Slated as many people's dark horse for the tournament, the emergence of a promising crop of young talent, most of whom are competing in the top five leagues in Europe, has the Turkish national team in its healthiest position for over a decade.
Despite much of Turkey’s resurgence as an international force being catalysed by said group of promising youngsters, it’s an experienced head who carries a large part of the goalscoring load - a35-year-old Burak Yılmaz. The Lille star is coming off his strongest goalscoring season since the 2017/18 campaign, having registered 18 goals in 33 games across all competitions in a season that saw his exploits rocket Lille towards an unlikely Ligue 1 title.
He is also, quite comfortably, Turkey’s highest goalscoring representative at the international level with 28 goals in 66 games and at 6/4 he’s the likely man to top Turkey’s goalscoring charts for the tournament.
Milan’s Hakan Çalhanoğlu, a set piece expert and a goalscoring threat from distance, cannot be discounted at a price of 5/1 but most signs point towards Yılmaz topping the chart.
