According to A.Chakar, for Turkish national team to it will not be easy to get out of the group: "The two teams are far ahead of our team. We have to win over either Croatia or over the Czech Republic. I think it is not easy to win Spain.Of course, Turkey has repeatedly passed the same test. "
M. Aydın believes that Turkish team would like to meet with simpler rivals.In his view, the provision of opportunities for teams to play in the 1/8 finals who took 3rd place, showing the best score in 4 out of the 6 groups is a positive thing.

For example, the winner of the Champions League, the player of "Real Madrid" Luka Modric, the last winner of the Super Cup UEFA, playing in "Barcelona", Ivan Rakitic, striker of Italial champion, "Juventus' Mario Mandzukic, captain of Ukrainian" Shakhtar "Darijo Srna are world stars.
They are much stronger than us.However, in football there are unexpected turns."
