TUR Vs ICE Dream11 Team, Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Turkey stand on the cusp of sealing qualification to Euro 2020 with a point today taking them through
When Group H of the Euro 2020 Qualifiers was conceptualised and brought into fruition, no one had expected Turkey to sit atop of the group after eight encounters. This is a group France were expect to dominate with Turkey vying for second position with Iceland.
However, the Turks have completely ripped apart the discourse to sit on top of Group H, engrossing us in a gripping narrative with some sublime performances. The 6 wins from 8 matches are level with France’s 19 points but the side edge into first place by virtue of a slightly better goal difference, seeing them needing just the one point to assure themselves of qualification to next year’s tournamnet.
What has particularly impressed from the side is the resolve, will, valour, gustiness and guile they have shown across their matches to thwart France in both the matches the two sides have squared off in. They come into this encounter having curtailed France to a 1-1 draw, an impressive display which the side will be looking to emulate against Iceland today who defeated them 2-1 the last time these two sides met.
Turkey coach Şenol Güneş: “We started qualifying well; we want to finish well, too. We picked up four points against world champions France, but lost to Iceland. Tonight we want to change that and secure our ticket to EURO 2020.”
While everything has been pinch perfect for Turkey, Iceland meanwhile have not had a smooth ride with the team needing a win today to keep their aspirations of making it to Euro 2020 alive. They managed to defeat Andorra 2-0 the last time around but up against a Turkey side who have won all of their last six matches at home, emulating the same performance will be extremely tricky for the side.

TUR Vs ICE Dream11 Goal-Keeper
If Iceland are to have any chance of pulling off a successful result from this encounter and keep themselves in the hunt of a spot in next year’s tournament, the side are going to need their shot stopper to be at the pinnacle of his abilities. Hannes Halldorsson is set to be up against a carnage of shots, an absolute onslaught with his defence paper thin at best, seeing us go in for him courtesy of the save points he’ll be regaling us in.
TUR Vs ICE Dream11 Defenders
A major reason for Turkey being so successful in the qualifiers is down to the compact and disciplined defensive unit of the side, one which has kept things extremely tight to let n just the three goals in eight matches. And the side will be looking to reverberate the same astute showing come today’s clash as well and regale their boisterous supporters in their seventh win.
It sees us move in with an entire trivalent of defenders from the side with both their fullbacks coming in for us in the form of Mehmet Zeki Celik and Hasan Ali Kaldirim alongside CB Merih Demiral.
TUR Vs ICE Dream11 Midfielders
Where Turkey have been dependable in defence, the side have reciprocated the same flawless showings in attack as well to ship past the 16 goals against their opponents. Up against a defence which has offered little in the way of vigour in defence, the hosts should thrive blatantly today, seeing us get in their man goal scorers for this one.
Hakan Calhanoglu, Mahmut Tekdemir and the returning Emre Belozoglu are all roped in by us for this encounter from the side with three making for daunting players who’ll be ruthless and relentless in their attacking sojourns. From the opposition meanwhile we have gone in with the two players with Arnor Traustason and Runar Mar Sigurjonsson representing us for today.
TUR Vs ICE Dream11 Strikers
In Tosun’s absence with the player out due to injury, the onus will increase of Buraz Yilmaz to step upto the platter and show his true mettle today. Given the slew of layups he’ll be provided with and the abysmal quality of the opposition’s defence, the player should rejoice and get atleast the one goal to make him our choice from the home side.
The one player comes in from the visiting setup as well with Iceland’s Kolbeinn Sigthorsson bringing an end to our Dream 11 picks for this encounter.
Captain And Vice-Captain
We are venturing into this encounter with both our picks in this facet coming in from Turkey. Yilmaz will be our captain for the day while Calhanoglu is the vice-captain.
