Cenk Tosun scored both goals as Turkey beat Iran 2-1 in a pre-World Cup friendly this evening.

The Everton striker showed the predatory instincts that made him one of the bright spots in an otherwise dreadful season as he got the Turks off to a great start with a goal after just six minutes.

Tosun, who is among the nominees for Champions League goal of the season, was played in by Mehmet Topal who capitalised on slack defending and buried the chance to make it 1-0.

Tosun struck again five minutes after half-time when collected Yusuf Yazici's pass and buried his shot past Alireza Beiranvand at the near post.

Ashkan Dejagah scored a consolation at the end from the spot after Omer Bayram had been sent off.
