Consider your transfers with these McDonald’s FIFA World Cup Fantasy tips for forwards in the quarter-finals of Russia 2018’s official fantasy football.

You can now select up to five players from each team, so bear that in mind when choosing how to use your three free transfers.

If you need to make more transfers on top of this then you can, although you’ll incur a four-point deduction each time.

Now for the recommended forward picks, including players from England, France, Uruguay, Croatia and Russia.

Harry Kane, ENG – 11.2m

It’s very possible you’ll only be able to afford one premium-cost striker, in which case it may come down to Kane v Neymar.

England’s Kane has the better fixture on paper – he plays Sweden while Neymar plays Belgium, although the latter’s leaky defence is a leveller here.

Nevertheless, Kane is cheaper and in better goal-scoring form, with six goals at this World Cup so far compared to Neymar’s two.

Kylian Mbappé, FRA – 9m

Exploded into life with two goals against Argentina in the round of 16, but Uruguay’s tight defence is unlikely to be as accommodating.

Even so, Mbappé has the kind of talent that could make him a bargain here at 9m.

Luis Suárez, URU – 10.5m

France conceded three against Argentina in their last game, so Suárez will be licking his lips in anticipation.

However, his strike partner Edinson Cavani could miss out through injury.

Mario Mandžukić, CRO – 8.9m

Scored his second goal of the tournament to equalise against Denmark last time out, and he’ll again have some excellent midfielders supporting him against Russia.

Artem Dzyuba, RUS – 8.1m

Russia’s first-choice penalty taker, Dzyuba has three goals so far at this World Cup and could pose a significant aerial threat to Croatia.

Roared on by a supportive home crowd, he’s bound to be a focal point for the host nation’s attacks.
