Edit: Big updates thanks to /u/julianface and /u/jamiefpl! I've incorporated their hard work into this post for more visibility For those of you that aren't aware, https://sheplays.com.au will be doing a fantasy game for the women's world cup and they just opened up the team selection yesterday! It's a bit hard to find on their website but once you're logged in just click the dropdown on your name in the top right and you'll see an option for "My Team". The format isn't too far off what we have for FPL, and here's a rundown of the major differences that I posted in a comment the other day: >* All players get the same points for scoring. This makes mids much less appealing imo, especially since a majority of wingers are classed as forwards. I think players also get points for other things similar to how keepers get save points, which means defenders and in particular defensive mids are more viable >* You pick 2 keepers, 4 defenders, 4 mids, 3 forwards, and 2 of anything you like, but there are fewer allowed formations (no 5-4-1, 4-5-1, or 5-2-3) >* There's a much lower threshold for prices. Your budget is 8m and prices range from 100k to 1m. In FPL terms, that's equivalent to a range of 1.25m to 12.5m, meaning you can easily afford more premium players because the budget options are *really fucking cheap* They haven't finalized the scoring metrics yet, but expect it to be similar to what they posted [here](https://twitter.com/sheplays_au/status/1133714848561283072). Anyone who's playing can use this thread to talk about our picks and discuss team-building strategies. I've spent an incredible amount of time researching all of the teams and what positions everyone plays because I was originally planning on running my own fantasy league among friends and had to assign positions to the players, so I'd love to spread my knowledge here with some brief overviews of the teams! I'll add what I know below as the day goes on, but feel free to get the discussion started below! ----- #Group A ##France (#4) >PLAYER TO WATCH: Les Bleues have an imposing arsenal of attacking talent, however it is their star center back **Wendie Renard** [DF, $1m] who may be most vital to their chances of lifting the cup. She has won the Division 1 Feminine an incredible eleven times with Olympique Lyon, and was named in the 2015 FIFA World Cup All Star team. France are the hosts and have one of the better teams, so I expect them to do very well. Renard might be expensive, but she looks like one of the biggest set-piece threats in the competition with 20 goals in just over 100 caps for her country. Keeper **Sarah Bouhaddi** (GK, $650k) also looks promising, and star player **Eugenie Le Sommer** (FW, $1m) should put in a good performance. There are some good mid-budget options as well in striker **Valerie Gauvin** (FW, $600k), CAM **Gaetane Thiney** (MF, $550k), and fullback **Marion Torrent** (DF, $500k), so there are lots of ways to buy into the French team. Corners: **Elise Bussaglia** (MF, $400k) Direct FKs: **Amadine Henry** (MF, $1m) Penalties: Le Sommer ##South Korea (#14) >PLAYER TO WATCH: FA WSL fans will know that Chelsea’s talented playmaker **Ji So-yun** [FW, $700k] will be a player to watch out for at this tournament. After making her debut for the Korean national team at 15, she has now amassed over 100 caps for the Taegeuk Nangja, and will likely be the fulcrum of their attacking play. To add to the above, Ji has scored 54 goals in 115 caps for her country, so expect her to be the team's top scorer. Fullback **Jang Sel-gi** (DF, $350k) looks like a good budget/differential option with 11 goals in 54 caps, which is pretty high for a defender and implies that she gets up the field a lot. Corners: ? Direct FKs: ? Penalties: Ji So-yun ##Norway (#12) >PLAYER TO WATCH: Opposition defences will have to keep an eye on pacey winger **Caroline Graham Hansen** [MF, $650k]. She is no stranger to success, having won two Frauen-Bundesliga titles with Vfl Wolfsburg, and was part of the Norway team that made the Euro 2013 final. Caroline Hansen is the first name on my team sheet because she's the only player I've yet to find that is truly OOP. She's listed as a mid but plays most often as a striker, so she looks like an excellent option to get another striker on your team. **Isabell Herlovsen** (FW, $400k) usually pairs with her as another striker, and her price is