The Istanbul giants have promised to field a strong team for the fixture so the likes of Didier Drogba, Emmanuel Eboue, Wesley Sneijder and Johan Elmander could be gracing the Greenhous Meadow.

The clash will take place on Saturday, July 13 with a 3pm kick-off.

Shrews secretary Jayne Bebb said: "We were looking for something special for the team and supporters to experience this pre-season and after a lot of behind-the-scenes negotiation we have landed this attractive fixture against the Champions League quarter-finalists of last season."

t's a bloody good goal, though. Sh!t, the kid's gonna be the worlds best before we know it, isn't he? He's got the touch of genius in him. Like Neymar, but with muscles and stuff. He's doing a Ronaldo as we watch. He's bulked up to be able to ride the tackles, but he's improved technically as well. His touch is sublime. Bugger.
