Turkey Advances to Euro 2024 Quarter-Finals with Dramatic Last-Minute Victory over Austria

Vincenzo Montella’s Young Turks have advanced to the quarter-finals in the Euros after a thrilling night. Turkey’s 3-1 victory over Austria was secured by two crucial goals from defender Merit Demiral and a last-minute save by goalkeeper Mert Gunok. With the second-youngest squad at the tournament, the team displayed remarkable resilience, especially after a previous 6-1 friendly defeat to Austria that led to calls for Montella’s dismissal. Turkey’s passionate fan support was also noteworthy and played a pivotal role in the team’s performance.

Despite the pressure from Austria, Turkey’s skill and determination were evident throughout the match. Austria, on the other hand, faced a tough battle, unable to secure a victory in the knockout stages since the 1954 World Cup. Despite numerous close chances, they were ultimately unable to break through the solid Turkish defense. Turkey sealed their victory with a third goal just before the hour mark, followed by a late response from Austria.

The match ended with Austria’s last attempt denied by an impressive save from the Turkish goalkeeper, securing a well-deserved victory for Montella’s team.
