Turkey's top goalscorer Hakan Sukur, who has scored twice so far in Euro 2000, injured himself in training on Thursday afternoon. The injury was inflicted to his leg and he may miss the Quarter Final match with Portugal on Saturday.

Turkish team dodctors said they were not sure whether he will be fit to play on Saturday - so it looks like 50/50 at the moment.

If he fails to play, it will be a massive blow for Turkey in the biggest football match that the nation has ever encountered.

But if even if he is not fully fit, the Turkish coach is likely to risk him at some stage during the game, especially if Turkey are behind.

With or without Sukur, our boys can beat them if they play concentrated and paciently. Turkey is a slow pace team that plays similarly to the Romanians, and then uses fast counter attacks. One of Portugal's players, warned that they need to be patient and not take too many chances. One small distraction at the back - and the Turks score.
You saw how Italy had troubles beating them!...
It won't be easy at all! But perfectly possible to our side
