Turkey has a large number of fans among its expatriate workers in Germany and so the Turkish national team will draw great crowds at home and on the road when it plays the Germans.
“I am neither shocked nor pleased. Logistically, it’s not going to be simple,” Germany coach Joachim Löw said of the long trips to Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan. “It’s a German-speaking group with many German coaches.” Azerbaijan is coached by former Germany boss Berti Vogts, while Kazakhstan’s coach is also a German, Bernd Storck.

Deivson Bobo grabbed the second in the 79th minute, substitute Filip Holosko made it 3-1 two minutes later and Rodrigo Tabata sealed matters three minutes from time.
