Xherdan Shaqiri rescued Switzerland's Euros with two goals – and added to his Liverpool transfer value.
The 29-year-old produced a brilliant performance to leave Turkey pointless, netting a cracker with his weaker foot, and a second crisp finish after the break.
Shaqiri is out of favour at Anfield and could be sold by Jurgen Klopp to raise funds, and his double will attract plenty of interest.
He kept up a remarkable record of scoring in the last four major championships, and it should be enough to grab a third place spot in the last 16. He's netted seven times at the last two World Cups and two Euros.
Shaqiri said: “The first with my right was very good technique! We needed to win. We reacted so well to the previous games to keep us going.
Xherdan Shaqiri scored a sensational second
“We played like a unit and we knew if we played good we would create chances and we did. We scored.”
Haris Seferovic scored with Switzerland's first attack, and Xherdan Shaqiri added a second before 26 minutes were up.
Benfica striker Seferovic took advantage of the Turks backing off and drilled in a low shot from distance.
Shaqiri was on fire. He collected a pass from Seferovic, skipped to the right into space and curled into the top corner giving Ugurcan Cakir no chance.
He could have has a second when through on goal but Cakir got a boot to his side foot. Leicester's Soyuncu was having a nightmare, pulled around and with no protection.
Turkey clawed a goal back, their first of the tournament, another spectacular effort, thanks to Irfan Can Kahveci, who curled left footed into the top corner.
But Shaqiri crashed home again after 68 minutes finishing a swift break and giving Steve Zuber a hat-trick of assists in the game, only the third time that's been done in the Euro finals.
