Georgia take second place from Turkey

Turkey 0-1 Georgia
An own goal on 50 minutes gave Georgia victory and took them above their hosts into second place in Group 2.

Georgia put themselves in contention for a UEFA European Under-21 Championship play-off place after taking second place off Turkey in Group 2.

The decisive moment came on 50 minutes when Hasan Ali Kaldırım's back pass eluded Turkey goalkeeper Özkan Karabulut and rolled into his own net. Georgia move two points ahead of Turkey and will make sure of second position behind Switzerland with a draw against Armenia on Tuesday, though they need a win to have a realistic chance of reaching the play-offs as one of the four best runners-up. Turkey play the Republic of Ireland in their last qualifier.
