Thread for newsfacts about our national sides.

I'll open up with some news about our Under 16 side.

Türkiye 1-1 Belçika

Our Under 16 side drew 1-1 with Belgiums Under 16 team in a friendly tournament called the Geleneksel Ege Kupası'nda (The Traditional Aegean Cup) held at Aliağa in Izmir.

I haven't seen the match but according to a match report by news agency, IHA, Turkey put down a convincing performance but failed to reflect their performance on to the score.

Our side went ahead early on with a goal by Sercan Yildirim at the 13th minute.. Interestingly enough, a fella called Fazli Kocabas scored for the Belgians. The Belgian coach Bob Browaeys commented they were lucky to have put down this kind of performance against a force like ours. 'This draw is a little bit like a victory for us'.

Coach of the Turkish U16 side, Hami Mandirali, thought they have put down a worse performance than expected. He went on to explain that they were a new team and things will improve in the near future. 'We have seen our deficiencies in this match, we know what to fix'.

Stadium: Aliağa Şehir
Referees: Kutluhan Bilgiç , Faik Ucuner , Ulaş Gümüş
TÜRKİYE: Ersel Çetinkaya , Yiğit Dadan , Bülent Uzun , Murat Akça , Sarper Kıskaç , Gökhan Öztürk (Furkan Özcal dk. 55 ), Serkan Kurtuluş (Fatih Erdem dk. 46 ), Abdullah Filik (Levent Demirağ dk. 75 ), Sercan Yıldırım (Umut Süzen dk. 61 ), Şahin Aygüneş , Ömer Sümer (Mehmet Öztonga dk. 55 )
Belgium: Stijin , Dimitri , Fazlı Kocabaş , Guiro Cedric , Niels , Ciza Cedric (Michael dk. 78 ), Kerem Zevne , (Ernest dk. 65 ), Berthold (Laurens dk. 58 ), Nill , Raffaele , Maurizio (David dk. 78 )
Goals: Sercan Yıldırım (dk. 13), Fazlı Kocabaş (dk. 73) (Belçika)
Yellow Card: Ömer Sümer (Türkiye), Ciza Cedric, Berthold (Belçika)

From what I could find on the Internet it looks like Sercan Yildirim is a youth player (14/03/1993) for Konya Sanayispor's amateur team. Fazli Kocabas is a youth player R. Standard de Liège and is born on 01/01/90. Nothing else to know about them really.

thx, I'm full of ideas really, they just don't come to the surface all the time :lazy:

Looks like Ulusoy is more than prepared to continue with current manager Fatih Terim, according to Anadolu Ajansi. The TFF and Fatih Terim are in negotiation about the path that should taken but the signs of goodwill from both sides make the impression we will keep seeing Fatih Terim at the helm.

Here is an article with Terim:


We got the best results we could hope for in the draw phase. However no match is easy without being played first. We have to take this seriously from the start. We all saw what we had to live through in the past.”

“We have to take this seriously from the start”
In the 2008 European Championship elimination stage Turkey is in group C with rivals Greece, Norway, Hungary, Bosnia&Herzegovina, Moldovia and Malta. Turkey’s national team manager Fatih Terim made warnings and remarked that they are in a good group but no match is going to be easy. Terim stated:

“We have to handle each rival seriously. Norway, Greece and Turkey are the teams that look closest to the top two positions. However noone should take Bosnia Herzegovina and Hungary lightly. Hungary will play with vigor and will attempt to relive its glorious old days. Bosnia Herzegovina did not lose a single match at home in the World Cup eliminations. Norway plays with a style akin to the English way and they add superior physical condition on top of that. They are an experienced team who participated in many previos World Cups and European Championships. The fact that they lost 5-0 to USA in a friendly is irrelevant, they played against the Chech Republic as equals in skill. Greece is not in prime condition but they are still the carriers of the title European Champion. In the group the games against Hungary and Bosnia Herzegovina will determine who gets to the next stage. Malta, who is seen as the weakest rival in the group had a 1-1 draw against Bulgaria. If you play poorly then the group is difficult. If you play good, then it doesn’t matter who your rivals are.”

“WE ARE PREPARED FOR ANY PUNISHMENT”
Concerning the events in the match against Switzerland and the expected punishments from FIFA disciplinary commity Fatih Terim stated, “FIFA Disciplinary Commity will announce its decision on 6-7 February. They may decide to have the match played in another place. We are taking every possibility into considiration and preparing accordingly.”

BRAND NEW NATIONAL TEAM Terim told the press the in the 2008 European Championships many new faces will be seen in the national team. He continued saying, “Players like Hakan Þükür and Alpay Özalan made great contributions to Turkish football. They played important roles in the goals achieved. However they have wisdom that they will make room for young players. Some people will leave, some will arrive. In the 2008 European Championship there will be many different players. We have experienced players like Yýldýray, Tuncay, Emre, Serhat and Selçuk. Apart from those there will be new additions.”

“HALUK ULUSOY TOLD THAT HE WANTED TO CONTINUE WITH ME” Terim also answered the questions regarding if the new president of the Turkish Football Federation Haluk Ulusoy was planning to change the manager of the national team. Terim stated, “I talked with Haluk Ulusoy. It was a civilized conversation between two gentlemen. We exchanged ideas concerning the future of Turkish football. Haluk Ulusoy said that he wanted to continue with me. We will discuss the details like for how long later.”

cheers to that. It is time for Sukur and Ozalan to step aside and let someone else have a chance at screwing up lately. Alpay's handball in the first minute of the Swiss game which gave them the one goal lead arguably ended our WC dream for 2006. Although some might say it fired up the side to play better. Anyways, Sukur is just Sukur, hasn't performed well at all for our "leading striker". Bring on Nihat, Tuncay, Altintop!!

New Lineup should be:

VOLKAN - GK
OZAT SEYHAN TORAMAN BARIS - DEF
EMRE YILDIRAY NURI HAMIT - MID
HALIL NIHAT - FWD
