90+1' 

We are into four minutes of time added on. Turkey on the verge of qualifying automatically as the third best side.

89'

87' 

Árnason deemed to have fouled Umut Bulut. And Turkey have a free-kick here coming up from 25 yards.

The Dutch have scored again against the Czech Republic in Amsterdam. They now trail 3-2 in the match against the 10-men visiting side. Van Persie this time at the right end.

Kjartansson take over from Bödvarsson for Iceland. A draw wouldn't be a bad result for them to finish.

79' 

Fatih Terim looks a bit perplexed on the side of the pitch here, but he can't have any complaints really. Turkey needing to get the job done with 10 men.

77' 

Turkey will now need to get the job done with only 10 men. Iceland might fancy a win themselves on the night.

76'

76'

46'

Off we go then for the second half. Iceland gets the ball rolling in the second half.

35'  

Iceland with every player behind the ball to defend their half. Not easy for the home team to find space.

11'

10' 
9' 

Visitors have certainly made a bright start here as they bid to finish the campaign as group winners.

8'

6'  
5'  

As we stand, Turkey are going into the play-offs, but only five minutes gone so far of this match. Plenty of time for all that to change.

Oğuzhan Özyakup has a shot blocked after a lovely little pass from Arda Turan. Iceland doing well to halt that effort from distance.

3' 

Volkan Babacan comes off his line to collect the ball early on before launching it long. The visiting side look pretty fast on the break.

Third in the section, Turkey lead the fourth-placed Netherlands by two points and also boast a superior head-to-head record. They need a win or a draw to guarantee third position and cause the Oranje to miss their first UEFA EURO finals since 1984.

Iceland and the Czech Republic, who finish in the Netherlands, have qualified, with the former leading the way by a point. With their head-to-head records identical – both sides won 2-1 at home – Iceland (+12) have the edge on the Czechs (+4) on goal difference in the event of the teams finishing level on points.

"I told my players that collecting four points would guarantee a play-off spot and I won't accept any excuses for a failure to do so," said Turkey manager Fatih Terim before winning 2-0 in the Czech Republic. They only need one more point then to reach their destination.
