Troms° triumphant in Istanbul
Thursday, 29 September 2005

Troms° IL staged a UEFA Cup upset as they completed a 2-1 aggregate victory against Turkish giants Galatasaray SK with a 1-1 draw in Istanbul to claim their place in the group stage.

Bernier boost
The Tippeligaen side travelled to Istanbul with a one-goal lead from the first leg a fortnight ago but Patrice Bernier's first-half strike changed the face of the tie and despite Hakan ŞŘkŘr's second-half goal for Galatasaray, it was Troms° who achieved a famous triumph.

Attacking intent
The visitors started positively with Lars Iver Strand testing Colombian goalkeeper Faryd Mondragˇn inside three minutes and it was clear Troms° were not content to try and absorb the inevitable pressure. The Norwegian side suffered a setback on ten minutes when defender Morten Pedersen went off injured, which seemed to give the Turkish side a sudden boost in confidence.

Hirschfeld heroics
Lars Hirschfeld had to be on his toes to save a Necati Ates drive, while ▄mit Karan was also denied thanks to fine work from the Troms° custodian. ▄mit then hit the post on 22 minutes with a powerful shot and just seven minutes later Marek Heinz also struck the frame of the goal. But with 33 minutes on the clock the Norwegian side took the lead against the run of play as Bernier drilled a shot unerringly into the net from the edge of the penalty area.

Substitute strikes
Galatasaray came out for the second half with renewed vigour and Necati Ates and Hasan Sas both went close. The home side threw men forward and with 13 minutes remaining Hakan SŘkŘr, a first-half substitute, latched onto Sabri Sarıoglu's cross to give the Turkish team late hope.

Hasan Sas effort
Troms°'s defending became more and more desperate and with two minutes left Benjamin Kibebe gave away a free-kick in a dangerous position, but Hasan Sas fired his effort straight at Hirschfeld and the Norwegian side were through.

Julian De Guzman plays for Deportivo.

"I am happy the side survived, because this team is the shining jewel in a city that is symbolic of culture, politeness and civility. I hoped with all my heart that Parma would stay in Serie A, for this outfit and all of Italian football.

Disregard the last post, I just remembered its Jonathan on Feyenoord not Julian.
