Turks Abroad: The War Bull Strikes For Everton, Arsenal Star Break Eric Cantona’s Record

Cenk Tosun

In case you are wondering who the heck the ‘War Bull’ is well it is a literal translation of the Everton star’s name from Turkish to English. Well if you wanted to be pedantic it is War (Cenk) Young Bull (Tosun) but anyway back to the football. It appears being dropped for four games did Tosun the world of good. After scoring his first Everton goal against Burnley last week he netted again against Brighton on Saturday, this time it actually secured all three points. The 26-year-old paid his respects to the goal provider Leighton Baines by shining his shows as part of an elaborate goal celebration. To-rrific stuff!

Cengiz Under – Roma

The boy wonder did not add to his goal or assist tally but could so easily have as Roma ran riot against Torino, winning the game 3-0. Under created two goal scoring opportunities. He also made the highest number of successful dribbles (2) as we have come to expect from the Turkey international.

Mesut Ozil – Arsenal

Ozil provided his 50th assist for Arsenal, setting up Shkodran Mustafi with the opener in the 3-0 win over Watford. The playmaker of Turkish origin broke Eric Cantona’s record as becoming the fastest player to reach 50 assists in the Premier League. Oh and it was also Arsenal’s 1000th goal at home. Not a bad days work!

Caglar Soyuncu – Freiburg

The Freiburg ace put on yet another stellar defensive display helping his side keep a clean sheet on the road against Hertha Berlin. Soyuncu’s stats made impressive reading making four interceptions and five clearances.
