VADUZ, Liechtenstein, Oct 8 (Reuters) - Liechtenstein coach Ralf Loose has named a 21-man squad to face Turkey in their second 2004 European Championship qualifier on October 16.

Loose has included FC Vaduz defender Christof Ritter in his squad for the group seven match at the Ali Sami Yeni Stadium in Istanbul despite doubts over his fitness.

Liechtenstein caused a shock in their opening qualifying game against Macedonia last month when defender Michael Stocklasa scored a late equaliser in a 1-1 draw.

Loose will hope that his side can cause another upset against Turkey, who finished third at the FIFA World Cup" finals last summer.

Turkey lead the group following a comfortable 3-0 win over Slovakia in their opening game.

Chief rivals England begin their qualifying campaign away to Slovakia on Saturday.

Goalkeepers: Martin Heeb (USV Eschen-Mauren), Peter Jehle (Grasshoppers Zurich).

Defenders: Frederic Gigon (FC Baulmes), Daniel Hasler (FC Wil 1900), Jurgen Ospelt (Chur 97), Christof Ritter (FC Vaduz), Michael Stocklasa (FC Vaduz), Harry Zech (USV Eschen-Mauren).

Midfielders: Thomas Beck (FC Vaduz), Ronny Buchel (FC Vaduz), Matthias Beck (USV Eschen-Mauren), Franz Burgmeier (FC Vaduz), Fabio D'Elia (Chur 97), Mario Frick (Hellas Verona), Andrea Gerster (FC Vaduz), Thomas Nigg (USV Eschen-Mauren), Martin Stocklasa (FC Vaduz). Martin Telser (FC Vaduz).

Strikers: Marco Nigg (FC St. Gallen), Mario Wolfinger (USV Eschen-Mauren), Remo Eberle (Chur 97).
