The 9th day of the tournament was a highly expected event for all fans, due to the fact that Brazil plays again. In their first match, against Switzerland, the Selecao didn’t manage to impose themselves. The Costa Ricans players are also motivated and prepared to surprise us. But will you risk on that in the FootballCoin contests?

This is an example for a team you can have in FootballCoin, choosing only free player cards:

Brazilia has an exceptional squat at the World Cup. They have in their squad the winners of the Champions League, the most expensive player in the world and may young footballers which are wanted by the biggest European clubs. Even so, their national team scored a draw in their first game against the Swiss.

The embarrassing elimination from 2014 is still a recent memory for the South Americans, and it is the reason for which the Selecao might be intimidated by the possibility of a new failure.

Costa Rica started this tournament with great objectives in mind. But their first defeat places them in an uncomfortable place. But a second defeat will result in the elimination of their team. Unfortunately, their second game is against the most famous team in the history of the World Cup.

A spectacular game is expected. The Manchester City forward, Gabriel Jesus, will be, probably, the favourite forward for the virtual managers in FootballCoin. Douglas Costa and Taison are two others free forwards which are free in FootballCoin, but they stand a smaller chance to be announced among the first 11 players. Bryan Ruiz and Keylor Navas are the most famous players from Costa Rica. Ruiz had a free player card in FootballCoin.  

Nigeria versus Iceland

The World Cup is a huge sports event, which is also followed by an enormous number of neutral fans. Nigeria versus Iceland is a popular derby much awaited by these fans. Iceland comes back after their first game in the World Cup which ended with the historical result against Argentina. That was their first point won in the tournament. And that was a result against one of the favourites for the title.

Nigeria lost their first game. But the talented African team will give everything for a victory today. Without 3 more points, their qualifying chances drop to almost 0.  

Iwobi, John Obi Mikel, Iheanacho, Gylfi Sigurdsson and Alfred Sigurdsson are available to all FootballCoin managers in today’s contests.

Both Serbia and Switzerland had a good performance in their first game. Serbia had a hard time winning against Costa Rica. And Switzerland vs Brazil ended with a draw.

The Serbian Veterans, Ivanovic and Tosic, are still free in FootballCoin. Their performances in the last game were a huge help in getting those 3 points. Lichtsteiner and Schar did a good job marking the Brazilians. They are also very good options for the FootballCoin contests.

All games from the World Cup are available in the FootballCoin contests. Join the virtual managers and win prizes.
