Euro 2024: Czech Republic vs Turkey-Match Report



In a dramatic showdown at Euro 2024, Turkey overcame a resilient Czech Republic side 2-1 to secure their place in the Round of 16.

The match, notable for its intensity and disciplinary incidents, saw Turkey advance with a late, decisive goal by Cenk Tosun.

The game started with fireworks as Antonín Barák received two quick yellow cards, leaving the Czechs with ten men early on.

Despite their numerical advantage, Turkey struggled to find their rhythm in the first half, failing to register a single shot on target.

The breakthrough came in the second half when Hakan Çalhanoglu unleashed a powerful strike, giving Turkey the lead.

However, the Czechs fought back courageously, equalizing through Tomás Soucek’s goal, setting up a tense finale.

As both teams pushed for a winner, tempers flared, resulting in a record 18 cards (16 yellows, 2 reds), the highest in European Championship history.

Turkey maintained their composure and, in stoppage time, substitute Cenk Tosun clinched victory with a clinical finish.

Turkey’s victory sets up a Round of 16 clash against Austria, with Vincenzo Montella’s team aiming to replicate their historic 2008 semi-final run.

Despite their disciplinary challenge, Turkey’s resilience and attacking prowess make them a formidable opponent in the knockout stages.
