Ayhan played in the 3-0 win v. Norway and this has been a major story in the national news this morning. Ayhan was withdrawn from the squad and never appeared v. Latvia later in the week.
The player is said to be “asymptomatic” and hopefully it will be “all clear” for other teammates and opponents as they prepare for new games coming this weekend.Embed from Getty Images
Ayhan and Soyuncu are both part of a great Turkish team at the moment flying high in their World Cup qualifiers and hopefully the former Fortuna Dusseldorf defender will get well soon.
Caglar Soyuncu has before the internatioanal break found his place in a new composed three men defence, playing fantastically alongside Jonny Evans and Wesley Fofana as this new foundation looks as concrete and hopefully Brendan Rodgers is able to settle these three in the team without any more set backs.
