Consider your transfers with these McDonald’s FIFA World Cup Fantasy tips for forwards in Round 3 of Russia 2018’s official fantasy football.

Still have your Wildcard? Then this looks like the time to use it, since you get unlimited transfers again before the Round of 16.

This effectively gives you a free hit for these final group stage matches, so consider who’s likely to rest players and who will go all out.

You’ve had the chance to see every team now so you should be in a better position to judge who has the best fixtures.

You’re allowed to make substitutions from day to day within each round, so it might be worth saving funds to fill out your bench.

With this in mind, recommended picks include players from Spain, Mexico, Nigeria and Iceland.

Diego Costa, ESP – 9m

With three goals so far, Costa will be sniffing the Golden Boot – and you wouldn’t back against him adding to his tally against Morocco.

Javier Hernández/Hirving Lozano, MEX – 8.5m/8m

Mexico are through to the last 16 but they could do with beating Sweden to finish top of their group and ensure a favourable draw.

Ahmed Musa, NGA – 7.5m

After two goals against Iceland, the Leicester man will be licking his lips in anticipation of facing an Argentina side in disarray.

Alfreð Finnbogason, ISL – 6.5m

Iceland need to beat Croatia, and they’re in with a chance since their opponents are likely to field a weakened team with top spot already assured.

Good luck and happy selecting!
