A hat-trick and an assist from new Barcelona Signing helped decapitate 10 man Turkey at Johann Cruijff Area. And also to go top of the Table of their World Cup Qualifying Group.
Turkey’s Caglar Soyuncu was sent off the pitch and the Netherlands showed no mercy.. Memphis set up Klaassen in the 59th Second of the game and it was 1-0 for the Dutch.
Cengiz Under profited from a defensive mistake to net a consolation, but only after substitutes Guus Til and Donyell Malen had added their names to the scoresheet in an emphatic victory for Louis van Gaal’s men.
Turkey had gone unbeaten in their first five games to lead the way at the top of Group G but were behind in Amsterdam within a minute when Klaassen played a one-two with Depay and slotted in off the post.
The pair linked up again as Klaassen flicked a return pass into the path of Depay, who kept his composure to tuck the ball away from Ugurcan Cakir and put the Netherlands well on course for an eighth straight home win.
Turkey found themselves three goals down with seven minutes of the first half still to play – Depay dinking the ball down the middle from the penalty spot after Soyuncu tripped Klaassen in the box.
Soyuncu was booked for that challenge and was issued another yellow card eight minutes later for a foul Depay, who completed his first international hat-trick early in the second half.
Feyenoord midfielder Til spun his marker and blasted in his maiden Netherlands goal and fellow substitute Malen rolled a sixth into an empty net, rendering Under’s late tap-in nothing but a consolation on a night to forget for Turkey. Credits: Besoccer.com
