France denied early Euro 2020 qualification with Turkey draw

Turkey’s Kaan Ayhan equalised eight minutes from time after France substitute Olivier Giroud opened the scoring.

The visitors stayed top of Group H with 19 points from eight games, ahead of Les Bleus by virtue of a 2-0 win in Konya last June.

Iceland are third on 15 points after goals by Arnor Sigurdsson and Kolbeinn Sigthorsson earned a 2-0 home win over Andorra.

Albania are fourth on 12 points following a 4-0 away win against Moldova.

French police were on high alert after President Emmanuel Macron said Turkey’s military operation against Kurdish forces in Syria could lead to an “unbearable humanitarian situation”.

Macron also said the operation threatened to “help the Islamic State group re-emerge in the region” but the evening went off without any notable incident.
