Germany captain Michael Ballack believes Turkey´s unpredictability makes the outcome of Wednesday´s Euro 2008 semi-final in Basle too close to call.

The Turks have a mountain of injury and suspension problems ahead of their match with the highly-fancied Germans, but their never-say-die attitude makes them dangerous opponents.

"Turkey are certainly not better than us tactically, technically and in terms of individual players," said the Chelsea midfielder, who excelled in Germany´s 3-2 win over Portugal in the last eight. "But they are unpredictable and they won´t underestimate any of us."
