Arda Turan dropped from Turkey squad

Barcelona midfielder Arda Turan is left out of the Turkey squad for their internationals against Russia and Croatia next month.

Barcelona midfielder Arda Turan has been left out of the Turkey squad for their internationals against Russia and Croatia next month.

The 29-year-old has made 94 appearances for his national team since 2006, scoring 17 times in the process, but he had a difficult Euro 2016 after being booed by a section of his country's supporters.

Following their group-stage elimination in France, head coach Fatih Terim has wielded the axe, dropping Turan in addition to Burak Yilmaz, Selcuk Inan, Gokhan Gonul, Hakan Balta and Caner Erkin.

Turkey, who won one of their three games at the finals of Euro 2016, face Russia in a friendly on Wednesday night before taking on Croatia in a 2018 World Cup qualifier on September 5.
