Arda Turan delivers an inspiring speech to his Turkey team-mates in a new Nike advert.
Promoting the brand’s ‘Spark Brilliance’ campaign, the ad shows the Barcelona midfielder wearing the armband of his country and delivering a half-time speech to his national team pals.
He speaks about standing up to the big kid and only losing when they give up, while a young actor playing Turan battles with bigger opponents in a street game of football.
It’s just another example of Turan’s passionate side – something he shows on a regular basis for Barcelona and his national team:

Turan was part of the Turkey team which beat Sweden 2-1 last night in the first of two friendlies this week.
The Turks – who will play at Euro 2016 – face Austria in their next friendly on Tuesday and that will be another opportunity for them to show their quality ahead of the tournament in France.
