Brazil rally to down Turkey
Two Turkey players were sent off as Brazil came from behind to win their group C match 2-1.
Brazeeeeeel! - Images from the match

If Galatasaray is a showcase of Turkish talent, Turkey should be a revelation. The squad has a balanced mix of experience and promising talent, and is strengthened by players from European leagues.

The litmus test for the Turks will be the tie against Brazil. Costa Rica and China should also offer resistance in varying degrees.
