Turkey have a star in Arda Guler but they can't rely on stunning solo strikes and open goals to avoid familiar Euros embarrassment.

Guler, the 19-year-old talent at Real Madrid, added to Mert Muldur's superb volley with a perfect long-range curler to help his country to a crucial opening-game victory, their first in six attempts.

The pressure was on Turkey to deliver against Georgia - making their debut in the European Championships - after three defeats at a miserable Euro 2020 campaign. Dortmund's Signal Iduna Park was dominated by expectant Turks.

Turkey had more possession, racked up 22 shots, had an xG of 2.70 and created five big chances yet still they were lucky to escape with three points.

Georgia had five big chances too, hit the woodwork twice and were the forehead of Orkun Kokcu away from scoring a 97th-minute equaliser. Instead, Turkey ran the ball into an open goal at the other end.
