Tottenham striker scores contraversial against Turkey

Turkey - Euro 2024 Turkish Football

England beat Turkey 2-1 at the Etihad in today’s international friendly game.

Harry Kane opened the scoring inside the first five minutes but the replay showed that the goal was clearly offside.

Hakan Calhanoglu equalised for Turkey on 14 minutes in what was the first goal ever scored by the Crescent-Stars against England.

The game looked destined for a draw after Kane missed a second half penalty but poor defending from an 83rd minute set piece resulted in Jamie Vardy punishing Turkey by scoring the winner.

England ended Turkey’s 14 match unbeaten run and maintained their 100 percent unbeaten record against the visitors in the process.
