Wesley Sneijder admits he was pleased with Burak Yilmaz scoring [divider]
Wesley Sneijder admitted that he was pleased that his Galatasaray teammate Burak Yılmaz scored in the 1-1 draw between Netherlands and Turkey.
“I was pleased that Burak Yılmaz got to score, at least it was a teammate who got the goal,” Sneijder was quoted as saying by Fanatik.
The Netherlands international captain played a key role in the last minute equaliser. Sneijder’s shot deflected off Huntelaar before hitting the back of the net.
The goal was enough to keep the Dutch in third-place in the Euro 2016 Group A qualifying group.
Turkey would have overtaken the Netherlands and moved into third-place had they won the game.
Turkish international Yılmaz and Sneijder are Galatasaray teammates.
Sneijder joined Galatasaray from Inter in January 2013 and has a total of 30 goals and 14 assists in 93 games for the Lions.
Yılmaz is the Lions top goal scorer this season. The 28-year-old has 17 goals and five assists in all competitions this season.
