Basturk, Altintop, Kas axed by Terim

ISTANBUL, May 28 (Reuters) - Turkey coach Fatih Terim has withdrawn striker Halil Altintop, midfielder Yildiray Basturk and defender Ibrahim Kas from his final squad for Euro 2008. Terim told a news conference in Germany shown on Turkish television on Wednesday: 'We do not think badly of these three footballers. They are part of us.' The greatest surprise in the 26-man provisional squad named earlier this month had been the omission of veteran striker Hakan Sukur. Defender Gokhan Gonul had already been withdrawn from the provisional squad due to injury with Emre Gungor stepping up. Turkey, who play their final warm-up match against Finland on Thursday, have been drawn in Group A alongside Portugal, the Czech Republic and Switzerland. Squad: Goalkeepers: 23-Volkan Demirel (Fenerbahce), 1-Rustu Recber (Besiktas), 12-Tolga Zengin (Trabzonspor) Defenders: 20-Sabri Sarioglu (Galatasaray), 4-Gokhan Zan (Besiktas), 15-Emre Asik (Galatasaray), 2-Servet Cetin (Galatasaray), 3-Hakan Kadir Balta (Galatasaray), 16-Ugur Boral (Fenerbahce), 13-Emre Gungor (Galatasaray) Midfielders: 7-Mehmet Aurelio (Fenerbahce), 6-Mehmet Topal (Galatasaray), 5-Emre Belozoglu (Newcastle United), 11-Tumer Metin (Larissa), 22-Hamit Altintop (Bayern Munich), 19-Ayhan Akman (Galatasaray), 14-Arda Turan (Galatasaray), 17-Tuncay Sanli (Middlesbrough), 18-Kazim Kazim (Fenerbahce), 10-Gokdeniz Karadeniz (FC Rubin Kazan) Forwards: 8-Nihat Kahveci (Villarreal), 9-Semih Senturk (Fenerbahce), 21-Mevlut Erding (FC Sochaux)
