Turkey to meet Germany in 'Turk'many

Tomorrow, 7 October, Turkey is going to play against Germany in a qualifying match for the 2012 European Championships. The match is going to be played in Berlin but more than an away match, it is expected to be a real home game for Turkey. Germany coach Joachim Loew is concerned tomorrow’s Euro 2012 qualifier against Turkey in Berlin could be an away game for his side given the amount of Turks living in the German capital.
“I was at the Euro 2000 qualifier in 1999 at Munich as a spectator and it was similar.
“Many Turks live in Berlin and it is expected that at least half of the fans will be Turkish, but my team can handle that.”

 Berlin’s Olympic Stadium has 74,228-capacity and I guess aprox. 50.000 of those will be Turks. We have a chance of high support against Germany but lack of performance issues - of the national teams in last years and Arda Turan' s absence may be a disadvantage for Turkish team. 

Well I hope we can knock Germany down and pass the hardest blockage for now, in long qualification period. For now let's remember the highlights of the last Turkey-Germany match in Euro 2008 Semi Finals;
