Played an important role in the Turks' qualifying campaign, particularly in the latter part when he grabbed his first international goals - he scored twice in Finland as a 2-0 deficit was overturned.
He then scored the equaliser in Moldova in the penultimate qualifier.
Played in all eight qualifiers and over the last couple of years he has established himself as a regular under Mustapha Denizli.
Made his debut against Macedonia in Skopje five years ago as a second-half substitute but was overlooked for the following 28 matches. His first full cap finally came in June 1997, against Croatia.
He began his career as a defender with Fenerbahce before moving to Kocaelispor where Denizli was the coach.
There he moved into midfield and helped the club to their only major honour, the Turkish Cup in 1997.
He picked up another Cup winner's medal the following season, but by then he had moved on to Besiktas.
Enjoyed an excellent season in the last campaign, helping Besiktas finish as runners-up in both the League and Cup.
