Turkey vs Germany , Euro 2012 Qualifying
This has to be the one of the top matches on Friday, in the Euro2012 Qualifications!
Turkey vs Germany match in Istanbul at Turk Telekom "Aslantepe" Arena.....
Germany already quantified and they are on top of the group A, with perfect record...
Germany will be looking to maintain its perfect record in the last two matches.
On the other hand Turkey, who is on second place in the group and has to get at least a draw against Germany and win against Azerbaijan on Tuesday in the last match...
Germany will play their last match in the group against Belgium the team who is breading on Turkey's neck!
Turkish National team is with 14 points and Belgium with 12 points..
Both team plays against Germany!
While Turkey playing Germany on Friday ,Belgium will be home against Kazakhstan on Friday...
A win against Germany will keep Turkey's hopes alive to their last group game with Azerbaijan next Tuesday.
Turkey's goal is to finish the group stage at the second place and make a headway to the play-offs.
I believe they could do it if they play as a team ninety minutes....
On the other hand, Germany most likely will use their young players on Friday....
What is so interesting , both teams will have German born player playing for their National team..
Mesut Ozil who is born in Germany, who chose German national team will be with Germany National team while German born players like Mehmet Ekici, Hakan Balta, Hamit Altintop,Nuri Sahin , Gokhan Tore,Tunay Torun and Omer Toprak.
For Turkey, Emre Belozoglu, Servet Cetin ,and Selcuk Sahin wont play on Friday...
For Germany, Mario Gomez and Miroslav Klose is big question mark until match hour...
