Euro 2021 : Turkey Ready For Tough Opening Test Against Italy

Turkey continued their training preparations on the eve of their Euro 2020 opener against Italy in Rome.

Turkey face Italy, Wales and Switzerland in Group-A and are led by Captain Burak Yilmaz who played a key role in lille winning their first french Ligue 1 title in 10 years this season.

Coach Senol Gunes, who oversaw Turkey's 2002 World Cup campaign where they finished in an unexpected third-place finish, said it was a game the World was interested to see.

Gunes also believes that having players such as Midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu playing in the Italian serie a with AC Milan, won't give his side any advantages, while he praised italy's collective team play.

He further said they have players who play in the Italian League, so they know how it functions here, they know the order of the teams.
