Turkey had a disappointing start to their Euro 2016 campaign losing 1-0 to Croatia at the Parc des Princes.
The manner in which Turkey conceded the only goal of the game sparked a social media storm thanks to the farcical behaviour of Ozan Tufan.
The 21-year-old holding midfielder was filmed sorting out his hair instead of busting a guy to close down Luka Modric who scored from a volley just outside the penalty area.
We took a look at the reaction to the ‘hair incident’ on social media.
If you haven’t seen the incident yet here it is in all its glory.
Tufan was mocked across social media becoming the subject of MEME’s and caricatures.

The hair incident did not go down well with this tweeter.

Tufan was met with shock and dismay.
Just rewatched Modric goal… On the action, instead of running on the ball, Ozan Tufan was arranging his hair… Ahahhahaha…
What a joke!

Tufan made a name for all the wrong reasons yesterday.

Lowest point wasn't even losing and playing bad. It is OZAN TUFAN TRENDING for fixing his hair when Modric scored! https://t.co/pr5UFMfFP3

There were however, a few fans who defended him claiming that Tufan had been made into a scapegoat for what was in all honesty a poor performance from the entire team.
Not surprised Ozan Tufan got best ratings from Turkey today from neutrals. Won most tackles and played very well overall.

There were also calls for Turkish national team boss Fatih Terim to shave off his hair.
