Arif Erdem



Arif Erdem
Another stalwart of Gala's glory years, Arif provides the crosses for Sukur.

A speedy six-footer, he prefers to play on the right wing and grabs his share of goals - he scored the winner when Gala beat Barcelona in the Champions' League of 1994/95, and scored a great opener in the 3-3 draw at Old Trafford the year before.

A veteran of the poor Euro 96 campaign, he scored just three goals in 28 internationals and lost his place for a year - but was brought back during the Euro 2000 qualifiers.

He repaid the faith shown in him when he claimed a four-minute hat-trick in the 3-0 win in Belfast in September.

He made his international debut against Macedonia in 1994 and has often been used as a late substitute to pep up a flagging attack.
