Terim: "We are not completely ready"
"I hope that the game against Armenia will be a hope giving step for
the future. It is just a game. The league started late; and we are not
fully ready yet," Terim said.
Technical director of the national team Fatih Terim said: "Our league
started late this year. We just played two games. We may seem not
prepared fully; but our players do not bring along their issues to
their play in the national team. We do not think that this will affect
the national team. We start the eliminations for the year 2010 with a
team that the national team has not ever played against. I and my
players are very glad to do this for the first time."
