UEFA Holds Inquiry On Turkish Players' Soldier Salute

UEFA launches investigation on Turkish players' military salute in Albania, France matches, alleging political provocation.

UEFA, European football's governing body, launched an investigation on Tuesday against Turkey for a military salute performed by players of its national team.
Turkish National Football Team players did military salutes while celebrating a goal they scored during the UEFA EURO 2020 Qualifiers against Albania in Istanbul, as well as during their match against France in Saint-Denis, in reference to Turkey's anti-terror operation in Syria launched on Oct. 9.
UEFA initiated "disciplinary investigations" for the matches, appointing an inspector with regard to "potential provocative political behaviour," UEFA said in a statement.
During the matches, Turkish players celebrated their goals by a soldier's salute, dedicating their goal to Turkish soldiers currently fighting in northern Syria in the ongoing Operation Peace Spring. -
