The TFF confirmed in a statement that the 30-year-old has been left out of Fatih Terim's matchday squad after failing to recover sufficiently from the problem.

It is reported that Arda's injury is not serious and it is unlikely to keep him out of Barcelona's La Liga match with Granada on Sunday.

"After detailed checks and examinations carried out last night, it was not possible for the player to be in the squad for the match," the TFF said of their captain, who played the whole of last Friday's 2-0 World Cup qualifying win over Finland in Antalya.

Turkey are looking for a third win in three matches when they face Moldova in Eskisehir.
