Turkey Host Ghana

Turkish national football-soccer team meets Ghana in a friendly game in Istanbul .

“Playing against one of the most important teams of African football will be an important test,” coach Abdullah Avcı said at a press conference yesterday. “I hope we play well and get the result that we failed to recently – to get a morale boost before September.” 

Turkey will visit Romania on Sept. 10 in a key game, four days after hosting continental pushover Andorra. 

Six games into the 2014 World Cup qualification, Turkey is fourth in the Group D, left far behind the Netherlands, which leads with 18 points. Hungary is second with 11 points and Romania is third with 10 points. Turkey, which lost to Romania and Hungary in key games, is just fourth with seven points, and will make a desperate bid to get second place in the group for a playoff spot on the way to Brazil. 

Avcı said the Romania game would be decisive and refused to give up hope. 

 Abdullah Avcı’s performance as the national team coach has been largely disappointing, since he has led the team to only six wins in 17 matches, losing eight times. 

The Turkey vs Ghana match will start at 9:00 PM local Turkey time (2:00 ET)

The match will be broadcast live by Kanal  D TV .
