Turkey's amputee football national team advanced to the European finals late Sunday, defeating Poland 2-0.

Istanbul hosts this year's European Amputee Football Championship, organized by European Amputee Football Federation (EAFF).

The two goals were scored by Rahmi Özcan and Serkan Dereli.

Turkey faces England on Monday, October 9 at 7:00 pm at Beşiktaş's Vodafone Park. The final match will be free to public.

The team defeated Russia 2-1 in the quarterfinals Saturday.

Turkey ranked second at the EAFF European Championship in 2004 and 2008, and third at the World Championship in 2007.

The amputee football national team is part of the Turkish Disabled Sports Federation, supported by the Turkish Football Federation's "Turkey Plays Football" program.
