“WHAT MORE CAN I SAY?”
On the other hand, the result and the game of the Nationals against Luxembourg did not satisfy neither the spectators nor the football authorities.
Oğuz Tongsir, President of the Turkish Sports Writers Association, reacted to both the football displayed and the TRT announcer who presented the match.
Tongsir shared on his social media account, “The match finished 3-3, Luxembourg scored 3 goals against an opponent for the first time, we were disgraced, the TRT announcer is bullshit as if we have won the victory (we have been promoted to league B. Nationals are celebrating this)… What more can I say?” used the phrases.
A social media user named Mustafa Balkuv, who responded to Tongsir’s post, said: “Actually, we were happy as a nation in group C. The sun gave us this opportunity. Welcome to the stress and frustrations in group B.” said.
