Semih motivated by underdogs tag

Published Add your comment

Turkey forward Semih Senturk is happy for everyone to continue to write his side off as they look to make it through to a European Championship final for the first time.

Turkey are already in uncharted waters having never before progressed beyond the quarter-finals of this competition, and for most they will be major underdogs for their semi-final against European heavyweights Germany in Basle.

However, that outsiders tag fits just fine for Semih, who said: "Everybody thinks Germany are favourites against us. But it is only motivating us even more."
