Austria Vs Turkey

Euro 2024’s lively and charismatic characters meet head on in an intense competition.

Before Guler took the corner that eventually led to Turkey’s second goal, Austria supporters bombarded him with cups. Guler responded by cupping his ear as they continued their insult.Austria Vs Turkey

Florian Grillitsch attempts to narrow the deficit with a cross, but his shot flies directly toward Gunok and does not go anywhere near its intended target.Austria Vs Turkey

Austria Vs Turkey  Merih Demiral

Merih Demiral scored twice to propel Turkey through to the quarterfinals at Euro 2024 with a 2-1 victory against Austria. The Al Ahli centre-back made history when he scored early on with his header after just 57 seconds following some pinball in Austria’s box, before adding another towering header from an Arda Guler corner on hour mark to double Turkey’s advantage 2-1. Demiral became first defender since Lillian Thuram back in 1998 to score twice during European Championship knockout stage game until stoppage time came and Michael Gregoritsch pulled one back for Austria 1-2.Austria Vs Turkey

Although Leipzig experienced an intense downpour, both teams started off strongly as both went close in the opening stages. Once rain set in, however, Demiral was on hand to net another goal for Turkey via his header after Guler had taken an excellent corner kick.Austria Vs Turkey

Marko Arnautovic came close to pulling off an unlikely comeback during a tense final 25 minutes, firing inches wide of Gunok from one-on-one when facing him off head-on, but Gunok spread himself brilliantly to keep out Christoph Baumgartner’s header as hosts tried desperately for an equaliser after three consecutive losses at Euros. But in the final minute Gunok used an arm similar to Gordon Banks to clear away Baumgartner’s attempt at scoring and Turkey held on for their maiden ever Euro knockout quarter-final victory!Austria Vs Turkey

Austria Vs Turkey  Arda Guler

Austria’s 2022 World Cup campaign has been transformed by an RB Leipzig midfielder as its focal point. Although initially considered dark horses by armchair pundits three years ago, Austria have since emerged victorious from Group D thanks to intimidating gegenpressing and inclusive team morale – becoming a genuine threat against Portugal and Germany respectively. And now their man tasked with orchestrating their attack will forever be remembered for his heroics against Turkey in the final match!

Guler, who only joined the squad recently for this tournament, made an enormous impactful statement with his presence and contributions throughout this contest. Although suffering from an intermittent knee injury he remained vital.

Guler has also played an instrumental role at both ends of the field. In the sixth minute, his corner kick was what enabled Demiral to score and then in 59th minute Guler provided another perfect cross for Demiral to head home his second goal of the evening.

He almost produced a third for his hosts in the 88th minute with a thunderous shot from outside of the box that narrowly missed its target. Moments later, however, Gregoritsch scored from Sabitzer set-piece as Austrian red-shirts began finding overloads and mismatches as play continued into an endless rain of beer cups.

Austria Vs Turkey  Mert Gunok

Turkish goalkeeper Murat Gunok made an extraordinary save late into stoppage time against Austria, preserving Turkey’s 2-1 win and keeping their Euro 2024 quarter-final hopes alive. This moment of Gunok brilliance earned his team their victory while also cementing England keeper Gordon Banks’ famous block against Pele at 1970 World Cup, earning Austria coach Michael Gregoritsch praise as being “one of the greatest saves I have ever seen”.

Demiral opened up quickly as pace quickened with his first goal after just 57 seconds, grabbing an Austrian pinball sequence within their box to score his opening shot.

Austria stepped up their pressure after halftime and looked poised for an unlikely comeback, only for Gunok to deny Marko Arnautovic a direct shot on goal despite him getting through one-on-one and strike with it only to have it deflected wide by Gunok.

Guler struck again with another devastating corner from the left side, with Austria’s defenders pressing forward and midfielders dropping back to create new overloads. Mwene fizzed her cross into the middle where Muldur, Ayhan, Kadioglu and Bardakci battled for possession before Real Madrid striker Isco found space and headed in his second goal of the evening to send them reeling backwards – Austria were reeling and only an extraordinary individual could rescue them now.

Austria Vs Turkey  Michael Gregoritsch

Gregoritsch returned to Austria’s starting lineup after an ankle injury prevented him from playing last week against Werder Bremen, making a great start by prodding wide with an early shot before redirecting Marcel Sabitzer corner into goal in 17th minute.

Leipzig native Philipp Pohle was a constant threat, almost scoring in the 23rd minute when his teasing delivery saw Baris Alper Yilmaz try to bundle over at the far post from its delivery. This action signified a change of energy among home side’s team as they began pressing forward together.

Red Bull Arena was buzzing with energy despite torrential downpour, with Germany expats providing Montella’s team with an intoxicating sense of home support. Unfortunately, however, that excitement quickly soured when beer cups started falling on Marcel Sabitzer as he attempted to take a corner kick.

But the corner that brought them level came at a cost and resulted in Ismail Yuksek being booked, potentially banning him from any quarter-final should Turkey advance. Ralf Rangnick made substitutions at half time to try and find instant solutions; Alexander Prass and Gregoritsch both played pivotal roles before Bayern Munich star Gregoritsch was denied by Gunok who made an incredible save similar to Gordon Banks’ iconic stop against Pele at 1970 World Cup.
