Nuri Sahin Retired from the Turkish National Team

Turkish national team midfielder, Nuri Sahin, decided to retire from international football on Thursday (2/11/2017) local time

The decision is not without reason and careful consideration. In essence, Sahin hopes the younger generation of Turkey can get more opportunities to show off.

The 29-year-old midfielder played his debut game and scored when Turkey won 2-1 over Germany in 2005.

The goal made him Turkey’s youngest player since he was only 17 years old.

“I believe with the confidence and enthusiasm of the Turkish youth, if we support them with a good plan, in the next 10 to 15 years, they can achieve great success,” Sahin said as quoted from FourFourTwo.

“I ended my career from the national team because I wanted young players to take precedence,” he said.

Nevertheless, Sahin is always ready to help if needed Turkish national team with all his experience as a professional footballer.

Borussia Dortmund player was finished his career in the Turkish national team with 51 caps.

The 0-3 defeat against Spain in the 2016 European Cup became his last match with Ay-Yildizlilar, the Turkish nickname.
