Arda Turan is going to be a big miss for Turkey against Netherlands says Burak Yilmaz [divider]
Turkish international striker Burak Yılmaz revealed that the absence of Arda Turan is going to be a big miss against Netherlands.
Turkey take on Netherlands in a Euro 2016 group stage qualifier on March 28.
“Arda is a key player in the team, he is going to be a big miss for us but I still believe we can win,” Yılmaz was quoted as saying by Eurosport TR.
Turan is suspended after picking up a booking in the Kazakhstan game for simulation. The 28-year-old is one of the most experienced players in the Turkish national team.
The Netherlands are currently third in Euro 2016 qualification Group A with six points from four games, while Turkey sit fourth with four points after four games.
Bayer Leverkusen star Hakan Çalhanoğlu has returned to the national team for the first time since his altercation with Gökhan Töre last year.
Yılmaz has a total of 17 goals in all competitions for Galatasaray this season. The 29-year-old striker has 15 goals in 37 international games for Turkey.
