Remember to get in early and make your substitutions for today's matches. If you have players who have under-performed and also have some players yet to play on the bench, this is the time to get them into the match. I have put M. Olssen and Y. Cabaye into the game for two of my players (van der Wiel and Strinic) who only scored 2 points apiece.

This is also the time to start thinking about your Wild Card. If you stocked up on the Dutch (who face Germany next) and didn't buy any Italy or Russia (or you have some guys who are injured/not starting) then this may be the time to blow it all up. My preference would be to wait until the time between the 2nd and 3rd match days but I may well want to do some major shifting around before the entire thing gets away from me. Remember, once we get to the elimination rounds, the number of players you have to choose from goes down so it will be difficult to make up a lot of ground.

Today, I have Ibra, M. Olssen, and Cabaye. No English or Ukranian players for me.

Hope that helps you as you think about your next moves in the fantasy game. Enjoy the matches, we'll be here as work allows us to be.