pretty good. Keep an eye on **Stine Hovland** (DF, $200k) who recently broke into the national team as a CB and could be one of their starters. On another note, it's sad to see that Ada Hegerberg is not representing her country as a form of protest against the NFF's poor treatment of the women's team, but the Norwegian team has been pretty solid despite missing the first women's Ballon D'Or winner. I hope that in four years' time we will see better and more equal treatment of women in football and a return for Ada. Corners: ? Direct FKs: ? Penalties: Caroline Hansen ##Nigeria (#38) >PLAYER TO WATCH: Super Falcons star **Asisat Oshoala** [FW, $600k] will be one to look out for in France this year. The powerful striker was recently involved in this year’s Champions League Final for Barcelona, and has won the FA Cup with Arsenal, and the Chinese Super League with Dalian Quanjian FC. She was also named African Women’s footballer of the year in 2014, 2016, and 2017! Oshoala could be an interesting differential, but the price is a bit steep so I'm not sure if it's worth the risk. The rest of the team is really only good as enablers (flashbacks to Uzoho from last year's world cup), with **Rita Chikwelu** (MF, $200k) boasting 15 goals in 33 matches. Corners: ? Direct FKs: ? Penalties: Oshoala ----- #Group B ##Germany (#2) >PLAYER TO WATCH: Exciting young forward **Lea Schüller** [FW, $600k] is set to have a breakout tournament, after an exceptional past 12 months of football. Highlights include scoring all 4 goals in Germany’s 4-0 win over Czech Republic during qualifying, while she was the sole goal scorer in the 1-0 win over France earlier this year. The 21 year old is also prolific at club level, where she has already scored over 40 goals for SGS Essen! Schuller seems like an incredible deal at just $600k, as she has a very prolific record at left winger. Striker **Alexandra Popp** ($900k) and CAM **Dzsenifer Marozsan** ($1m) both have very good scoring records as well, and are worth heavy consideration for your team. Despite being so highly ranked, there are a few budget options in defense! **Maria Hegering** (DF, $175k) has played as a CB 3 of Germany's 4 matches this year and offers outstanding value, while **Giulia Gwinn** (DF, $250k) has also started each of those matches. She normaly plays as a fullback but started one game as a winger, so keep an eye on her as well. Corners: ? Direct FKs: **Sarah Dabritz** (MF, $900k)/Marozsan Penalties: Marozsan ##China (#16) >PLAYER TO WATCH: **Wang Shuang** [MF, $600k] is the only Steel Rose player not based in China, as she currently plays for Paris Saint Germain in France. She adds a lot of experience to this side, having played over 90 international matches, and will head to France in excellent form, having just won the 2018 Asian Women’s Player of the Year award! From what I can tell, **Li Ying** [MF, $400k] should be another good option and is a viable alternative to Wang Shuang. **Peng Shimeng** (GK, $100k) is new to the team but has played in most of their recent matches, so she could be an excellent bench keeper. **Luo Guiping** (DF, $125k) has also played all of their matches in 2019 as a fullback. China is a pretty good team and could be a dark horse in their group, so don't sleep on these enablers. Corners: ? Direct FKs: ? Penalties: ? ##Spain (#13) >PLAYER TO WATCH: La Roja forward **Jennifer Hermoso** [FW, $650k] was in excellent form during qualification, creating more assists (9) than any other player in UEFA, as well as scoring 7 goals herself. Her form has also transferred to club level, scoring 18 goals as she helped Atlético Madrid claim the 2019 Primera Division title. I don't know much about this team, but Jenni seems like a good deal to me. Aside from that I'm not really sure how they'll line up. Corners: ? Direct FKs: ? Penalties: Jenni ##South Africa (#49) >PLAYER TO WATCH: Australian W-League fans will know to keep an eye on experienced midfielder **Refiloe Jane** [MF, $200k]. Fifi was one of Canberra United’s key players last season, and if she can continue her hot form in the national team setup, opposition defences are going to have a hard time keeping the Bayana Bayana at bay. Not many promising players for South Africa, but if you want to take a really wild punt then CB **Noko Matlou** ($175k) usually plays as a striker and has an impressive 61 goals for South