Fans react to Ozan Tufan ‘fixing his hair’ instead of defending Modric goal

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.

There were so many hair jokes.

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

Tufan was met with shock and dismay.

Tufan made a name for all the wrong reasons yesterday.

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.

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