France, Paris
October 14, 2019 at 04:17 GMT +00:00 · Published

The Turkish football team trained in Paris on Sunday, ahead of their Monday clash against the French squad for the Euro 2020 qualifier.

Turkey dominated their last encounter, winning 2-0 in June in Konya, Turkey, what French coach Didier Deschamps described as being "outplayed".

"In the group, our main rival was not France, but Iceland. We should have won against them. But tomorrow our rival is France. We want to play well and show our strength and we want to get a good result," said Coach Senol Gunes. "I expect all my players to play their best game against [French] players who play high level football and have achieved the highest success on the world stage, as well as respect them," he added.

Turkey will face France in Paris on Monday. The Euro 2020 will take place in 12 host cities across Europe from June 12 to July 12 2020.
