Crees que la alineación de hoy será aproximadamente la que se verá de entrada en la Euro para Turquía?

Yo apostaría por Nihat con Tuncay de entrada en la delantera.

Juan, I will write to our blog readers too so I will reply you in english :-)

Yes, I think that the team would be very similar. According to this idea Fatih Terim changed many pieces compared to the qualifying team.