Africa, but the current coach has been playing her as a defender. It's not impossible that she plays as a striker, but it's definitely a very big punt. Corners: ? Direct FKs: ? Penalties: **Leandra Smeda** (MF, $175k) ----- #Group C ##Australia (#6) >PLAYER TO WATCH: While most eyes will be on forward Sam Kerr, it is **Alanna Kennedy** [DF, $650k] at the other end of the field who will be one of the most important players for Australia. The expert defenders composure, and ability to play out from the back, are key aspects of the Matildas game plan. She is also an ace free kick specialist, capable of scoring some spectacular goals. As one of the best female players in the world right now, **Sam Kerr** (FW, $1m) will undoubtedly be not only a popular choice but a good one as well. If she's too pricey, winger/striker **Caitlin Foord** (FW, $650k) or winger **Lisa De Vanna** (FW, $450k) are good options on a tighter budget, but be aware that De Vanna is getting a bit old and didn't start in their most recent game against the Netherlands. Corners: ? Direct FKs: ? Penalties: Kerr ##Italy (#15) >PLAYER TO WATCH: Juventus star **Barbara Bonansea** [MF, $450k] is the Azzure’s wildcard. Renown for scoring wonder-goals, the pacey midfielder has no trouble leaving opposition defenders in her wake. Her 6 assists and 3 goals during qualifying exemplify just how important she is to this team. Aside from Bonansea, I'm not really sure. This is another team that I'm having difficulty predicting lineups for. They also may struggle to advance, as the competition between Australia, Italy, and Brazil should be tight. Corners: ? Direct FKs: ? Penalties: **Alice Parisi** (MF, $275k) ##Brazil (#10) >PLAYER TO WATCH: France 2019 will be **Formiga**’s [MF, $600k] 7th World Cup - a feat no other player has ever achieved! The Brazil legend has over 160 caps for As Canarinhas, and has played in leagues all over the world, including Brazil, Sweden, USA, and France. Brazil confuses me because most everyone goes by one name and a lot of them are pretty similar... Anyway, **Marta** (FW, $900k) is their star player and a solid choice. She's one of the most prolific strikers in the competition, with 110 goals in 133 caps for her country. Their defense appears to be a good source of budget options, with both **Monica** and **Erika** likely to start at CB for only $250k each. **Aline** and **Barbara** are also cheap at $200k for a keeper, but it's unclear who will start. **Bia Zaneratto** (FW, $300k) usually starts as a striker alongside Marta and is just coming back from injury, so keep an eye on her. As with Italy, Brazil may struggle to advance in one of the more competitive groups. Corners: ? Direct FKs: Marta Penalties: **Andressinha** (MF, $500k) I think, but the names are confusing me so much right now ##Jamaica (#53) >PLAYER TO WATCH: Exciting young forward Kayla McCoy scored over 30 goals for Duke University, before being snatched up by the Houston Dash this year. She made her debut for Jamaica in a 1-0 win over Chile in February, and should add another dimension to Jamaica’s already dangerous attack. Jamaica has *the best* budget option in **Khadija Shaw** ($125k). Her price is almost as low as it gets, and she is a very prolific scorer with 31 goals in 22 caps for her country, including both goals in their last game against Scotland. Shaw is damn near essential as an enabler. Corners: **Sashana Campbell** (MF, $100k) Direct FKs: Shaw Penalties: **Deneisha Blackwood** (DF, $125k) ----- #Group D ##England (#3) >PLAYER TO WATCH: There are not many players in the world game more exciting to watch than England’s creative maestro **Fran Kirby** [FW, $900k]. The diminutive forward has scored over 10 goals for her national side, but it is her ability to create opportunities for the players around her that makes her so important to the Lionesses’ hopes of becoming world champions. I'm having a tough time picking players from England. The lineup is harder for me to predict and not many of the players aren't very prolific. Fullback **Lucy Bronze** (DF, $1m) seems like a good option in defense, and **Steph Houghton** (DF, $900k) offers decent set-piece threat from CB, but they're both very pricey. **Ellen White** (FW, $650k) usually plays as the striker and is a decent price. Corners: **Beth Mead** (FW, $350k) Direct FKs: Houghton Penalties: **Nikita