Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I hope he is right, when he says,
"I would be very happy, when each fan would see the game on wednesday as a big celebration between the nations. Independent of the result the game is a big chance, to make a step to the always discussed integration."

The Turkish team has been great. After they won against Croatia, some of the players went to comfort the devastated Croatian players instead of going directly to their fans. But especially if the game is decided by a controversial referee decision, such a game could as well split instead of integrate.
Fair play on the part of all players will be very important (After in both teams already a player got a red card for assault - Schweinsteiger and Volkan).
