A Newcastle spokesperson said today: "Emre is such a good professional that when he was injured playing against Bulgaria earlier in the season he let us know immediately. And as soon as last night's match in Istanbul was over he sent word that he was OK."
Emre was substituted after 82 minutes as Turkey crashed out of the World Cup on the away goals rule and, as usual with the highly strung Turks, they did not take their exit well, with the notorious defender Alpay in the thick of a fracas before the teams disappeared down the tunnel.
