There Was An Unusual Prematch Gift Swap Before The Czech Republic Vs Turkey Game

There Was An Unusual Prematch Gift Swap Before The Czech Republic Vs Turkey Game

Usually before international teams play there is the usual handshake and swap of crests. Apparently in Turkey they prefer to give more outlandish gifts.

While the rug is nice you could forgive Czech Republic captain Tomas Rosicky for not wanting to lug around this cumbersome item after the match. The Turks didn't stop there, they also provided the Czech with a party bag to enjoy after the game.

Maybe there is more to Turkish football than mohawks and fan violence after all.
