We take a look at the players you should consider for your team
Saturday 9th June: Netherlands v Denmark 17:00 | Germany v Portugal 19:45
Goalkeeper – Manuel Neuer (Germany)
He’s expensive, costing £9m in Fantasy League Classic, and will be up against some brilliant attacking talent in the form of Nani and Cristiano Ronaldo, but Germany’s superior organisation and Manuel Neuer’s proven skill in goal ensures that he’s still a dependable first round pick.
Defender - Gregory van der Wiel (Netherlands)
The Netherlands will hope to pick up a clean sheet against the Danish, who scored only 15 goals in qualifying.
The pace of Gregory van der Wiel will also make him a genuine attacking threat as the Dutch look to build on a hugely impressive qualifying record of 37 goals in 10 matches.
He’s £10m so not cheap, but has a chance to score fantasy football points at both ends.
Midfielder – Mesut Ozil (Germany)
At £13m Mesut Ozil doesn’t come cheap but you have to fancy him against a Portuguese side that let in 12 goals in qualifying.
He’s scored 8 goals already for his country and will be looking to provide a whole lot more, so is a fantasy football manager’s dream pick.
Midfielder – Christian Eriksen (Denmark)
The Netherlands have shown that they can be susceptible to the counter-attack.
If van der Wiel finds himself too far forward, Wilfred Bouma and the inexperienced Jetro Williems will have trouble containing this fleet-footed playmaker.
At £8.5m, the creativity and flair of Christian Eriksen could bring some surprise success if included.
Forward – Klaas-Jan Huntelaar (Netherlands)
Robin van Persie may be the darling of the English sporting press, but Klaas-Jan Huntelaar has been the main man for the Netherlands recently, notching up 12 goals in his eight qualifying matches.
Even with a price tag of £13.5m, Huntelaar will be good value for money as the Oranje look to lay down a marker against group underdogs Denmark.
