    Anyone go with Mbappe?

    Had him in my draft yesterday but decided Neymar was worth the extra 3m :rolleyes:

    Lineup surprises again. Iniesta, Carvajal and Cheryshev all don't start

    I don't think Mbappe's performances in the group stages suggested he was capable of doing what he did yesterday. How and ever, it will be hard not to draft him in for the next round, although he will face a bigger challenge against a dogged Uruguayan defense. Argentina were wide open yesterday

    I went for Carvajal of course, should have went for the security of Pique.

    Ignashevich own goal


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


    Dzyuba penalty, conceded by Pique. Pique booked.

    Russia win on penalties.

    Zanka (Delaney), Mandzukic (No assist)


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


    Modric missed penalty, saved by Schmeichel, won by Rebic and conceded by Zanka.


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


    Croatia go through on penalties.


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


    Neymar (Willian)


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


    Firmino (No assist)

    EDIT: Thought Neymar would get an assist for that but Ochoa's touch on the shot means no assist going by Fifa's bizarre assist rules.

    He wasn't.

    That assist rule is poor though.

    Japan goals
    0 - 1
    48' G. Haraguchi

    (assist by G. Shibasaki)

    0 - 2

    52' T. Inui

    (assist by S. Kagawa)

    Some eejit forgot to take Inui off the bench :(

    I'm claiming Lukaku touched that :pac:

    Belgium 1-2 Vert
    Belgium 2-2 Fellaini (E Hazard)
    Belgium 3-2 Chadli (Meunier)


  • Registered Users Posts: 14,810 ✭✭✭✭ jimmii


    Had Meunier for the groups but decided to switch for the knockouts. To Vert? No of course not to Alder! So far this round I have two 0s, two 1s, SIX 2s, a 3 and a 6. Brutal.


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


    Forsberg (Toivonen), Lang sent off.

    Kane penalty, won by Kane, conceded by C. Sanchez. C. Sanchez booked.


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


    Mina (Cuadrado)


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


    England win on penalties.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,102 ✭✭✭ Dearg81


    I've gone top after a good bench boost but I have no wild card and only 11 players playing next round so might have burned my chips too early. I'm still gonna use Max captain in the quarters though as it makes more sense to use it over 4 games than 2 to me.

    going over my points here and in round 3 there was no automatic subs made,I have players with zero minutes playing and players on the bench with points and could be subbed in.Was I supposed to make the subs my self or is this an error?
