Turkey coach Fatih Terim faces an anxious wait to see what sort of team he will be able to put out in their Euro 2008 semi-final against Germany with injuries and suspensions decimating his squad.

Terim went into Friday´s quarter-final against Croatia in Vienna with just 15 outfield players and with eight of his starting XI on a yellow card, and three of those eight - Tuncay Sanli, Arda Turan and Emre Asik - duly picked up bookings during the match and will be suspended for Wednesday´s semi, while captain and talisman Nihat Kahveci is doubtful (suspected groin injury).

"I haven´t been able to do any damage assessment yet and I have to go back to hotel and see what damage there is to the team," said Terim following his side´s penalty shoot-out victory. "We have injured players and suspended players, so we will have to see about all that."
