2002 World Cup -- Road to The Final Brazil Stay The Course

Wednesday, June 26th

Brazil vs Turkey
Saitama --  (1-0)

Brazil's first attack came when Lúcio was released down the right by Kléberson, in the second minute.

Marcos had to punch an Emre free-kick away in the 10th minute, which brought a chorus of "Turk-iy-e" from the Turkish fans.

Marcos then had to react well to push away an Alpay header, for a corner, in the 20th minute.... as Turkey showed they were prepared to take the game to Brazil.

The four-times World Champions felt they had to attack more. Rivaldo threaded the ball through to Ronaldo, who passed to Cafu on the right of the Turkish area.... but Rustu kept out the shot with his foot and it sailed over the bar.

Then Roberto Carlos, on the left, missed a chance with his right foot... and shortly after Ronaldo was on hand, in the six-yard box, to try and poke in a rebound -- after Rustu failed to hold a fierce drive from outside the area.

The game had started to liven up..... and with all the attacking Brazil were doing, Hasan Sas found plenty of space to run down the left on a counter attack, just before the half-hour.

Within minutes, Rivaldo had a couple more chances to take the lead in the Golden Boot charts..... but Miroslav Klose could breathe a sigh of relief.

Then five minutes before half-time, Gilberto's foul on the edge of the Brazilian area gave Turkey a perfect chance to take the lead....... if Emre Belozoglu hadn't fired over the wall..... and the Brazilian bar.

Turkey had a little scare just before the break when Rustu caught a knock on the head, as he tried to bravely pounce on the loose ball for a second time.

Half-time: Brazil 0 -- Turkey 0
Brazil vs Turkey -- in the Group Stage

Leading Goalscorers -- GOAL -- 1-0
Ronaldo scored his 6th goal in this tournament, on an excellent Brazilian counter.... after Hasan Sas' cross was chested back to Marcos by Roberto Carlos..... and Brazil steamed down the left. Ronaldo picked up the ball on the edge of the Turkish area, beat Fatih Akyel and shot through low; through two other players -- 49 mins.

Substitution
Turkey needed to push forward more and brought on Ilhan Mansiz for Emre Belozoglu, with a little under half an hour to go.

Twenty minutes before the end, Rustu had to come right out of his are to deny Luizao -- fresh on for Ronaldo.

Luizao had another chance to double the score a minute later.... if only he hadn't tried to be spectacular with his sidekick.... that bounced over the bar.

After scoring the Golden Goal against Senegal, super sub Ilhan Mansiz nearly equalised for Turkey; with twelve minutes to go.

Hakan Sukur almost equalised, with ten minutes to go, as Turkey continued to spring a surprise or two -- in and around the Brazilian area.

Turkey started to lose thei cool again.... Hasan Sas in particular earning a needless booking just before the end of the game.

Brazil meet Gemany.... for the first time in a World Cup Final.

Final Score:
Brazil 1 -- Turkey 0
