PARIS: Turkey coach Fatih Terim was left to rue a missed chance in the first half of their Euro 2016 Group D defeat by Croatia, which he believes would have changed the outcome of Sunday’s match. Ozan Tufan’s downward header was blocked on the line by Danijel Subasic as Turkey had the first clear chance of the match at the Parc des Princes, before Croatia scored the game’s only goal through Luka Modric. “If Ozan had scored (this goal), the outcome of the match would have been different,” Terim told a news conference. “I thought we would have more possession. The first half was balanced.” Modric put Croatia in front with a superb 25-metre volley.
