Hosts Turkey won the Amputee Football World Cup for the first time with a 4-1 victory over defending champions Angola in Istanbul.

Turkey had finished third at four consecutive editions of the World Cup from 2007 to 2014, then were beaten by Angola in a penalty shoot-out in the final in Guadalajara four years ago.

However, they avenged that defeat with a convincing victory over the same opposition at Galatasaray's Nef Stadium.

Ömer Güleryüz opened the scoring for Turkey, but Heno Sebastião Adão equalised to make it 1-1 at half-time.

A double from Rahmi Özcan, the first of those from the penalty spot, put Turkey in control in the second half, before Serkan Dereli provided the crowning touch on their triumph.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan presented the trophy to the winning team, and offered his congratulations on Twitter.

"I sincerely congratulate our amputee football national team, the champion of the Amputee Football World Cup, for their determined struggles, efforts and these magnificent achievements," he said.

Turkey had progressed in second place through Group A after opening with a 3-1 win against France at Fenerbahçe's Şükrü Saracoğlu Stadium, then following it with a 5-0 thrashing of Liberia and 1-1 draw against Haiti at the Turkish Football Federation Riva Facility.

They then eased past Mexico 5-0 in the round of 16, overcame Morocco 4-1 in the quarter-finals and defeated Uzbekistan 4-1 in the last four.

Angola's route to the final came after recording 4-0, 4-1 and 7-0 wins in Group F against Uruguay, Iraq and Italy respectively.

They required extra time to beat England 1-0, before ousting Brazil 2-1 in the quarter-finals and Haiti 4-2 in the semi-finals.

Uzbekistan came from a goal behind to beat Haiti 4-2 in the third-place match, helped by a hat-trick from Aziz Abdurakhmanov.
