Terim speaks ahead of Turkey v Kazakhstan game

Turkish national team Fatih Terim

Fatih Terim spoke at a pre-match press conference ahead of Turkey’s Euro 2016 qualification clash against Kazakhstan.

“According to the medical, everybody currently in the squad is fit and ready to play,” Terim stated.

“Against Kazakhstan tomorrow we will start with the following 11 players, Volkan, Caner, Semih, Serdar Aziz, Gökhan Gönül, Selçuk, Ozan, Olcay, Arda, Volkan Şen and Burak.


“Kazakhstan are a physical side and will be a danger from set pieces. The Turkish national team should be able to win convincingly tomorrow. 

When asked about the heavy defeat against Brazil on Wednesday Terim said, “We have to keep our heads held high. Nobody embarrassed themselves.

“The important question is, how can we bring our national team back on its feet. One 3-0 victory will not save us, nor will a 4-0 defeat finish us.”

Turkey are currently last in Group A with one point after three games. The Crescent-Stars have lost two and drawn just one of their last three qualification games.
