May 31, 2021 The European Championship format is not yet available in Turkey. The country played its first exhibition match as part of preparations on Monday, but confidence was never built. Senol Gunes’ formation was just 0-0 against Guinea and that was a major setback.
Turkey is much higher in the world ranking than Guinea which is only 72nd. But this team withstood the Turks. Burak Yilmaz was not yet present in Turkey, but other than that there were a lot of big names in Turkey. Genghis Onder, Ines Onal and Orkon Kuksu, among others, were given minutes. Feyenoord was a substitute in the second half, just like Khalil Dervisoglu.
Remarkably, Turkey did not score more than one goal attempt in ninety minutes, while Guinea pledged more than that. It should also be noted that Ahmed Mendes Moreira of Excelsior was a replacement. He made his debut for Guinea by entering the field in the 65th minute. He saw his team drew 0-0 well.
As for Turkey, it is hoped that preparations will continue to improve. The country is also practicing against Moldova. In the European Championships you will play in the group stage against Italy, Wales and Switzerland. The duel with the Italians is the tournament’s first match.
