Shortly after the break, the Turks surprised their helpless rivals again.

Hakan Calhanoglu went on the scoresheet with a superb long-range strike. The Dutch succeeded in the 75th minute as they didn’t let up and were looking to score. Davy Klaassen introduced a moment earlier, beat the Turkish goalkeeper.

The visitors attacked with full force and it was already 3:2 after a while, this time goal was scored by Luuk de Jong. Putting everything on one card did not work. All because of the great Yilmaz on Wednesday.

With a beautiful free-kick, the 35-year-old striker scored his third goal. In the very end, the Dutch could have reduced the loss, but Memphis Depay did not use the penalty kick.
