Each time Turkey is involved in a major tournament they cause havoc. 2002 World Cup in Japan and South Korea thanks to Haken Suker and Basturk they managed to shock the world and finish impressively third.
At Euro 2008 they also reached the semi finals after a controversial victory over Croatia in Vienna. Nihat running the strings and an unknown assassin who hails from the streets of Istanbul, who goes by the name of Arda Turan, burst onto the scenes out of nowhere, and almost helped Turkey reach the final.
Who will Be Turkey’s dangerman?
As much as I want to say Arda Turan, Hakan Calhanoglou could rise to the occasion. He’s a kid who can create play and make things happen. He is also a dead ball specialist.
The Talent Within In The Squad? Arda Turan, Gokhan Tore & Haken Calhanoglou. The CTC can help Turkey achieve brilliant things. If they can advance past Spain, Czech Republic and Cratia in Group D, they could possibly go on to win the tournament outright.
