Turkey beat Iceland 1-0 in their final Euro 2016 Group A game to book a place in the tournament.
The Crescent Stars needed just a point to book a place in the play-off but due to Kazakhstan beating Latvia a victory for Terim’s boys would have ensure victory.
Galatasaray star Selçuk İnan scored the winning goal from an 89th minute free-kick to book Turkey a place in their first European Championships since 2008.
