    4 players for me in the Russia v Uruguay game and 3 of them aren't starting so that's a great! I've had the worst luck with my two Uruguay players so far! Hoping for Cheryshev to bring home the points again.

    Starting with Isco as captain today he doesn't seem the type to bring in a double digit haul but you never know.

    And he goes and scores an og and gets taken off after 36 minutes :pac:

    Suarez and Salah goes so far. Missed penalty for the Saudis too. At least the group isn't just being played out with everything settled now lots going on!

    I did a last minute transfer at a cost to get in Cheryshev for Golovin.

    DISASTER!

    Ah well at least cheryshev didn't get a red card. He can be subbed. On the plus side I brought in the Egyptian keeper when I saw the line ups. Saved pen is nice. Pity he didn't save the second one mind.

    Denmark XI: Schmeichel, Dalsgaard, Kjaer, Christensen, Jorgensen, Stryger, Delaney, Braithwaite, Eriksen, Sisto, Cornelius

    France XI: Mandanda, Sidibe, Kimpembe, Varane, Hernandez, Nzonzi, Kante, Lemar, Griezmann, Dembele, Giroud

    Australia XI: Ryan, Milligan, Behich, Risdon, Sainsbury, Mooy, Jedinak, Rogic, Leckie, Juric, Kruse

    Peru XI: Gallese, Santamaria, Trauco, Ramos, Advincula, Cueva, Tapia, Yotun, Guerrero, Carrillo, Flores

    There is a decent amount of rotation for France, Pogba dropped to the bench, as has Mbappe, Umtiti, Llori, Pavard, etc.

    Stipulations:
    • If Denmark win then they go through as group winners, France runners-up.
    • If Denmark draw then they go through as runners-up alongside France.
    • If Denmark lose then Australia must win if they're to go through as runners-up.

    Expecting a 0-0....

    France ration killed me, 3 not playing; Mbappe, Llori and Pavard. Expected maybe 1 to not start. No points with 3 is a real downer.

    Hard to take -4 hits then to get players in who will def start.


  • Registered Users Posts: 42,030 ✭✭✭✭ Scorpion Sting


    Carrillo (Guerrero), Guerrero (No assist)

    0-0 in Denmark-France match.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,700 ✭✭✭ shmeee


    And 2 of my argies don’t start either. Again couldn’t risk hits. I’ll be lucky to have 6 players get points at this rate!

    Round 3 is mental with rotation.

    I thought Germany would go for goals.
    Went with Werner, Reus, Muller on my wildcard..

    Wildcard has been nothing short of a disaster.

    Savage rotation this evening again.

    Impossible round this!

    Lads with Kane as Captain won’t be happy.
