World Cup Fantasy 2022: What’s left to play for in Matchday 3?

Going into Matchday 3, your transfer targets may hinge on what’s left to play for in these final group games.

The three sides that have already qualified for the last 16 may decide to rest a few key assets, while the two eliminated nations could opt to give squad players a run-out ahead of the flight home.

In a preview of Fantasy Football Scout’s full article, here is a group-by-group look at what’s left to play for.

GROUP A

2Ecuador211031+24
3Senegal21013303
4Qatar (E)200215-40

Qatar are out, while the team they face in their final group game, the Netherlands, are through with a mere draw against the hosts.

Senegal or Ecuador will qualify with a win, with the latter progressing if their head-to-head clash on Tuesday ends in a draw – so expect risks to be kept to a minimum by the South American side.

GROUP B

1England211062+44
2Iran210146-23
3United States20201102
4Wales201113-21

All four sides can still qualify for the round of 16 going into Tuesday’s Matchday 3.

Wales’ choices are to win by a four-goal margin against England and qualify at the Three Lions’ expense, or chalk up a victory of any kind and hope that Iran draw with the USA.

Winner takes all in the Iran v United States game, while Gareth Southgate’s troops would have to capitulate spectacularly to be on the next plane back home. Only a win will ensure top spot and a likely meeting with Ecuador or Senegal, however.
