Dutch midfielder Wesley Sneijder says that he is extremely surprised and happy with the support shown by the Turkish football fans when he took to the field in a Euro 2016 qualifying match against Turkey.

Sneijder may be playing his football in the Turkish league for some time now, but he still remains a very much an integral part of this Dutch national team. A lot of questions have been asked about the Dutch in recent months after poor form since the World Cup 2014. They have gone some way into answering those questions by getting a draw and a win in the last two qualifying matches.
