Turkey lost their opening Euro 2016 match against Croatia 1-0 at the Parc des Princes in Group D yesterday.

The game featured two players from Barcelona on opposing sides – Rakitic for Croatia and Arda Turan for Turkey.

The Turkish international winger started but did not exactly put on his best performance.

We took a look at fans reactions to his display on Twitter after the game.

There was some excitement at the prospect of Group D pitching several Barcelona players against one another.

Barcelona fans were full of good luck messages before the game.

And it looked to be an interesting match up between Turan and his Croatia opponents.

Turan went into the game having been involved in 9 goals in his last 11 games for Turkey and having created the most chances for his side.

Turan did not however, deliver on the pitch.

Most of these reactions were actually pretty tame.


Turan was also criticised for spending too much time filming promotional videos instead of training.
