Turkey reaches the knockout round of Euro 2024, eliminating the Czech Republic in a 2-1 win

HAMBURG, Germany (AP) — Cenk Tosun scored in stoppage time to send Turkey to the knockout stages of the European Championship with a 2-1 win over the 10-member Czech Republic on Wednesday.

Czech captain Tomas Soucek equalized in the 66th minute, canceling out Hakan Calhanoglu’s opening goal, but it was not enough to keep his team in the tournament. The Czechs had midfielder Antonin Barak sent off in the 20th minute for two bookable fouls.

The Czech Republic finished bottom of Group F behind Georgia, who surprised group winners Portugal with a 2-0 win to move into one of the top teams in third place.

Turkey finished second with six points.
