WEST HAM Academy goalkeeper Deniz Mehmet helped his country book a place in the second round of the FIFA under-17 World Cup as Turkey thumped Costa Rica 4-1 in their second group match.
Having already beaten Burkino Faso 1-0 in their opening game, the victory in the clash with Costa Rica earned Mehmet (left) and his team a place in the second round with a game to spare.
The Turks will now take on the United Arab Emirates in the last 16 today (Wednesday) with the winners playing Argentina or Colombia in the quarter-finals.
MEANWHILE, Robert Hall was also doing his bit as England's under-17 side booked their place in the elite qualifying round of the European Championships with three straight wins in Azerbaijan.

The 16-year-old came off the bench to score two goals in the opening 6-2 thrashing of Kazakhstan, and that was enough to earn him a start in the 4-0 thumping of hosts Azerbaijan.
England completed their qualifying group on Saturday with a 1-0 victory over Serbia, though Hall was back on the bench.
