Having been drawn in a seemingly favourable group, the Turkey Euro 2020 odds suggest Senol Gunes' side could be this summer's surprise package.

Turkey exited at the group stage in 2016 and failed to reach the 2018 World Cup in Russia but the Crescent Stars appear to have found form at just the right time.

Gunes, who took Turkey to a third-place finish at the 2002 World Cup during his first spell in charge, saw his team give France a run for their money in qualifying.

Turkey have won 14 and drawn nine of their 26 matches since Gunes was appointed for a second stint at the helm and currently top a World Cup qualifying group which includes Holland and Norway.

Leicester's Caglar Soyuncu and Liverpool's Ozan Kabak form an impressive centre-back pairing, with AC Milan's Hakan Calhanoglu and West Brom loanee Okay Yokuslu pulling the strings in midfield and Burak Yilmaz the main goal threat.

Goalkeepers: Altay Bayındır (Fenerbahce), Ugurcan Cakır (Trabzonspor), Mert Gunok (Istanbul Basaksehir)

Defenders: Kaan Ayhan (Sassuolo), Zeki Celik (Lille), Merih Demiral (Juventus), Ozan Kabak (Liverpool), Umut Meras (Le Havre), Mert Muldur (Sassuolo), Caglar Soyuncu (Leicester), Ridvan Yilmaz (Besiktaş)

Midfielders: Taylan Antalyali (Galatasaray), Hakan Calhanoglu (AC Milan), Halil Dervisoglu (Brentford), Irfan Can Kahveci (Fenerbahce), Orkun Kokcu (Feyenoord), Abdulkadir Omur (Trabzonspor), Dorukhan Tokoz (Besiktas), Ozan Tufan (Fenerbahce), Okay Yokuslu (West Brom)

Forwards: Kerem Akturkoglu (Galatasaray), Kenan Karaman (Fortuna Dusseldorf), Enes Unal (Getafe), Cengiz Under (Leicester), Yusuf Yazici (Lille), Burak Yilmaz (Lille)
