We always bring excitement to tournaments because our teams are usually enthusiastic and talented but tactically shaky and lack composure. That usually makes for exciting games. And obviously the fans are intense. That is especially a factor in this one because it's in Germany.

What a game this was!

Frantic and some very good passage of attacking play from both sides where everyone is involved without there being a target man to always try to play the ball to. This is what we as neutrals look forward to in tournament matches. Sadly, same style of play will hardly win you a trophy.

Turkiye need to find a way to add a measure of control to their play in the next game. Although that's a tall ask considering the opposition they'll face.

AM in the mud again. The two best managers (Spalletti and Rangnick) in the tournament go out with a whimper and not one fraud mention. Whilst, the fabulous four march on to the next round.🔥🔥
Spalletti I get, though Italy just has a mediocre squad, but ****ting on Rangnick for this tournament would be insanity. He had Austria playing some crazy good stuff despite having two key players (Alaba & Schlager) out with injuries. They would've won tonight had it not been for that insane save by Mert Günok at the end, too.

I see that as well in Germany, a big Turkish population.

Outside of economic factors, are there other reasons?

There's no colonial history or anything of the sort, Turkey and Germany simply signed an accord in 1960 that allowed Turks to come over for work because there weren't enough German men after WW2. By far the biggest percentage of the Turkish diaspora outside of Turkey lives here for that reason

Two Dutch-born players in the Turkish squad as well with Ferdi Kadıoğlu and Orkun Kökçü. Though Kökçü is suspended for the Netherlands match.

Also Demiral put in a proper 10/10 performance, unlucky not to get a hat trick and countless blocks and saves. I'd say good to see him get back to this level after his ACL couple years back but then he had to go and do the gray wolf salute after the game the dickhead.

Is it me, or this Baris guy is very average? Dont you guys have better players in his position? All the games I saw from him, also for Galatasaray, he looks more of a passion merchant than a talented forward?

He's the best athlete on the team. On a team without much athleticism, you want a guy that can go at the defense and keep them on their toes. Also a hard worker defensively. His best position is right winger but he's had to play as a striker for most of the tournament.

Barış can be frustrating, not a technician or a great decision maker, but he's a Swiss army knife type that can produce in many different positions. He's performed for Gala as a full back, wing back, right winger, left winger, and striker.

He was arguably our best performer against the Czechs.
