Arda Turan is on an astonishing 38 match unbeaten run for Barcelona but Turkey are also doing pretty well having gone 13 games without a defeat following their 2-1 win over Austria yesterday.
Turan started for the Crescent-Stars and put on an impressive performance helping his side come from behind to win.
For once we had the chance to praise a Turkish goalkeeper he just happened to be playing for Austria. Turan made the most of Ramazan Ozcan’s blunder lobbing him from just past the half-way line.
