If your country has not qualified for the World Cup like Italy the summer months are going to be very frustrating. If you want to take part in the action along with attempting to win a huge prize, why not enter a fantasy football world cup league. You will get to pick players from the 32 teams in your chance to win prizes of up to 1 million if your picks perform the best. In this article, I will talk about the top team’s players that you should consider including in your squad.
England has not won the world cup since 1966 and expectation is not high this time around due to the bad performances in the last few tournaments. There are a number of players though that if they have a good tournament should be fantastic point scorers for your fantasy football team.
Harry Kane is the obvious choice to pick from the England team. He has just had his best season in the Premier League netting 30 goals in the process. He is recently back from injury but his two goals in the last game of the season show that he is bad to top form. If he is able to carry his club form into the competition, he may end up being the top goal scorer.
Jordan Pickford could be a great pick if he is selected as he will not be very expensive and should be able to keep a number of clean sheets. Sterling should start for England and may get in the goals or grab assists so could be a good points scorer.
As the home nation, Russia is expected to do well at the world cup. If they are they will need Fedor Smolov to play at his best. The striker has been brought in the replace Aleksandr Kokorin and it will be up to him to get the goals. He is the Russian League top scorer this season and may end up being a fantasy team bargain.
In most people, world cup fantasy team will be Lionel Messi and he should score huge amounts of points if he plays to his potential. Many think he is the best ever but he will always be in the shadow of Maradona if he does not win the world cup for his team. If his teammate Sergio Agüero hit form he could be a great pick for winning the golden boot.
Germany has created the best national system for bringing young players through the ranks and they have been reaping the rewards for the last few years. They are joint favorites with most bookies alongside Brazil and the team should be packed with players that get fantastic fantasy league football scores. Two players you should consider picking are Timo Werner and Leroy Sané who have both been excellent in the league this season.
Spain is not the dominant force that they used to be and have been in decline over the last couple of years. The striker position is still up for grabs with Álvaro Morata and Diego Costa been considered. Whichever one does get the role is sure to get a lot of points so it is worth keeping an eye on developments.
