Arda Turan may have saved the day for Turkey but he still has a long way to go to impress coach Fatih Terim.

The 21-year-old attacking midfielder struck the winner deep in injury-time to hand the Turks a 2-1 victory over Switzerland on Wednesday in their second Group A game and keep alive their hopes of making the quarter-finals

"Turan is one of my old students at Galatasaray," said Terim. "When I called him into the national team I had expected him to progress more than he has."
