SUNDAY 13 OCTOBER: Ogün Gümüstas and his Turkey U19 side have qualified for the Second Qualifying Round for the 2014 UEFA Under-19 Championship after their 3-1 win over Republic of Ireland in Slovenia saw them win Group 5. Gümüstas played for a little under an hour (6.6) in the match, but didn’t have a hand in the goals.
The First Qualifying Round group winners and runners-up from all twelve groups progress through to the next phase, a second round-robin qualifying phase to be held in May next year. Eventually those seven group winners join host nation Hungary in next July’s tournament.
Next Saturday’s Nürnberg v. Dortmund Bundesliga match has been brought forward to the Friday evening for live broadcast. BVB will receive approximately £40,000 in television money for the match.
