The game to decide who joins Portugal in the quarter-finals will be settled by a penalty shoot-out should the scores stay level after 120 minutes, as both sides are level on points, goal difference and goals scored in the runners-up spot. UEFA regulations state if two teams meet in a final group match in such circumstances and draw, the tie should be determined by a penalty competition.
Volkan, who saved three spot-kicks in Fenerbahce´s Champions League win over Sevilla this season, is ready for more heroics but believes the Turks can triumph without having to resort to penalties. "If the game goes to penalties, I will do my best. I am sure we will go through without needing a shoot-out," he said.
