Euro 2016 Fantasy Football tips Matchday 5: Captains
- By Football Burp
This Euro 2016 Fantasy Football tips Matchday 5 captains round-up, based on the official UEFA game sponsored by McDonald’s, is here to give you guidance in selecting a skipper for the quarter-finals.
With all Matchday 5 fixtures taking place from Thursday June 30th to Sunday July 3rd, recommended selections include players from France, Belgium, Wales and Portugal.
1. Antoine Griezmann, France (forward)
Scored twice against the Republic of Ireland to take the hosts through to the quarter-finals, and while Iceland will be tough opponents he still looks to be the man most likely in this round.
2. Romelu Lukaku, Belgium (forward)
Likely to keep his place for Friday’s quarter-final against Wales despite Michy Batshuayi’s goal-scoring cameo in the 4-0 win over Hungary, and could be up against a not-quite-fully-fit Ashley Williams after the Swansea City centre-back picked up a knock against Northern Ireland.
3. Gareth Bale, Wales (forward)
A Bale-inspired Wales looked devastating on the counter attack in beating Russia 3-0, and that’s most likely how they’ll have to take on an admittedly intimidating Belgium side.
4. Cristiano Ronaldo (forward)
Because he’s Ronaldo, isn’t he? Poland will be no easy fixture, mind, given that they’ve conceded just once in the tournament so far.
Good luck and happy selecting!
