Find a safe pair of hands with these McDonald’s FIFA World Cup Fantasy tips for goalkeepers in the semi-finals of Russia 2018’s official fantasy football.
With only four sides remaining, you can now select up to six players from each team – so bear this in mind when using your five free transfers.
And remember, there will be a third place playoff between the losing semi-finalists so each team still has two games left.
This might also be a good time to play your Maximum Captain chip, as semi-finals are often higher-scoring affairs than finals.
Recommended picks include players from France and England.
Hugo Lloris, FRA – 5.9m
With so few teams left you have to look at who the likely winners, and you’d have to say the winners of France v Belgium would be favourites.
Then you have to ask, which of those two sides is likelier to keep a clean sheet? Based on this World Cup so far, that would be France.
And even if they lose to Belgium, they’d still be favourites in a third place playoff against Croatia or England.
Jordan Pickford, ENG – 5.5m
Croatia v England is a tough one to call, but the Three Lions might be slight favourites on account of the Croatians having played 120 minutes against Russia.
Furthermore, Pickford is the man in form – and that can be a key consideration when making close calls in fantasy football.
Good luck and happy selecting!
