90+6'

There's a minute left, and Turkey take the ball into Holland's half, but Holland keep coming forward. A long ball gets what is deserves, and is cleared. That's full time, and there's boos for the Dutch side and manager.

90+3' 

The ball comes to Depay on the edge of the box, and his shot flies over.

90+2'

GOAL! Netherlands 1-1 Turkey. Huntelaar scores - Sneijder has the ball on the edge of the box. He shifts it right to make room for the strike, and his shot flicks off the ball to beat Babacan.

90+1' 

More crosses, more clearances, more desperation. Huntelaar goes down in the box but the referee does not give a solitary fig. Not even one fig seed.

90' 

There will be six minutes of added time. There have been plenty of stoppages throughout the match, so there's few arguments.

88' 

The Dutch fans have started to leave as they lose hope.

87' 

More Holland pressure. Sneijder has a dig from distance and Babacan palms away. It was swerving in the air but hardly a difficult stop.

86' 

Free kick for Turkey on the right. They take their sweet, sweet time to take, and the ball goes straight out of play. Oh well!

85' 

Kazim and Gokhan swap passes on the right, but Kazim's cross is too deep, and Turkey have unsurprisingly kept their players back.

83' 

Turkey are happy to keep killing time, now.

82' 

Holland are just lumping the ball into the box, with forwards stacked up against a defensive line of Turkish players.

79' 

Narsingh drives into the box with good control, pulls the ball back for Willems, in space, and he fires a shot over.

79'

Kazim is on for Yilmaz.

77'

Indi is off for Willems.

75' 

Afellay's quick movement with his feet creates room for a cross, but it's blocked, losing its fizz. Yilmaz has gone down with a hamstring injury.

74' 

Gokhan pelts forward, cuts inside and has a shot deflected towards goal that is easily saved.

73' 

A header down for Huntlaar is volleyed miles wide. This is poor from Holland, they've no wit.

72' 

Dost gets to a cross from the right, but he glances it into the ground to leave Babacan unflustered.

71'

Sneijder hits a well struck free kick, and although it beats the 'keeper, it's just a yard wide of the top corner.

70' 

Sneijder and Depay ine up a free kick from 35 yards after a Topal foul.

69'

Van der Wiel is booked for absolutely clattering Erkin, I think. Ersan is on for Aziz

66' 

Aziz lands heavily, and is presumably winded as he takes a few minutes to get back up again. He's slow to leave the pitch, too, happy to waste time.

62'

Bas Dost is on for De Jong.

61'

Calhanoglu on for Sen. The first corner is out for a second. Sneijder again delivers, and Yilmaz heads behind.

60'

Afellay - who has done barely anything tonight - smashes a half-volley from distance that Babacan has to leap across to push away.

59' 

Willems and Dost are both warming up for Holland.

57' 

Depay has a curling shot from the edge of the box stopped by Babacan, who saw the shot coming even before it left Depays' boot.

53'

Sneijder curls in a great cross for Huntelaar, and Babacan rushes out to flap at it after clumping the striker. It comes out to Narsingh, and with little to aim at, he drags it wide.

52' 

The corner is headed away at the near post, but the Netherlands retain possession, with all of the Turkish side sitting back. Blind's pass is intercepted, and Turkey break briefly.

51' 

The ball is worked wide to the right wing, as Turkey take their time on the ball, but De Vrij seizes on the ball and hits it long for Narsingh. Topal comes across to cover and knock it behind for a corner on the right.

50' 

Another free kick for Turkey.

49' 

Gokhan's cross is cleared, but Yilmaz fires a shot wide of the top corner.

48' 

Turkey win another set piece, this time on the right wing.

46'

We go again. One change made.

45+2'

Afellay's cross fizzes past Huntelaar and everyone else, and that's it for the half. See you in 15 minutes.

45' 

There will be two minutes of added time this half.

42'

So close for Holland. The ball is whipped in, off a wall to De Vrij, and he toes an effort at goal that Babacan reaches well and palms away under pressure from Indi.

42' 

Gokhan is booked for tripping Blind as he runs down the edge of the box. It's obviously outside the area, and a free kick for Holland.

41' 

Gokhan hurls in a throw, and it's cleared by De Vrij.

39' 

Turkey have started playing with a little more confidence now. Holland have wasted their dominance of territory so far, and now concede a free kick in midfield.

37'

GOAL! Holland 0-1 Turkey. Yilmaz scores - A cross from the right is headed out by De Vrij, the ball is worked to Yilmaz on the edge of the box. He takes two toches to create some room and his shot deflects off Indi to beat Cillessen.

36' 

An even match, mainly, with Holland just shading it so far. Turkey won't be disappointed with the occasional chances they've been given. Holland have most of the ball but little defensive sense.

33' 

Topal reaches a cross into the box that is just behind him, and he hooks a looping shot over the bar.

