Propel yourself to quarter-finals success with the help of this Euro 2016 Fantasy Football tips Matchday 5 forwards round-up, based on the official UEFA game sponsored by McDonald’s.
With all Matchday 5 fixtures taking place between Thursday June 30th to Sunday July 3rd, recommended selections include players from France, Portugal, Belgium and Wales.
Antoine Griezmann, France – €10.0m
Scored two second-half goals to get France to the quarter-finals at the expense of Republic of Ireland and is the tournament’s joint-top scorer on three, but England’s conquerors Iceland will be no pushovers.
Cristiano Ronaldo, Portugal – €12.0m
Poland may have a tight defence, but Ronaldo is Ronaldo – even in his current underwhelming form, he could pretty much do anything singlehandedly.
Romelu Lukaku/Michy Batshuayi, Belgium – €9.0m/6.0m
Everton man Lukaku is first-choice and probably likelier to start, but it’s not at all a certainty given that the more affordable Batshuayi was substituted on for him against Hungary and scored almost immediately. It’s potentially a tough call, this one.
Gareth Bale, Wales – €10.5m
The tournament’s joint-top scorer can never be overlooked, even if Belgium are the favourites in Friday’s quarter-final.
Good luck and happy selecting!
