Turkey began the defence of their International Blind Sports Federation (IBSA) European Football Championships title in style as they thrashed Belgium 7-0 in Berlin.

The 2015 winners were in ominous form as they comfortably beat a hapless Georgian side at the Lilli-Henoch-Sportplatz in the German capital.

The result was not enough for Turkey to move into first place as Spain swept aside Georgia 8-0 in today's other Group B encounter.

Antonio Martin was the star performer for Spain as he scored four in a domiant outing for his nation.

Hosts Germany also won on the second day of the tournament as they cruised to a 6-0 victory over Italy in a match which was postponed yesterday.

Germany had a 2-0 lead when play resumed but quickly added another four goals to earn a comfortable win in their Group A opener.

A severe thunderstorm forced organisers to suspend the match last night.

After an interruption due to adverse weather, IBSA and tournament organisers decided the Group A clash should be completed first thing this morning.

Romania, England and France are the other teams which make up Group A.

The top two countries in each group will reach the last four before the final on August 26.

Every match will be broadcast live on the internet via YouTube.

A purpose-built arena has been constructed in Berlin for the tournament, which is being organised by the German Sports Federation for Persons with Disabilities and the Berlin Disability Sports Association.

The tournament continues tomorrow with four matches.

Italy play Romania and France face Germany in Group A.

Russia are in action against Turkey and Belgium entertain Georgia.
