Notes

  • My strategy for Japan is changing a little. Nearly everyone seems prone to rotation in recent qualifiers and friendlies. So I’m going with the few assets I feel comfortable with (Tomiyasu and Suzuki).
  • I’ll have one captain that I feel good about on each day.
  • Meshaal, Boyle, Taremi, Son, Al Dawsari. Ali Jasim also comes in since my last draft, one of the cheapest options for a mid who looks nailed and fairly attacking. Furthermore, Iraq have a good opening fixture against Indonesia.
  • Harry Souttar makes it into my draft, his goal record for Australia (10 in 22 caps) is too good to ignore.

Notes

  • Son and Azmoun are a lock.
  • Duke is great option for Australia with their great attack.
  • Son will be my captain.
  • I looked for mid-priced players and excellent statistics.
  • It was also important for me to cover the best attacking teams that I expected to reach a further place in the tournament.
  • At the back I looked for cheap players who were nailed in terms of gametime.
  • I don’t think there will be many clean sheets for most teams due to the strength of the competition and teams involved.
  • Goalkeeper Suzuki was the best option for me as cover for the Japanese defence.

Notes

  • Not many changes compared to the first draft as I am happy with the squad.
  • Bos is in for Jones (Australia), I wasn’t sure about Jones being 100% nailed.
  • The only two spots that I have thought about changing are: Ueda (Japan) because of the Japan rotation but also Abdallah Ramadan (UAE) because I wanted some more attacking players.
  • Furthermore, in this team there’s players playing on five different days to maximise the chances of returns and captaincy.
  • I still want some other players (especially in attack, Almoez, Wu Lei, Duke and Mabkhout) but we can not have them all.

@FantasyHalf

Notes

  • I am set up with players playing first obviously.
  • I’m probably going play triple captain and rotate until it lands 1st round and I am expecting a good Matchday rank.

@fpl_habesha

Notes

  • Son and Terami are basically a lock in my team.
  • Suzuki is the best GK in the 5M bracket.
  • Double Iran attack and double Australia and Japan defence is a staple for me.

Notes

  • Maeda – I expect Japan to play in a more attacking 442 formation against Vietnam and Indonesia in MD1 & MD3. Predicting the Japan line-up is difficult. However, my best guess is that Maeda starts in easy fixtures while Ueda is also preserved for the tougher ones (MD2 v Iraq and playoffs).
  • Asano 8.5M could also start alongside Maeda against weak opposition in 442 ahead of Ueda.
  • Tamari – Third forward position has many “spicy” options like KOR Cho 9.5M, KSA Al Shehri 9.5M or even Kyrgyz Kojo 7M against Thailand defence MD1. I am betting against Malaysia defence for MD1 by picking the Jordan winger Mousa Tamari 7.5M. Jordan also have centre forward Al Naimat 8.5M available if you can find the +1M extra funds.
  • Bayesh – Iraq national team player of the year 2023. Like Japan, Iraq also get to play against Indonesia and Vietnam in the group stage. There are many young talented Iraq wingers available affordably in Fantasy (Al Saed 6M, Ali Jasim 6.5M, Iqbal 7M). But, I believe that they will get rotated more than Bayesh. Also Bayesh even play CAM in 4231 formation instead of a winger position.
  • O’runov (Uronov) – Uzbekistan is possibly the third most effective attack in Asian Cup after Japan and Korea. So it would feel almost criminal not to pick any of their attacking players. O’runov and Shukurov are both 7.5M mids. But, O’runov as a winger also plays a little bit closer to the opposition goal.
  • Faezullaev 6.5M was impressive in U20 team but his xMins are significantly lower.
  • Homam Ahmed – My day 1 captaincy option. I have seen him called “the Qatari Robertson”. Qatar have a relatively easy group A (Lebanon, Tajikistan & China). So, an attacking fullback seems perfect.
  • Lee Ki-Je – 4.5M defender for a top defence who plays out-of-position in the midfield. He also puts a lot of early crosses into the box. He could also be taking some left-footed set pieces as well. Recent Kim Jin-su injury news mean he should also be pretty much nailed for the whole group stage as well. He should easily be the best budget defender in the game.
  • I also have 0.5M in the bank.
