Fatih Terim, Turkey coach


It is hard to play here in the Netherlands because they are a good opponent but i can say that we played well and were compact as a team so I am proud of my team. I really enjoyed the match. I want to emphasise that it is difficult to play the Netherlands both home and away. But my team played well and didn't give away many chances.

So we have to continue working and even improve. We showed a lot of teamwork today and from experience we know that if you lose focus for a second against the Netherlands they will punish you. We had to rethink our tactics and I am very proud of how my team performed on the pitch.

Former Trabzonspor AŞ left-back Abdullah Ercan was one of the starters in Turkey's win against the Netherlands back in 1997. In that game, Turkey had managed to beat the Dutch 1-0 thanks to Hakan Şükür's strike in a FIFA World Cup qualifying match in Bursa. Ercan, who now works as Turkey Under-21 coach, will be on the Turkey bench tonight as assistant to coach Fatih Terim. Will Ercan's Dutch experience prove useful this evening? Time will tell.
