European Championships: Group4
Introduced by Jimmy Hill with Trevor Brooking
On their first appearance in Izmir, England meet Turkey and kick off as European Championship Group 4 leaders with 100 per cent record from three games. England's two previous matches with Turkey produced an avalanche of goals - 13 without reply in the qualifying round of the last World Cup.
The score was 8-0 in Istanbul in November 1984 (to which captain BRYAN ROBSON contributed a hat-trick) and 5-0 (GARY LINEKER 'S turn to score three) in the return fixture at Wembley.
But BOBBY ROBSON will have warned his men that Turkey are much improved, having seen them beat East Germany 3-1 recently.

Four programmes with Duncan Campbell
Q: What happens to Britain in a time of crisis or war?
A: The country will be run under emergency laws.
Q: What are the emergency laws?
A: That's for the government of the day to decide.
That is the official position; the facts are somewhat different. The emergency laws are already written, but they're not available to the public. So Parliament and the people have no chance to discuss the legislation now, before a crisis looms. And when there is an emergency, there may not be time for discussion. Duncan Campbell reveals what's in the draft Emergency Powers Bill - hospitals, roads, fuel and conscripted civilian labour would be handed over to US military forces, for instance. He asks why Britain, unlike most of its NATO allies, keeps the plans confidential when it's the British people who'll be most affected.
