In what was one of the most boring football matches ever to be played (ok, at least one of the most boring in today's round of Euro 2012 qualification, even including such pointless matches as Kazakhstan - Austria), Turkey managed a 1-0 win over Azerbaijan to claim the playoff spot in Group A.
The pivotal moment in the match turned out to be the substitution of Kazim-Kazim. The forward had been, quite frankly, crap, firing quick shots to nowhere. With his strike partner out of the way, it was time for Burak Yilmaz to shine. The Trabzonspor forward had a headed goal disallowed for offside, but just a minute later, took a through-ball around the Azerbaijan defense and easily slotted in for Turkey's only goal.
Of course, Belgium did their part in allowing the Turks to go through to the next round, falling apart at the hands of perfect group leaders Germany. Belgium managed a consolation goal late in the match, but Germany's 3-1 victory means Belgium are out.