Parris** (FW, $700k) ##Scotland (#20) >PLAYER TO WATCH: Captain **Rachel Corsie** [DF, $550k] is the rock of this team, and will ensure that Scotland are not easy to break down. She has a wealth of experience, having played over 100 international matches! Fans at Canberra United and Utah Royals will have seen first hand how strong she is defensively, and how well she leads from the backline. I seem to recall reading somewhere that Scotland have a good set-piece game but I can't find that article any more. Regardless, CBs Corsie and **Jennifer Beattie** (DF, $500k) have 16 and 22 goals respectively, and on average they score once every 5-7 games which is a pretty good rate. CAM **Kim Little** (MF, $900k) is the team's star player and should put in a good performance. Fullbacks **Kristy Smith** (DF, $200k) and **Nicola Docherty** (DF, $150k) look like excellent budget options, as well as keeper **Lee Alexander** (GK, $150k). Corners: ? Direct FKs: ? Penalties: **Caroline Weir** (MF, $400k) ##Argentina (#37) >PLAYER TO WATCH: Argentina’s attacking fortunes will rely heavily on playmaker **Estefania Banini** [MF, $250k]. The talented midfielder currently plays for Levante in Spain, and has also made 40 appearances in the NWSL for the Washington Spirit. Not much else to say here for me. The Argentinian team seems like a great place to look for budget options, with Banini coming in at just $250k. Their main striker **Sole Jaimes** could also be worth consideration at $300k, but I think there are better budget options. Argentina may struggle though, since they're up against last year's runners-up Japan and the #3 ranked England team, and Scotland is no pushover either. Corners: ? Direct FKs: ? Penalties: **Belen Potassa** (FW, $125k) ##Japan (#7) >PLAYER TO WATCH: Japan legend **Saki Kumagai** [DF, $900k] knows what it takes to win a World Cup final, having scored the winning penalty in the 2011 decider. She has won 6 Division 1 Feminin and 4 Champions League titles with Lyon, along with over 100 caps for her national team. All of that experience and winning mentality will provide a huge boost for her teammates, especially in the knockout stage of the Cup. Japan seems to have a lot of rotation and is hard to predict. Despite this, CB **Moeka Minami** (DF, 175k) and fullback **Risa Shimizu** (DF, $300k) have started most or all of Japan's recent matches and should be starting here. Striker **Rikako Kobayashi** (FW, $200k) has recently broken into the first team and started the last 6 matches, so she could be your best option in attack. Corners: ? Direct FKs: ? Penalties: **Kumi Yokoyama** (FW, $400k) ----- #Group E ##Canada (#5) >PLAYER TO WATCH: Young defender **Kadeisha Buchanan** [DF, $650k] is a rising star of Canada’s national team. The 23 year old has already amassed over 80 caps for the Canucks, and has experience playing on the biggest stage, being a key player at the 2015 tournament. She’s also won three Champions League titles with Lyon, so know’s what it takes to play in a championship winning team! From what I've been hearing, this Canadian team is one of the best the country has ever fielded. **Christine Sinclair** (FW, $900k) is the main striker and should have plenty of goals, while keeper **Stephanie Labbe** (GK, $450k) looks like a great deal. Although **Sophie Schmidt** (MF, $550k) may also seem appealing, I'd avoid her since she's POO (plays as a fullback, listed as a mid) and will miss out on the clean sheet points she deserves. **Ashley Lawrence** (DF, $550k) is the opposite though, and is known to play OOP as a winger. Corners: **Janine Beckie** (FW, $400k) Direct FKs: ? Penalties: Sinclair ##Cameroon (#46) >PLAYER TO WATCH: Defender **Estelle Johnson** [DF, $300k] was born in Cameroon, but has spent most of her life living in the US, and only made her debut for the Indomitable Lionesses on 17th of May this year. The Sky Blues defender is great pick up, with her experience playing in the NWSL and the Australian W-League likely to provide a huge boost for Cameroon’s World Cup chances! Honestly, I'd avoid Cameroon entirely... Corners: ? Direct FKs: ? Penalties: **Gaelle Enganamouit** (FW, $125k) ##New Zealand (#19) >PLAYER TO WATCH: With her experience in defence and ability to attack down the left flank, captain **Ali Riley** [DF, $500k] will be vital to the Fern’s hopes of making a first appearance in the knock-out stage. New