Having trouble choosing your fantasy football draft for tonight’s contest? Here are our balanced, sensible suggestions that should help your gain points and win real prizes in FootballCoin.
Suggested fantasy football team
Goalkeeper: Kasper Schmeichel
Sub: Jordan Pickford
Let’s start with our choice of the keeper. No doubt, Pickford and England’s defense have done well in this tournament. However, we are interested in where the action is likely to be. Moreover, we think Schmeichel has what it takes to come good on the saves, and, even a clean sheet.
Defenders: Luke Shaw, Joakim Maehle, John Stones, Harry Maguire, Jens Stryger Larsen
Sub: Kyle Walker
Choosing the appropriate set of defenders is vital in creating a winning team. This time we have opted for a system with five at the back.
We have, technically, chosen three-wide defenders. Given the style of the two teams, it is likely that wing-backs will be very involved in the two teams’ setup.
Also, we have chosen the two English central defenders. John Stones and Harry Maguire have been under significant pressure to prove themselves. So far they have done a good job. Their aggressive, even attacking style of play, may come in handy tonight.
Midfielders: Kalvin Phillips, Declan Rice, Thomas Delaney, Pierre Hojberg
Sub: Mikkel Damsgaard
Neither team resembles Spain or Guardiola’s Manchester City. That is to say that while creativity exists, the team does not make long spells of passing a priority. All of the players on our list are, essentially, holding midfielders. Still, their tough, dynamic presence should be enough to earn them a hefty amount of points.
Forward: Raheem Sterling
Sub: Harry Kane
Sterling has been England’s most dangerous man in front of goal. This has happened in spite of criticism from the English press prior to the tournament. Harry Kane is the team’s leader, certainly. This is, however, not always reflected in fantasy football points. Opt to switch between the two, but consider Sterling’s higher average of goal chances created during the tournament.
