Turkey's dreams of participating in the FIFA 2018 World Cup were crushed after they suffered a 3-0 defeat against Iceland at Yeni Eskisehir Stadium in northwestern Turkey on Friday evening.

Iceland lead 2-0 at halftime thanks to goals from Johann Gudmundsson and Birkir Bjarnason.

Iceland scored another goal in the 49th minute from a corner kick to secure a 3-0 lead. Kari Arnason was the scorer.

Turkey, which once finished third at the 2002 World Cup, will now miss the global tournament for a fourth time in a row.
