Turkey finalises roster for the upcoming World Cup

One of the most traditionally powerful teams of the past decade, Turkey, will travel to Spain in order to prove that this legacy and continue. If they want to achieve it, they will have to finish within the first 4 teams of Group C, competing against Finland, New Zealand, Dominican Democracy, Ukraine and the big favourites- USA.

Coach Ergin Ataman has accepted the challenge to coach the team, but the first signs were not so good, concerning their results at least, because they managed to win only once, but the friendly results are not the most accurate way to judge a team’s progress.

On the other side, a key factor for the team, is that there are several skilled and experienced players that bring he roster together, including the starting playmaker, Ender Arslan.

Also, Turkey’s domination in the Youth Competitions start paying off, giving us a big talent Cedi Osman, who is likely to draw lots of attention, especially during Group games.
