and fires in a swerving low 30-yarder - Rustu saves well

  • 41'

    Just under five minutes left to the break - it's been an even half, with Brazil only sporadically flickering into life

  • 40'

    Turkey launch the ball long, but it's to nobody in particular

  • 40'

    The best moment of the match - great work from Ronaldo on the left in that move

  • 40'

    Ronaldo crosses superbly, Rivaldo heads goalwards - and Rustu responds with a fine stop

  • 39'

    Ronaldinho crosses, but it's overhit and Rustu claims with no problems

  • 38'

    Good skills from Lucio, but Ronaldo can't get onto his flick and Turkey take the ball away

  • 37'

    Tugay has another go, and Marcos holds on to his powerful long-range shot

  • 37'

    That's got a lot to do with an organised and committed performance from Turkey, who have come closest to breaking the deadlock

  • 36'

    Felipe Scolari looks animated on the bench, as well he might - it's not flowing for Brazil at the moment

  • 35'

    Ronaldo concedes a free-kick, tugging Bulent's shirt as he attempts to get clear on the right

  • 34'

    Sas takes it, Alpay tumbles under challenge in the area - but the referee waves play on as the ball floats out

  • 33'

    Great chance for Turkey to create a real threat from this set-piece

  • 32'

    Roque Junior is adjudged to have fouled Sas just outside the area...

  • 32'

    The Turks are on the ball again after that brief Brazil flurry... not for long, thanks to some no-nonsense defending from Cafu

  • 31'

    Hakan Unsal attempts a cross for Turkey, but it's all wrong and Marcos can gather that happily

  • 30'

    Roberto Carlos on the ball again... this time he tries a shot, which is blocked

  • 29'

    Cafu, Rivaldo and Ronaldo link brilliantly to find Juninho just outside the box, and his fizzing drive is not too far off the mark

  • 29'

    Roberto Carlos looks to change all that - but the cross is too far ahead of his team-mates

  • 28'

    The Turks are looking pretty comfortable, and Brazil are struggling to make real inroads after that bright start

  • 28'

    ...but it's an inaccurate one and Turkey get that away with no problems

  • 27'

    Rivaldo ushers the ball to Gilberto Silva, then Ronaldinho crosses...

  • 26'

    Cafu and Ronaldinho attempt a one-two on the right: it stutters to a halt

  • 25'

    A flick-on from Turkey comes to nothing... neither does a loose Edmilson pass forward

  • 24'

    Hakan Unsal goes into the book for a spot of shirt-pulling... Cafu tries to break down the right but Unsal deals with that

  • 23'

    Hakan Sukur is grounded after a challenge... he struggles back to his feet eventually

  • 22'

    Then Juninho intercepts as Tugay tries to set up a break... Ronaldinho goes straight to the other end, and his pass towards the area is blocked

  • 21'

    Roberto Carlos tumbles over under challenge in the area: Fatih is booked for his reaction to that incident...

  • 20'

    A good spell for Turkey, but the corner is too deep to pose any threat this time

  • 20'

    The corner is whipped in dagerously and Marcos has to tip it away. It's another flag-kick

  • 19'

    Turkey make a complete mess of it - but Tugay picks up the pieces and his drive is deflected against the top of the bar

  • 18'

    Then Sas is fouled just outside the area. This is very central and about 20 yards out...

  • 17'

    Rustu hits a long goal-kick downfield, but Hakan Sukur can't get away... Sas crosses and Sukur can't quite get there ahead of keeper Marcos

  • 16'

    Cafu gets away down the right to fire in a dangerous cross - it just eludes the crowd of Brazil attackers in the middle

  • 15'

    Edmilson ushers the ball out of danger as Hasan Sas looks to get in down the right for Turkey

  • 15'

    ...until he's eventually crowded out. Plenty of pace to this match

  • 14'

    Turkey are confident enough to string some neat moves together, and this one gives Basturk some space...

  • 14'

    Hakan Sukur gets it away, and Brazil have to settle for a throw

  • 13'

    Ronaldinho curls it, and the Turkey wall stands firm to deflect the ball away for a corner

  • 12'

    Alpay fouls Ronaldo just outside the area - this could be very dangerous...

  • 11'

    Turkey put some good passing together until Basturk is fouled on half-way. Free-kick

  • 11'

    Umit Ozat heads clear from Roberto Carlos, launching his first charge down the left

  • 10'

    Hasan Sas makes a smart interception with Juninho rather waiting for the ball, but it's soon back with Brazil, and Ronaldo sees his shot blocked

  • 9'

    Now Rivaldo fancies a shot from distance, but it's too high. Massive anticipation inside the stadium whenever he or Ronaldo have the ball

  • 8'

    Ronaldo turns past the Turkish defence - Juninho tries to feed the ball back to him inside the area but narrowly fails

  • 7'

    Rustu slices a clearance and Ronaldinho tries to chip him from distance - that's over the bar

  • 7'

    They're deep inside their own half - and lose the ball to Rivaldo. Tugay steps in with a fine challenge

  • 6'

    Plenty of action in these early stages, and Turkey are more than playing their part

  • 6'

    Emre takes, Rivaldo is back defending and Brazil clear their lines

  • 5'

    ...Then Basturk is back in the action again and wins a corner for Turkey

  • 5'

    Good determination from Basturk wins the ball - but Cafu races away as Brazil get it back. He's blocked...

  • 4'

    Bulent heads clear as Rivaldo challenges - it's going to be a hard day's work for the Turkish back line

  • 3'

    All action - Ronaldo tries his luck from outside the area, but the effort is too high

  • 3'

    Then Juninho dances his way into the area, but keeper Rustu claims the low cross

  • 2'

    It's down the right, but the delivery from Rivaldo is poor and Turkey don't have to work hard to get it clear

  • 1'

    Hakan Unsal can't keep the ball in play - Brazil steam forward with Rivaldo, who wins a dangerous free-kick

  •  

    Bulent gets the first challnge in for Turkey as Ronaldo tries to get to the ball

  •  

    Brazil get us under way - all eyes are on them after a difficult qualifying campaign...
