Portugal Beat Turkey, Through To World Cup Qualifying Play-Off Final

Portugal survived a second-half fightback to beat Turkey 3-1 in Porto on Thursday and advance to the finals of the European World Cup qualifying play-offs.

First-half goals from Otavio and Diogo Jota had Portugal cruising, but Burak Yilmaz pulled one back in the second half.

The Turkey captain then missed a late penalty, and Matheus Nunes sealed Portugal’s win in stoppage time, setting up a play-off decider at home to North Macedonia next Tuesday.
