Thread Name: BS: Turkey v England in Istanbul
Subject: RE: BS: Turkey v England in Istanbul
The Turks seem to save their aggression for football matches when, this otherwise friendly nation, turns hooligan.
As it turned out, the match was well managed by the referee who prevented events on the pitch from getting too heated. A good result for England, even if it wasn't pretty, and Turkey can return to welcoming its visitors.
