Turkey, on the other side, played probably the worst game this year four days ago, but their signs of crisis were shown few months ago already. They had a game with no offensive ideas, had much more possession then Croats, but simply were unable to find the space in attack, to make a normal, regular goal chance. Even before this game it was obvious that Turkish team is not playing well winning against Azerbaijan in 94th minute 1-0, then 2-1 unconvincing win over Kazahstan, both matches played at home. Of course, imidiatelly after big blow in first match all media and public opinion turned against Turkish players and national team coach and in this atmosphere its not possible to get anything out of the second clash match.
Croats have every reason to make a great game tonight, to finish this year with new victory and start preparational campaign for Euro2012 in a good mood. Turks already made themselves losers in this matchup and its hard to consider them as dangerous side this evening.
