2 min The captain Burak Yilmaz has an early pop from long range. It hits the back of Akanji and flies behind for a corner.
The players stroll out of the tunnel, into the steamy Baku heat. There are reportedly over 20,000 Turkey fans in the ground, and they proudly belt out the national anthem.
Paul Doyle is your man for the big game in Rome, and much else besides.
Switzerland will go out of the tournament unless they win. A victory would give them four points, which should be enough to qualify as one of the best third-placed teams. They could also finish second in the group: if they win and Wales lose, goal difference will decide who comes second.
Turkey need to win to have any chance of qualification, probably by a few goals. Their poor goal difference (-5) is likely to cost them if more than one third-placed team finishes on three points.
Two changes for Switzerland. Silvan Widmer and Steven Zuber replace Fabian Schar and Kevin Mbabu, which should mean Ricardo Rodriguez moving from left wing-back to left centre-back.
Turkey make three changes from the side that lost to Wales. Okay Yokuslu, Kenan Karaman and the injured Umut Meras are out; Merih Demiral, Irfan Can Kahveci and Mert Muldur come into the team.
You wait 19 months to play at a major tournament, and then it’s all over in 10 days. Back in November 2019, when Switzerland and Turkey qualified for Euro 2020, they could let their imagination run wild with what they might achieve. But reality doesn’t take long to bite, and today at least one of these teams will leave the competition without trace.
