Tonight Turkey's National Football Team faces off against Austria for the Euro 2012 Elimination Round for Group A.
The game kicks off at the Şükrü Saracoğlu Stadium at 20:30 local time and will be broadcasted live on NTV and D Smart HD.
With two losses out of the last two games played in the group games, Turkey is hoping to regain an advantage due to the recent losses by fellow group members Germany and Azerbaijan.
IF WE WIN WE TAKE SECOND
Tonight's game holds much significance in terms of determining who will take second place in the group. Last week's loss at home by Austria to Belgium has disrupted all calculations for the group. While Belgium has increased to seven points, Austria remains at the same points and has lost their advantage. Our national team also only has six points; however should they win tonight they will take second place, thereby increasing any hopes of going on to the finals which will be held in Ukraine and Poland. During a press conference held last night, Turkey's National Team Technical Director Hiddink stated that they plan to focus on offence in tonight's game against Austria.
TURKEY'S STARTING LINE-UP: Volkan Demirel, Gökhan Gönül, Servet Çetin, Serdar Kesimal, Hakan Balta, Selçuk İnan, Hamit Altıntop, Nuri Şahin, Mehmet Ekici, Arda Turan, Burak Yılmaz
