Turkish Football

Turkish club Kayserispor clinched the first title in the club’s history following a penalty shoot-out that seemed to go on forever, winning the Turkish cup final against Genclerbirligi 11-10 on penalties after 120 minutes of goalless action. It took 28 penalties in all to decide the winner, a result which saw Kayserispor qualify for the UEFA Cup for the second time. Genclerbirligi were also involved in the longest penalty shoot-out in the history of European football in 1996. The club from Ankara won a cup match against Galatasaray 17-16 after 34 penalty kicks.
