As Turkey vs Wales Highlights is online, as the match concluded with the victory of Turkey with 2-0 at Samsun yeni 19 Mayis Stadyumu. Wales defeat against turkey made them a difficult stage for them on Euro 2024 qualifications round is on ropes. It was the efforts of Umut Nayir and Arda Guler scored twice in eight minutes gap on the last moments of the match.

But the turning point in the game came just before half-time when Joe Moroell was given a straight red card for a high challenge on Ferdi Kadioglu, despite the Wales player getting a touch on the ball. Kazakhstan had victory over North Macedonia with 1-0 on Euro 2024 qualifiers on today’s meetings.
Turkey dominated the game and the defeat leaving Wales second from bottom in their group and will be facing a tough challenge to reach for Playoff to qualify for Euro 2024 next summer.
“The sending off changes it completely, and I just made my feelings clear to the group: I’m proud of my players for their effort,” Wales manager Rob Page said after the game. “But they shouldn’t had to put in a shift like that with ten men. Armenia had victory over Wales with 4-2 in the Euro 2024 qualifiers on June 20, 2023.
“We should have been disciplined enough to keep 11 players on the pitch.” It is the second game in which Wales have picked up red cards, with Kieffer Moore seeing red for an altercation with the Armenia goalkeeper during Friday’s 4-2 loss in Cardiff.
“Kieffer had fallen for it on Friday, the goalkeeper knew what he was doing,” added Page. “We have to learn from it. They’re good at the dark arts and we’ve got to know not to retaliate. “It’s frustrating, it’s been a really disappointing camp. But we look forward to picking up as many points as we can.”
Robbie Earnshaw said, “To be honest, Rob Page called his players to produce a performance the fans could be proud of and they didn’t produce it. “It’s a 2-0 that could’ve been a 3-0 or a 4-0. The disappointment for me is I’m not seeing what I expect to see from a Wales team. Denmark had the victory over Northern Ireland with 1-0 in Euro 2024 qualifiers on friday’s meetings.
“The players are giving everything but I was expecting more in terms of controlling the game. They didn’t do that. They sat back and waited for Turkey to pop in their goals. Defensively, Wales just look so open.
“Four goals conceded against Armenia and it could’ve been another four [on Monday]. Tactically, they’ve been very poor.
“It’s a team in transition with all the retirements and the absence of Gareth Bale but we have to adapt. When I was in the team taking over from the Gary Speeds and the Chris Colemans, there were changes made because we needed to get better. “Right now, I’m struggling to see where we’re getting better because our game is very similar and we’re getting punished for it.”
Rob Page on post-match interview
Rob Page said, “To come to Turkey with 11 men is a difficult challenge anyway. Before the sending off, I thought we played really well. Defensively we had a plan going into it and the boys were excellent and we stuck to it. After the red card, we just had to defend the box and frustrate them. And we did until we got the goal.
“I thought we played really well with the ball. We got the two eights on the ball – Harry Wilson and Aaron Ramsey – and really posed a threat. Our final ball when we get in those pockets can improve but that’s a work in progress.
It’s a great finish, the second goal. The first one, Wardy gets a hand to it. But when he saved the penalty, I thought it was going to be our night to dig deep, defend the box, take the point to go home.
“It wasn’t to be. They knew they what they were doing, putting fresh players on to win them the game.”
