Turkey players salute Syria operation after goal against France

The European football’s ruling body has already said it would examine reports that Turkey footballers performed a military salute in their Euro 2020 qualifier against Albania.

Olivier Giroud scored for France in the 75th minute of Monday night’s match before Kaan Ayhan equalized for Turkey six minutes later. His teammates then lined up in front of the away supporters and saluted.

Turkey’s veteran coach Senol Gunes defended the team’s action, saying it was a gesture of respect for the armed forces rather than a political statement or agitation.

Turkey launched a cross-border operation against the Syrian Kurdish YPG militia in north-eastern Syria last week, after U.S. President Donald Trump decided to withdraw forces from two posts in the area, in a move that drew harsh criticism, including from his fellow Republicans.
