Turkey expresses gratitude to Armenia

The Turkish press has thanked Armenia for its national football squad’s 2-1 defeat of Bulgaria in Friday’s 2014 World Cup qualifier penultimate group match. 

Due to this defeat, Bulgaria remain second in Group B, with 13 points, thus having the worst record from among the current second-place teams in the nine European groups. 

Turkey, on the other hand, are second in Group D, with 16 points.

To note, fifty-three European nations are competing for thirteen spots to the 2014 World Cup finals. The nine group winners will automatically book their spot at Brazil 2014, whereas the eight second-place national squads with the best records will face one another in a knockout phase for the remaining four spots. 

The Armenian national team presented a gift to Turkey, writes CNN Turk news agency of Turkey, and Aksam daily of Turkey expresses Armenia gratitude for it.
