About Turkey National Football Team

The Turkey national football team (Turkish: Türkiye Millî Futbol Takımı) represents Turkey in international men’s football matches. The team is controlled by the Turkish Football Federation (Turkish: Türkiye Futbol Federasyonu), the governing body for football in Turkey, founded in 1923 and a member of FIFA since 1923 and UEFA since 1962. It has been recognized as Türkiye by FIFA and UEFA since 2022.

The team played its first official international match in 1923 and has represented the nation in major competitions since its debut at the 1924 Summer Olympics. They have participated in the Summer Olympics a total of six times (1924, 1928, 1936, 1948, 1952, and 1960), and reached the quarterfinals twice, in 1948 and 1952.

Turkey National Football Team History

UEFA Nations League 2020-21

After qualifying for Euro 2020, Turkey entered with momentum, despite having to face old foe Russia, along with Hungary and Serbia in the 2020-21 UEFA Nations League B.

However, despite all these improvements, Turkey performed poorly in their first two games in September 2020. The first game against Hungary at home saw Turkey suffer a 0-1 defeat through a Dominik Szoboszlai free kick. Going to Belgrade against Serbia, after repeated Serbian pressure, Turkey had a man-lead following Aleksandar Kolarov’s red card, however, the Turks were unable to capitalize and went goalless.

This hurt their chances of qualifying for League A, as their next opponents in October will be Russia (who had made a good start) and Hungary. The early underperformance could also play a detrimental effect on Turkey, as this season’s Nations League was used for the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualification process.