Zealand plays with wingbacks more often than not, so they have some interesting options in defense. RWB seems to get rotated a bit, but Riley usually plays as LWB and even played OOP as a winger recently against the US, making her an interesting differential choice. Striker **Sarah Gregorious** (FW, $250k) is a good budget option and is the team's top scorer, so I'm not sure why she's priced so low. Corners: ? Direct FKs: ? Penalties: **Rosie White** (FW, $400k) ##Netherlands (#8) >PLAYER TO WATCH: Young forward **Vivianne Miedema** [FW, $900k] has been in terrific form at both National and Club level, and is poised to have a break out tournament in France. The 22 year old already has over 50 goals for the Oranje Leeuwinnen! Miedema looks like the go-to option from the Netherlands, but there are a lot of options everywhere from the current Euro winners. All of their defenders are $450k or less, so look for some mid-priced options here, with fullbacks **Kika van Es** (DF, $350k) and **Desiree van Lunteren** (DF, $400k) at the top of my list. Wingers **Lieke Martens** (FW, $1m) and **Shanice van de Sanden** (FW, $700k) should also be very prolific, while midfielders **Sherida Spitse** (MF, $650k) and **Danielle van de Donk** (MF, $700k) find themselves in scoring positions often. Corners: ? Direct FKs: Martens/Spitse Penalties: Spitse ----- #Group F ##United States (#1) >PLAYER TO WATCH: Defensive midfielder **Julie Ertz** [MF, $900k] will be vital to Team USA’s attempt to retain their title. A strong defender, she also has great vision and is a genuine goal scoring threat. Opposition teams will need to close her down in midfield if they are to have any hope of curtailing USA’s imposing attacking arsenal. Pretty much any starting US player is a good option. **Alex Morgan** (FW, $1m) is one of the golden boot favorites, keeper **Alyssa Naeher** (GK, $650k) has shown that she can get Ederson-style assists in her game against Australia two months ago, fullback **Crystal Dunn** (DF, $900m) boasts 24 goals in 83 games, ... The list goes on. The hardest part here is picking which ones you want, since they're too expensive to have a lot of. One player to avoid is last cup's joint golden boot winner Carli Lloyd, who will likely only be used as a rotation player. Corners: **Megan Rapinoe** (FW, $1m) Direct FKs: ? Penalties: Morgan ##Thailand (#34) >PLAYER TO WATCH: Midfielder **Kanjana Sungngoen** [MF, $200k] will play a vital role in unleashing Thailand’s forward line. She is also a reliable goal scorer, having picked up over 30 goals in her international career. Previously I said avoid Thailand, but apparently Sungngoen has 30 goals in just 47 games, so she could be an excellent budget option. Corners: ? Direct FKs: ? Penalties: Sungngoen ##Chile (#39) >PLAYER TO WATCH: Chile will be led by their captain, and star goalkeeper, **Christiane Endler** [GK, $650k]. Playing for Paris Saint Germain in France, she is used to coming up against some of the best players in the world. Having a player with that experience is going to be priceless for Chile, as they make their first appearance at the World Cup! ShePlays is recommending Endler, but I wouldn't advise that. Labbe is $200k cheaper and much more likely to get a clean sheet, and Chile will struggle a lot against the US and Sweden. Corners: ? Direct FKs: ? Penalties: **Karen Araya** (MF, $275k) ##Sweden (#9) >PLAYER TO WATCH: Experienced Chelsea shot-stopper **Hedvig Lindahl** [GK, $550k] is one of the best in the business. With over 150 caps for her national team, she knows what it takes to stand up and perform on the World’s biggest stage. Sweden’s defenders will be able to play with confidence, knowing they’ve got Lindahl in goals behind them. Sweden is the other team in the competition that's known to play with wingbacks, but there seems to be a lot of rotation. LWB **Jonna Andersson** (DF, $350k) seems to get the most playtime of all the wingbacks/fullbacks though. Striker **Stine Blackstenius** (FW, $650k), winger **Sofia Jakobsson** (FW, $500k), and CAM/winger **Kosovare Asllani** (MF, $650k) are the main attacking threats for anyone looking to invest in the Swedish team. Corners: ? Direct FKs: ? Penalties: **Caroline Seger** (MF, $600k) ----- Disclaimers: I am not affiliated with ShePlays or anything else related, just really excited that I can satisfy my addiction over the summer 🙃.
