The Turkish National had an extremely cheerless EURO 2016 in a difficult group that included Croatia, Spain and Czech Republic, they secured just 3 points from 3 games. They only scored 2 goals, also they conceded 4 goals. This game will serve as a warm up game for the Turkish side before the World Cup qualifiers against Croatia on September 5th.
Meanwhile, Russian national team had an even worse time of things in France. They looked severely lacking in pace and thought in all areas of the pitch and didn’t have a single star player to call upon in their time of need. As a result, they finished the competition in group stage with just 1 point, having lost 2 matches and drew 1. Also Russian side scored only 2 goals in the competition, while they conceded 6 goals. Russia are already qualified for the 2018 FIFA World Cup being the host nation.
