Borussia Dortmund star Emre Mor became the third youngest player to provide an assist in the European Championships when he setup Burak Yilmaz with the opening goal in the 2-0 victory over Czech Republic yesterday.

Mor setup the opening goal in what was his first start of the European Championships in a result that could miraculously book Turkey a place in the next round of Euro 2016.

The 18-year-old attacking midfielder became the third youngest player to setup a goal in the history of the tournament after Wayne Rooney and Scifo.

Mor put on a brilliant performance giving the Czech Republic defence a nightmare constantly threatening on the break and when in possession.

The youngster has won over a lot of fans recently including Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger.

Wenger was quoted by the Milliyet as saying: “He came on against Croatia and I must say I was impressed by his talented he was.”

Turkey now require Italy and Belgium not to lose their games tomorrow in Group E. Alternatively if Hungary beat Portugal in Group F the Crescent Stars will also book a place in the next round.
