Turkey beat Colombia to third place

SAINT ETIENNE: Turkey striker Okan Yilmaz, who missed a crucial penalty in Thursday's semi-final loss to France, made amends here yesterday with a late goal to earn his country third place in the Confederations Cup. 

Okan's superb 87th minute strike on top of Tuncay Sanli's third minute effort gave Turkey a 2-1 win over Colombia, the South Americans' second half score coming from Giovanni Hernandez.
