    HOW TO PLAY - https://fantasy.fifa.com/en/howtoplay

    MANAGER SUBSTITUTIONS WITHIN A ROUND:

    After all matches on a single day have finished and before the next day's set of matches start, you can:

    • Replace any player (unless they were sent off) with one from your bench whose team is yet to play.
    • Change your captain (if he was not sent off) with a player from your squad whose team is yet to play.
    • Players who are substituted out will score 0 points. The captain bonus will be lost from your original captain if a new captain is selected. Substitutions and captain changes can't be cancelled once confirmed.
    • An unlimited number of manager substitutions can be made, although it is not possible to make them after games on the last day of the Round as all fixtures will have been completed.
    • If a manager substitution or captain change is made, then no automatic substitutions will take place in your team for that Round.

    SCHEDULE - Try spread players on different days to maximise subs

    I'm actually in the perfect time zone for this but I think I'll give it a miss.

    You can change every player in your line-up that has already played during the current round for any other relevant player in your squad that hasn’t already played. You can also change the captain as long as the new captain hasn’t already started to play.
    For example if you have a RUSSIAN DEFENDER on ROUND 1 and DAY 1 on Your Pitch and he did not perform as well as you expected, you can replace him with a someone from your bench that hasn’t already played on ROUND 1, DAY 2,3,4 or 5. You would lose the points from the RUSSIAN DEFENDER for the round but the new player might get more points.

    Interesting no budget on that one. McDonalds game should be open on 7th of June.

    Predicted lineups.

    Follows Australian timetable. So we have 6 transfers in Round 2, to remove the Russian and Egypt players (total of 4). Salah might not even play round 1.


    • Due to tournament scheduling, Russia and Egypt will play TWICE in Round 1 and not at all in Round 2 (group stage) of the tournament. In Round 1, you'll receive the total score from BOTH matches for any selected Russia or Egypt players on your team. They will not score in Round 2. Please keep this in mind when selecting your initial squad and making trades/substitutions for Round 2.




    Example team using Japan donut for captain loophole.

    @porky Haven't really looked at line ups yet, so not sure if Russia and Egypt players are worth picking sometimes single games guns are better then 2x spuds.

    Looks like the Fifa Maccas one is very close the site has gone down.

    Possibly, but I think they are worth the risk considering we get 6 transfers per round. This is more than enough to remove them in Round 2 and add better players (we can have 4 max from both Egypt and Russia).

    Lets give following example. The scoring allows 4 points just from playing 60mins. So if a Russian/Egypt midfielder plays 60mins both games and has 1 clean sheets, thats already 12 points.

    12 points is equivalent of Messi scoring 1 goal. Messi scored 4 goals total the entire last tournament.

    Still lots of spots left, Friday 1am is dead line - https://fantasy.fifa.com/en/leagues?code=534841554E48494747494E532323313834232 366616E74617379666F6F7479636C75622E636F6D232351454 F4F4E4E5854

    There are 3 spots on bench (excluding goal keeper). It is desirable to have players on day 6 on your bench, so you can see 11 player's scores before deciding on your substitutions on day 6.
    I put the budget players on day 6 in yellow (Colombia, Japan, Senegal, Poland.)
