Turkey's first major tournament with its current golden generation. Expectations higher than it usually is for Turkish sides at major tournaments.

I honestly wouldn't be surprised if they crash out in the group stage or reach the Semis or something. There's usually no in-between for us.

Certainly the most interesting group in the tournament. (IMO). Unpredictable as anyone could beat anyone. (Yes, even Italy is certainly not safe against Switzerland or Turkey). Switzerland-Turkey will most likely be a major group decider.

Technically Wales is the underdog here, and that in itself is a weird thing to say.

Does Turkey have top players currently? where do they play, I probably know only of Genkis Undar

I have big hope for Italy. Never had such a generation of talents like these days: Barella, Bastoni, Chiesa, Pellegrini, Locatelli and Donnarumma are all potential world class players. Barella already is one of them, imo.
The only problem is upfront. We don't usually score many goals, albeit we create a lot of chances per game.

It's a very strong generation of players, but the 1973-1979 age group, who formed most of the World Cup winning side in 2006, is comfortably better. Buffon, Zambrotta, Grosso, Cannavaro, Nesta, Materazzi, Gattuso, Pirlo, Camoranesi, Totti, Del Piero, Toni, Inzaghi all born within that time frame.

Am I the only mug that voted Wales to qualify? They got to the semis last time around and it'll be Bale and Ramseys last major. I think they'll qualify.

And I cannot wait till tomorrow. Italy are a dark horse for the tournament.

They've already played each other since the infamous 2006 Playoff matchup without incident. It was a one-off thing.
It wasn't. The brawl incident is widely known, but the animosity was for quite a while. (Spanning over 20 years) including club level.

That it never repeated is (aside from Turkey getting its **** together) that the reason itself doesn't exist anymore. We're not exactly hoarding players with Turkish descent anymore. The days of Kubilay Türkyılmaz or the Yakin brothers being considered national traitors by the turks are long over.

And I don't think any turkish person is crying rivers of blood over Eray Comert @asukru .

Man the Yakin brothers, that’s a blast from the past.

I used to love watching them in the CL with Basel.

I'm looking forward to tonight's game. I was gonna go for A Turkey win in tonight's game but Superbru scared me by flashing a message telling that I'm going for a major upset, so I chickened out and went for a draw :lol:

I still think Turkey could win tonight.
