Turkey Form & Team News

Turkey are the 32nd placed team in the FIFA rankings. The Senol Guines managed squad are playing the World Cup qualifiers on the back of their relegation from the UEFA Nations League. They are part of Group G in the 2022 World Cup Qualifiers. Turkey have not won more than 2 games in the last ten matches across competitions which states their present form which is of course not that great. At Home However, the record is slightly better comparatively. The Turks in turn have a dubious record where the only World Cup they managed to qualify in 2002 resulted in them finishing in the 3rd place overall. They have since then not managed to qualify for the elite tournament and would dearly want to end that streak and earn a ticket for Qatar 2022 with some wins in these Qualifiers.

The squad consists of good strikers like Cenk Tosun, Burak Yilmaz and Kenan Karaman. In the midfield Hakan Calhanglu will lead the charge with Yusuf Yazici and co, The Defence has the likes of Merih Demiral and Ozan Kabak among the others. Karaman had already netted two goals in the 2020 UEFA Nations League leading the goal scoring charts. The AC Milan midfielder, Calhanoglu also created two goal-scoring opportunities in that tournament scoring one goal and assisting on one occasion.

The Dutch are also on a five-match unbeaten streak which in the last two matches saw two convincing victories against Poland and Bosnia. The Netherlands who played the world cup for three consecutive editions finishing the 2010 world cup as Runners Up and a semifinal finish in 2014, would want to erase the ghosts of 2018 qualifying and start afresh in their quest for Qatar 2022 qualification. 

The Frank De Boer squad consists of some modern-day club superstars in Memphis Depay in the strike force, with the likes of Steven Bergwijn and the Doneyll Malan all in the mix of things. They can boast of one of the best midfield going around right now with the likes of Frenkie De Jong, Donny Van De Beek and Georginio Wijnaldum all in the squad. Juventus superstar Centre back Matthis De Ligt, Daley Blind of Ajax, Patrick Van of Crystal Palace complete the defender’s list. Wijnaldum finished with three goals in the Nations League last year with a couple of goals from Memphis Depay as well.
