Injury woe lurks for Turks

Published Add your comment

UEFA officials could be forced into an emergency meeting should Turkey´s injury crisis deepen ahead of their Euro 2008 semi-final against Germany on Wednesday.

Coach Fatih Terim had only 15 available outfield players for their dramatic victory over Croatia, three of whom will be banned for the clash in Basel after picking up their second yellow cards of the tournament.

Nihat Kahveci is also set to miss the game with a thigh complaint, joining Servet Cetin, Tumer Metin and Emre Belozoglu on the treatment table. Emre Gungor has already been ruled out of the tournament and goalkeeper Volkan Demirel will find out on Monday if an appeal against his suspension has been successful.
