FootballCoin Log: Day 4

The World Cup’s most successful teams begin their campaign today. Germany and Brazil will look to earn three points. Their opponents, however, will certainly have what it takes to potentially put up a fight. 

World champions, Germany, meet Mexico. For El Tri reaching the, by now, mythical, fifth game has become an obsession. It’s Mexico’s seventh straight qualification to a World Cup. Each time they’ve managed to qualify past the group stage. Each time they lost the first match in the knockout round. This time, the team is losing to break the curse. It starts against the mighty Brazilians.

Schurrle, Marco Reus and Gotze - Dortmund

There are many who think Germany has what it takes to defend their title. It would be the first this has happened in the modern age. It’s a good news for our virtual managers. FootballCoin will get the chance to use the German players on their team for the remainder of the competition. Furthermore, Die Mannschaft is represented by many free card players. Muller, Draxler or Reus all enter this category.

Mexican players with great potential are also free to use for today’s competition. Chicharito Hernandez, Dos Santos or Moreno are among these players.

Neutral football fans will be delighted with the chance to watch Brazil. The South Americans begin their race for a sixth World Cup against Switzerland. Arsenal’s newest addition, Stephan Lichtsteiner can be a good option for your squad. He is a free player in FootballCoin. Depotrivo’s Fabian Schär will be another option.

Gabriel Jesus

Brazil arrives for the Russian  World Cup with a squad consisting of mostly internationally famous players. Despite their notoriety, many of these are free to play in FootballCoin. Some of the great free options for your team include Thiago Silva, Taison, Gabriel Jesus or Douglas Costa.

In the first game off the day, Serbia meets Costa Rica. The North Americans will unlikely be nervous of the game. Four years ago they qualified from a group that included Uruguay, England and Italy.

FootballCoin managers will be able to take advantage of the good form enjoyed by both teams. The managers’ selection can include, for example, A. Mitrovic, free to play in the game. The striker is in good form. He recently scored a hat-trick in Serbia’s 5-1 victory over Bolivia. Elsewhere, Costa Rica’s captain,Bryan Ruiz, is also free to play. He could make a strong option for your team’s midfield.
