Turkey are set to play their opening Euro 2016 fixture this Sunday, a potentially tricky match as they have to face the dangerous Croatia side.
The Crescent-Stars’ head coach, Fatih Terim was not shy on admitting that he has nothing but respect for Croatia, but Turkey will not be targeting any other than victory on that tie.
Terim stated that his side’s ambition to get through into the second round as it will sent strong messages for every one else and in that stage they practically can go places.
The former AC Milan tactician also stated that he will still count a lot on Arda Turan, although the midfielder didn’t get much playing time with Barcelona this past season.
Moreover, Terim also has high home for talented 18-year-old Emre Mor, who the coach expected to learn a lot from participating in this big tournament.
Probable Turkey line up against Croatia:
Volkan Babacan(gk); Gökhan Gönül, Mehmet Topal, Hakan Balta, Caner Erkin(def); Ozan Tufan, Selçuk İnan; Volkan Şen, Hakan Çalhanoğlu, Arda Turan(mid); Burak Yılmaz(att)
