DORTMUND, Germany (AP) — Arda Guler, the new star of Turkish soccer, is a doubt for the European Championship match against Portugal on Saturday.

Turkey coach Vincenzo Montella said on Friday that Guler “is physically not 100%” and will be assessed ahead of the game in Dortmund.

Montella didn't disclose exactly what was wrong with Guler.

Guler, a 19-year-old attacking midfielder who plays for Real Madrid, scored a brilliant long-range goal in the 3-1 win over Georgia on Tuesday to become the youngest debut scorer at a European Championship. He came off in the 79th minute.
