Watch Turkey's best five goals from qualifying

Bursaspor centre-back Serdar was omitted as he still needs around three-weeks to recover from a groin injury, while a two-match suspension was a factor in Fatih Terim's decision to drop Beşiktaş winger Gökhan.

French-born striker Mevlüt has been off form of late, with Cenk Tosun preferred following a good spell with Turkish champions Beşiktaş, while versatile Fenerbahçe midfielder Alper was the odd man out in a side with plenty of options in central areas.
