Turkey have shocked Belgium 2-0 in Brussles to claim a Quarter Final showdown with Portugal in Amsterdam on Saturday.

Hakan Sukur is a dangerous striker and Couto and Jorge Costa will have their work cut out by him. The last time the 2 sides met was at Euro 96 in Nottingham when Couto scored from outside the box to give Portugal a 1-0 win. On that day Turkey goalie Rustu proved hard to beat, and tonite against Belgium, Rustu was once again formidible in goal.

However, Turkey's defensive quality's are still debatable. On a number of occasions they failed to clear the ball properly and made some silly errors. But with the help of some poor finishing by the Belgian's and some good goalkeeping by Rustu, Turkey held out for a magnificent win in their first ever Quarter Final apperance in a major tournament.
