The highly rated 21-year-old Under, who has caught the eye several times with Roma in Serie A, put Turkey further ahead 10 minutes later with a fine finish.

Turkey moved atop its European Championship qualifying group by dominating World Cup victor France in a 2-0 home victory on Saturday.

Of the 11 players who started France's 2018 World Cup Final win over Croatia, nine begun the match in Turkey.

"We need a reaction as soon as possible, from the next match [against Andorra]".

The win, which came as a result of first-half goals from Kaan Ayhan and Cengiz Under, saw in-form Turkey continue their 100 percent record in Group H of Euro 2020 qualifiers at the expense of Didier Deschamps' World Cup winners in the Torku Arena - and afterwards, France-based fans of the Turkish national team made sure their voices were heard.

"When you have a performance like that, there are no positives to take", the France coach was quoted as saying by L'Equipe.

Pogba claims he can not recall a time when his side struggled to make an impact on a game in such a manner, telling L'Equipe following the game: "We were ready, we knew it was going to be a high -evel match and that the fans would be pushing them [Turkey] on".

"We did not turn up and even if we are world champions, if we play like that we have no hope".

The defeat leaves the losing Euro 2016 finalists level with Iceland on six points.

Italy continued their flawless start to qualifying with a comfortable 3-0 win over Greece in Athens, which sent them three points clear at the top of Group J. "We are all looking forward to Jogi's return", Sorg told broadcaster RTL.

"As soon as we concede an opportunity, it's a goal".

Norwich City striker Teemu Pukki struck both goals inside 12 second-half minutes, striding through the visiting defense to open the scoring before adding the second with a delicate chip.

The Italians next play Bosnia-Herzegovina, who fell 2-0 to Finland, in Turin tomorrow, while Greece play Armenia, who beat Liechtenstein 3-0.
