The national football team of Turkey, nicknamed the Crescent-Star, currently ranks 25th in the latest FIFA rankings and forms part of the UEFA confederation. The country’s football team appeared in two World Cups, with their best performance being in 2002 when they finished 3rd. They also appeared in three European Championships where their best performance was in 2008 when they reached the semi-finals. The country’s biggest win was registered against Syria (7-0) and their biggest defeats of 8-0 were registered against Poland and twice against England.
This is the new away kit that Turkey will wear in 2012 and in 2013. Turkey will not be appearing in Euro 2012 in Ukraine and Poland as they failed to qualify for the tournament. The shirt is manufactured by Nike whose Swoosh appears in red on the right side of the chest. The base colour of the shirt is white, and it has a red crew-neck collar and a red horizontal stripe on the chest. Upon this latter stripe, the white crescent and star are placed. White shorts and socks complement this home shirt.
Thanks toÂ Can Kerem Varol & Taylan Ege Cingoz and to @ozdemirmusta who pointed out we had home/away colours wrong way round, forgot about the change!
Originally from Malta and I love football. I appreciate the opportunity that this website gave me to start my career in football journalism. I’m a Man Utd fan and England supporter, and I watch football games mainly from England, Germany and Spain. I love to be informed about everything that is happening in the world of football.
