Next Match

The National Team of Georgia lost for the first time in this year after a weak performance.

In the fifth official match between Turkey and Georgia, the caucasians looked pretty unorganized in the first half, unusual since Temur Ketsbaia arrived as head coach of the team.

The first 45 minutes were completelly dominated by the turkish players, that's why they scored twice and went to the locker rooms with a comfortable advantage on they're side. But after the key and place movements in the second half the georgians looked more aggresive and scored in the 51th minute after 5 minutes of pressing and attacking pretty strong. After that georgian attacks became more and more dangerous for the red shirted turkish defenders.

Georgians wasted a few interesting opportunities, but not the turkish players, they achieved to score from the penalty spot at the 82th minute after a clear hand play by Murtaz Daushvili inside the area and extinguished any hopes for the crusaders.
