This Turkish talent’s stunning shot gave his country a lifeline

Footage of Turkish midfielder Ozan Tufan fixing his hair instead of blocking Luka Modric´s smashing shot in Turkey’s match vs Croatia had quickly gone viral at home and in international social media. However, in yesterday’s crucial game against the Czech Republic the 21 year old defensive midfielder found the right answer to the mockery.

In the second half Ozan Tufan doubled his country’s lead when he curled a brillant shot into the top right hand corner and kept Turkey´s hopes of making the next round alive! Not only his goal is worth mentioning, but also his strong defensive performance winning 50% of his duels!

We at KICKRS.NET are quite sure this was not his last outstanding performance as Ozan was also key to his club Fenerbahce´s success. The talented midfielder has quick feet and superior vision on the field to almost any other player in Turkey playing his position. And on top of his physical presence, Ozan Tufan adds a lot of options to the attacking game. 

Profile: Ozan Tufan (approx. 7€ Mio. - Source: TM.de)
Comparison: Danilo, Leander Dendoncker
Strength: Defensive contribution
Weakness: Occasionally distracted by personal vanity
