    Turkey National Football Team History

    Turkey’s track record in international soccer is a bit of an enigma. They’ve achieved some high finishes in major tournaments. However, these have come in their relatively few overall appearances in such competitions.

    The national team was created in 1923, and played its first official matches at the 1924 Summer Olympics in Paris.

    After withdrawing before the tournament twice, Turkey finally appeared at the FIFA World Cup at Switzerland 1954. They did not advance past the group stage, and it would be the last time they would appear until 2002.

    That year was a triumphant return for the Turks, as they finished in third place. But it was yet another brief taste of the highest level of competition, as they haven’t managed to qualify again since.

    Euros are a somewhat similar story. Turkey failed to qualify for the first nine editions of the competition, finally debuting in 1996. Including that year, they have made four appearances total at Euros, placing third in 2008.

    Third is a theme for Turkey, as they also placed third in the 2003 Confederations Cup in their only appearance in the now-defunct competition.

    At one point Turkey ranked as high as fifth on the FIFA World Rankings, hanging in the top ten from 2002-2004. But their inconsistent performances and sporadic appearances in major competitions have kept them from truly joining the ranks of the world’s elite.

    Rüştü Reçber is the most capped player in Turkey’s history at 120 appearances, while Hakan Şükür leads the way in goals scored with 51.
