I will contact the winner via PM to sort out a few PSN related prizes. The many regions in the crew make it a little tricky since PSN codes are region locked.

Not sure what to suggest.

I made a new account as I had forgotten my login details.

I had to remove my mobile number and then put the exact number back in before it would accept it. Seriously if it just did an asterisk beside the offending line things would have been simpler.

Schumi had issues with phone number being incorrect. Must be a glitch.

Sane didn't get in Germany squad, he'll probably get removed from the game.

Other than that, nice team!

German team must be stacked!😵 He would walk into the line-up almost everywhere else.

Courtois, pique, otamendi and Layun, Di Maria, Matic, Modric, Bernardo Silva, CR7, Neymar and Lewandowski are my chosen ones, for now...

 

Though I might change the goalkeeper... Not that he isn´t a great goalkeeper, but because I still don´t have any sort of faith in the Belgium squad, even as amazing as that squad is...

Put a quick team together. Will most likely change before the tourney starts.

It’s nice to see so many people putting faith in the England team by adding their players. 😂

Is there not a risk that Messi, Griezmann, Ronaldo, Muller, Iniesta and such are too old (as in not hungry enough) to perform on top, are they worth their pricetag?

Just put in a team. Autopicked for now, I'll have to do some research before the start. The World Cup is the only time I watch any soccer, but it always seems to be a memorable experience. Hoping this makes it even more exciting to watch this time around.

Can't say if they will be worth their pricetag but of course they will be hungry for something shiny. It's the world cup!😁

In other news, Thomas Delaney has become the most expensive Danish player ever with his move from Bremen to Dortmund. At £2m he's gonna be bargain of the tourney. Midfielder with a deadly shot from outside the box and a beast in the air. And with him being Danish means he will play all the way to the final.😎

Will make some changes depending on the schedule of matches so my players are scoring points early on.

Not sure if Busquets will start for Spain, if so, he'll be decent for 2.5M.

The Canadian Foot Hockey Team is ready for puck drop kickoff. Very Belgian heavy for now, at least until they play England.
