I already have Payet and Draxler in midfield. Payet has been beyond brilliant for France and should be on the scoresheet tomorrow as well. Draxler did not start the game against Italy, but that was because Low deemed it tactically fit. I am sure Draxler will return to the starting line up tomorrow especially as Gomez won’t be featuring in the game.
Ozil is the first midlfielder that I get in for this game. For Germany to have any chance of making it to the finals Ozil needs to be at the top of his game tonight and he has been the lone warrior for Germany in the midfield. If Germany score, he should be able to get an assist at least.
Renato Sanches took the world by storm when Bayern Munich signed him for 30 million and he has further acknowledged that fact by scoring a wonderous goal in the quarterfinals to bring Portugal back in the tie. Now, the fact that he comes in for just 4.4 million provides great balance to my side.
Paul Pogba is my last pick in this category. He has been brilliant throughout the tournament for France but hasn’t managed to gather a lot of points. All that could change tonight as he has had a taste of goal scoring in the last game against Iceland. Amongst the midfielders on offer, Pogba seems to be the best option, get him in!
