Euro Fantasy Scout for Round of 16
The knockout phase of Euro 2016 started with a thrilling encounter between Poland and Switzerland, where Shaqiri scored a stunner to level the match. But Xhaka was unable to handle the ‘penalty shootout’ pressure and thus Switzerland had to bow out despite playing an impressive game.
In the second game Wales made history by reaching the quarter finals, after a Bale led move ended up in the back of the net in the dying moments of the game.
The final game of the day between Croatia and Portugal was hyped up to be one of the best games in the upper bracket, but it failed to live up to expectations as none of the players could come up with the goods. It took 117 minutes before someone could come up with a shot on goal. And despite Croatia’s dominance in the game, they had to give into a Quaresma goal right at the end. Tears started flowing as Portugal secured a highly undeserved victory but then Football games aren’t decided by the amount of chances you create, they are decided by the amount of chances you take.
On the Fantasy front, Bale and Ronaldo both came up with an assist each and thus helped me gain something out of the day, as none of my other players could come up with the necessary spark to lead their team(and my fantasy side) to victory.
Round of 16 Day 2
Manuel Neuer is in my starting XI for the game tonight and hence I don’t need to make any substitutions for this category.
My second keeper is a dummy one and I won’t be using him, not now, not in any of the future rounds.
