Snow and White T-shirts! Turkish Football Team Becomes Invisible During Match

Players for Turkish side Sivasspor became almost invisible during their league match against Istanbul Basaksehir.  

Amid heavy snowfall that covered the pitch at the Başakşehir Fatih Terim Stadium, the visitors thought it would be a good idea to wear their white kit against the Super Lig leaders.

Their all white kit from socks to shirt meant they camouflaged with the surface and became incredibly hard to identify during the match.

The match was played in full despite poor visibility and the Sivasspor players struggling to see their teammates and ended in a 1-1 draw.

Daniel Aleksic gave Basaksehir the lead in the 38th minute but the visitors quickly responded through Hakan Arslan four minutes later.

The match became quite difficult to follow for fans watching on TV, but some saw the funnier side of the wintery conundrum.

One fan said the clash between the kits and the snowy pitch was like a video game, as he tweeted: ‘It’s like a FIFA match when you choose the wrong kits’

Another suggested that the camouflage was all part of Sivasspor’s tactics, tweeting: ‘It is called ‘The Casper strategy’ brand new in European football.’
