Turkey takes on Finland in its last friendly match


The Turkish national team will play its last warm-up match against Finland in Germany today before heading to Switzerland to prepare for next month’s UEFA Euro 2008 proper. Fatih Terim’s side has played two friendlies so far, winning one and losing one. Fatih Terim boys beat Slovakia 1-0 in their first match and lost 3-2 to Uruguay on Sunday despite going ahead twice. Even though the Uruguayans were awarded two penalties, the general consensus was that Turkey lost as a result of poor defending. And the reason is not far-fetched. Servet Çetin, one of Turkey’s best defender, is injured and have not been fielded in any of the friendly matches.
