There was a lot of talk about potential crowd trouble before the game but there were hardly any major incidents. In fact as this tweet shows the fans got along quite well. We were at the game and can confirm that there was no problems before, during or afterwards.
Harry Kane scored the opener for England but as the replays show it was clearly offside.
Terim was not amused.

The England defending leading up to Turkey’s equaliser did not go down well.
Ah. England 1-1 Turkey.
Hodgson's men can't defend. Chill out on the hype.

Did not go down well at all.

Vardy won England a penalty but there were a number of fans and pundits that thought he took a dive.
>Great dive by Vardy 9/10

Despite being outnumbered the Turkish fans created a raucous atmosphere making their voices heard loud and clear.
England fans did not seem very connived with their sides performance after the game.
Apparently we are the fourth favourites to win the Euro's. I don't even think we're fourth favourite to win this match #EngvTur

Turkish fans were generally not too dissatisfied. It was a decent performance away to England especially when you consider Harry Kane’s goal should not have stood.
England 2 – 1 Turkey, good performance overall, still need to work on defending set pieces! pic.twitter.com/iEqiuB4h1k
