Turkey manager Fatih Terim has named a strong side for tonights friendly with Austria.

The Crescent-Stars beat Sweden 2-1 on Thursday in the  first of their Euro 2016 warm up games with a brace from Besiktas striker Cenk Tosun.

Arda Turan has been included in the starting line-up against Austria in tonight’s international friendly.

Cenk Tosun has kept his place in the Terim’s strongest eleven after scoring brace against Sweden over the weekend.

The experienced manager has decided to experiment in defence by fielding Ahmet Çalık and Mehmet Topal in central defensive positions.

Turkey will extend their unbeaten run to 13 games if they avoid defeat to the Austrians this evening.
