Turkey have suffered another blow after UEFA on Monday denied goalkeeper Volkan Demirel´s appeal against his two-game suspension.

The decision leaves the already-depleted Turks without their number one goalkeeper for Wednesday´s semi-final meeting with Germany.

Demirel was sent off in stoppage time of Turkey´s dramatic 3-2 Group A victory over Czech Republic after pushing Jan Koller, and missed the quarter-final win over Croatia as a result.
