Turkey Euro 2016 Team Squad Roster
Europe has witnessed some extraordinary displays from some underachieving teams so far with three new teams making a debut into the competition with a potential to go even further. Sadly, Turkey hasn’t been much of the talking point so far and they would certainly try to improve their form and give it their all for good performance in the finals.

Turkey has the potential, but his fact is they are not delivering enough of what is needed. The coach needs to address this and make use of their excellent stars like Nuri Sahin and skipper Arda Turan. Still a strong side in the competition, this European force will have to do a lot better to hope for something beyond the quarter finals. They really need to show the desire!
