Turkey came from behind to beat Qatar 2-1 at the Abdullah Bin Khalifa stadium in the first of their Euro 2016 warm up games.

Ali Asadalla made the most of some poor Turkish defending to exploit the Crescent-Stars on the break and score the opening goal.

Turkey national team boss Fatih Terim brought on Yunus Malli for his debut in the second half but it was Barcelona star Arda Turan who equalised 20 minutes after the interval.

Turan who has yet to play a single game for Barcelona this season due to the FIFA transfer ban in place then setup Cenk Tosun with the winning goal just three minutes later.

Turkey take on Greece next in the second of their warm up games.
