FootballCoin World Cup Log: Day 16

Life is beautiful for the national team of Uruguay at the moment. The team features some of the best players from Europe’s top leagues. Uruguay has won each of their group games, not having conceded even once. And to boot, their rivals, Argentina, the creators of the original version of the Uruguayan flag, look as if they wouldn’t be able to beat Tunisia without the help of Messi. But things could take a darker turn this Saturday. Uruguay meets the European champions, Portugal.

Half of the teams that started the World Cup have been eliminated. But, that doesn’t mean you cannot create some great FootballCoin teams using exclusively the game’s free players. We’d liek to try and help you out with some suggestions:

  • Fernando Muslera (Uruguay)
  • Joao Moutinho (Portugal)
  • Rodrigo Bentancur (Uruguay)
  • Jose Fonte (Portugal)
  • Edinson Cavani (Uruguay)

Sports fans across the world will be enthusiastically waiting for the last 16 clash between Argentina and France. The French team has a great squad to choose from but have been relatively unimpressiv e in the group stage games. On the other hand, the Argentinians have Lionel Messi and Marcos Rojo and have downright poor in their three opening games. The real question is whether the Albiceleste are ready to rise to the potential level of Les Bleues, or if they will be looking to drag the French team to their current level. 

The stats favor the French to win today. Didier Deschamps’ men have lost only one off their last 15 games. Argentina, however, has lost to Spain and Croatia recently and by large margins. Despite this, the Argentine team has the habit of winning each time that Lionel Messi scores. This has been true for games since September 2015.

France’s top players make a return to the starting 11. The substitute players got their chance in the meeting against Denmark, one of the most boring games at this World Cup. With this in mind we are able to recommend some free players to consider for your FootballCoin team.

  • Kylian Mbappe (France)
  • Maximiliano Meza (Argentina)
  • Lucas Hernandez (France)
  • Nicolas Tagliafico (Argentina)
  • Blaise Matuidi (France)


All four teams were expecting to qualify from the group stage. Now that they have and with 90 minutes separating them from being knocked out, or joining the top 8 teams in the world, they are expected to finally reveal their very best. Can you create a winning FootballCoin team using the squads of these four teams?
