World Cup Dream Team – Eight transfers to make for the quarter-finals

first_img 9 9 6. Paulinho (Brazil) – £3million 5. Fagner (Brazil) – £2.5million 9 1. Harry Kane (England) – £6million 9 Speaking of cheap, if you’re having money trouble you might want to take a punt on Swedish forward Toivonen. He scored against Germany earlier in the tournament and hit their winner against France in qualifying. He’s the man for the big occasion and could be the Allen key to your side’s success. And an ex-Sunderland flop knocking England out sounds about right. 3. Diego Laxalt (Uruguay) – £1.5million Tottenham Hotspur fans are still scratching their heads about this man but he could bring them joy if they whack him in their Dream Teams XI. He’s due a goal and could really do a job on the Belgian midfield, who are likely to be outnumbered by Brazil’s. If they leave the roaming Barcelona star he might end up on the end of a cross or two. 9 9 With Neymar spending 14 minutes on the floor during the World Cup, so far. Flying wing-back Meunier might just punish his laziness. All the rolling around won’t help Brazil if he can’t pin back the Paris Saint-Germain star, who will attempt to gallivant down the flank and fire in crosses to Romelu Lukaku. If you thought Neymar had the worst barnet at World Cup 2018, you haven’t watch the Genoa star in action. Another attacking full-back, he’s been brilliant since coming into the team, and is well on the way to earning a summer transfer. He could be a brilliant cheap option as you try to get some superstars in your team. 4. Lucas Hernandez (France) – £2millioncenter_img When a player is getting comparisons with Pele you know it’s time to throw him into your Dream Team. His pace had Argentina scared stiff and caused Marcos Rojo to give away a penalty in the round of 16. He’s also netted three goals and may become the first person ever to make Diego Godin panic. 9 But who do you need to bring in to replace them? See our top Dream Team transfer picks below.8. Kylian Mbappe (France) – £3.5million Monsieur of the dark arts, thanks to Diego Simeone, the marauding left-back hasn’t scored a goal like Benjamin Pavard but he’s got more Dream Team points than the curly-haired Stuttgart star from full-back. 9 England are into the World Cup quarter-finals after beating Colombia on penalties. 2. Ola Toivonen (Sweden) – £1million It’s okay, you aren’t the only person who had never heard about him before the World Cup, even if a football hipster is crowing about his three games at PSV Eindhoven. He’s amassed 24 points so far and will start every match they play due to Danilo’s injury. 9 7. Thomas Meunier (Belgium) – £3million We’re into the World Cup 2018 quarter-finals over in Russia so now it’s time to make more changes to your Dream Team.One way or another, you’re likely to have had some of your players eliminated, especially with Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo now out What are we saying?
