Turkey will have to do the quarter final and possibly the semi final without first choice goalkeeper Volkan Demirel.
Demirel was red-carded during the match with the Czech Republic, following a foul on striker Jan Koller. Turkey had already used all substitutions at that point, and Tuncay Sanli had to finish the game between the posts.
UEFA today announced that Volkan – his player name – has been suspended for two matches and will have to miss out on the quarter final clash with Croatia.
Fortunately for the Turks, their second goalkeeper RÃƒÂ¼stÃƒÂ¼ ReÃƒÂ§ber is arguably the most experienced keeper in Turkey.
If Turkey are to make it to the semi finals, RÃƒÂ¼stÃƒÂ¼ will continue to represent his team against Germany or Portugal.
