Kabak has been given the week off from training in order to focus on his future. The centre-back had not travelled with the team to training camp in Mittersill after having taken part in the EUROs with Turkey.

Meanwhile, Matondo will continue his rehabilitation in Wales and is in close contact with team doctor Dr. Patrick Ingelfinger. The attacker is currently undergoing treatment for a knee problem, which prevented him from joining up with the team in Austria.
