Tosun double gives Turkey morale-boosting win over Sweden

Cenk Tosun was in brilliant form for Turkey, scoring both goals in a morale-boosting 2-1 victory over fellow Euro 2016 qualifiers Sweden at the Antalya Stadium on Thursday.

The Besiktas striker hit the target with a left-foot strike after 32 munutes when midfielder Ozan Tufan put him through with a headed assist.

Sweden then took control in the second half to earn a deserved 74th minute equaliser from Andreas Granqvist, who scored from close range.

Both sides had their chances to earn a winner but it was Tosun who proved the decisive figure nine minutes from time, heading home Selcuk Inan’s cross to leave the visiting goalkeeper Robin Olsen helpless.