32' 

De Jong gives away a foul in Turkey's half. It was textbook De Jong, with a sliding lunge from the side.

30' 

No clear chances for a while now. There's not much going on in the game. At least Holland don't have Van Persie slowing them down.

27' 

Another long spell of Netherlands possession ends when De Jong can't reach a ball into the box, and it drifts out for a goal kick.

25' 

More Holland possession until Sneijder is cleaned out by Topal in midfield. It wasn't that bad a challenge, but it was definitely hefty.

23'

That allows Holland to break, but Blind is tackled to stop any immediate danger. Depay then comes forward down the middle, but his shot from outside the box is aimed to the corner, and Babacan stops.

22' 

Another set piece for Turkey. Selcuk takes and it's headed away.

20' 

Erkin wins a foul in his own half after a late challenge from Afellay, who lost control of the ball. He could have been booked, but the referee settles for just a free kick.

19' 

Ozan's long range shot is well off target.

17' 

Van der Wiel receives a ball inside the full back, behind the defence, and his cross towards Huntelaar finds him offside.

16' 

An update from elsewhere.

14'

Martins Indi clears a shot off the line. Erkin steams forward down the left, pulls the ball across for Yilmaz, and the striker hooks a shot at goal that beats the 'keeper only for Indi to save the Dutch.

13' 

Sneijder finds Depay down the left. Blind beats his fullback like he did Can, but he pulls back a cross into the box that's behind everyone.

12' 

This is true.

11' 

Cillessen claims a knockdown from a Turkey free kick. Not much fun, but there you go.

9'

More possession for Holland, swapping passes on the left. Blind then tees up Sneijder on the corner of the box, and he drags a long range shot just a yard or two from goal.

7' 

Wijnaldum glances the corner wide of the far post, and the danger passes for now.

6'

Depay links up with Blind, skips into the box and lashes a shot at the far corner, and Babacan saves to push behind for a corner.

6' 

Afellay's backpass almost is intercepted, but Cillessen is out to clear up the danger.

5' 

Erkin chases a ball down the left, but it's slightly overhit and he can't get it to it.

3' 

Holland remain in control, but with about as much urgency as you would expect from a side that recently had Van Gaal in charge.

2' 

Blind whips in a cross from the left, but Babacan claims.

1'

The game gets underway with Holland in control of the ball from the start.

19:40 

I'm predicting a 1-1 result today. Please do not abuse me if I am incorrect.

19:35 

There are 10 minutes to go before kick off. If you'd like to find me on Twitter and comment throughout the game, you can do so on @lxndrnthrtn.

19:30 

Atletico Madrid's Arda Turan and his beard are out for Turkey, but otherwise they have no significant injury problems.

19:25 

The Dutch side are missing Van Persie, Robben and Vlaar. There's plenty to worry about for Holland, then, as Robben is possibly the third best player in the world right now - it's certainly close. Manchester United fans might be interested in Depay and De Vrij, and possibly Sneijder - all of whom have been linked with a move to England.

19:20 

Fatih Terim: "I always say that the Dutch team are a great team. That doesn't mean that the Turkish team is any less strong. There are a number of injuries within the Dutch team but I only feel that Robben is an important missing player. Aside from his absence I don't feel it'll be of any influence. Victory tomorrow is important to the team. The result will be of big influence on the spirit of the team. Turkey has to play against the Netherlands, Iceland, Latvia, Czech Republic and Kazakhstan. It's of vital importance that we win. The Netherlands are doing well, but they have lost against Iceland and the Czech Republic as well. In that sense we share similarities. We will see what happens tomorrow."

19:15 

Wesley Sneijder has had this to say: "I will cheer and celebrate if I score against Turkey. Although I don't know for certain yet because we will have to wait to see what kind of match it is. I expect a lot of Turkish fans but even more Dutch fans. I haven't had much contact with my Turkish team-mates; just this week, I don't need to speak to them. It's special that I've been given back the captain's armband. The low period in which I lost the armband to Robin van Persie has been put behind me."

19:10

TEAMS: Netherlands: Cillessen, Van der Wiel, De Vrij, Indi, Blind, Wijnaldum, De Jong, Sneijeder, Afelllay, Huntelaar, Depay. /// Turkey: Babacan, Gonul, Serdar Aziz, Balta, Caner, Ozan Tufan, Topal, Inan, Gokhan Tore, Burak, Volkan Sen

19:05 

Daley Blind has been discussing how his time in England has helped to improve him as a player: "`In the Premier League, you have to grow. I noticed that the rhythm of the game is much higher. The games just went much faster than in the Netherlands. That comes in handy for me in the Dutch national team, and also in my career. When you develop yourself, you can become a more complete player and that's what I want - to get better every day, to learn little things; and these should naturally be reflected in the game.''
