The Turkey boss is hoping to guide his side to a seventh win in a row but accepts they will be considered underdogs by many ahead of the match in New JerseyTurkey coach Fatih Terim has his sights set on what would be a record-breaking victory for his side over the USA on Sunday evening.
Jurgen Klinsmann’s hosts are preparing for the World Cup this summer and looking to continue their strong home record during the match in New Jersey.
However, the visitors come into the game on strong form after winning their last six matches against Northern Ireland, Belarus, Sweden, Kosovo, the Republic of Ireland and Honduras – no Turkey team has ever secured a streak of seven.
Terim says he is trying to create a winning mentality amongst his squad and hopes they can cause a surprise against the Brazil-bound Americans.
"We prefer to play friendly matches with strong sides,” he told reporters.
“Our purpose is to create a side that is used to winning games and there will be no change in our playing style against USA.
“Due to their World Cup preparation they are more prepared than us - both physically and mentally – but I have faith in my team and there could be a shock result.
“I will try to give some new players a debut but we will continue with the style of trying to build a strong team that plays mainly in attack.”
Turkey have only lost one of their last 10 international matches, with that defeat coming against the Netherlands last October.
