How Turkey could line up against Wales

Sports Mole takes an in-depth look at how Turkey could line up against Wales in Wednesday's Euro 2020 Group A showdown.

Turkey head coach Senol Gunes will contemplate making changes to his starting lineup for Wednesday's Euro 2020 Group A clash with Wales in Baku.

The Crescent-Stars suffered a disappointing 3-0 loss to tournament co-hosts Italy in their opening match last Friday.

Turkey had just three shots in that game - their fewest ever in a European Championship match, failing to register a single attempt on target in the second half.

A slight tweak in formation that could see Hakan Calhanoglu move into a more central position is a possibility against Wales.

Cengiz Under, Irfan Can Kahveci and Kaan Ayhan are all in contention to return to the side, meanwhile, though Yusuf Yazici is unlikely to make way even after disappointing last week.

Up top, Burak Yilmaz - who scored 16 goals in 28 Ligue 1 appearances for shock champions Lille last season - should get the nod as the focal point of the side.

At the opposite end of the field, Ozan Kabak is another pushing for inclusion in place of one of Caglar Soyuncu or Merih Demiral, who scored an own goal against Italy in Rome.

Turkey possible starting lineup: Cakir; Celik, Demiral, Soyuncu, Meras; Under, Yazici, Yokuslu, Kahveci, Calhanoglu; Yilmaz
