bet365 launches World Cup Fantasy Football

While the pause in the Premier League season means a pause for bet365's Fantasy Football, it also means the start of bet365's World Cup Fantasy Football!

Players will be tasked with picking a squad of 15 players - a starting XI and four subs - as well as nominating a captain, who'll score double points, and a vice captain who'll score double points if your captain doesn't play.

The budget is set at £90m for the group stage and will increase to £95m for the quarter-finals, at which point all players will receive a Wildcard, where they can make unlimited changes to their team.

Big hitters

Nick Pope, Jordan Pickford, Hugo Lloris, Ederson and Alisson all top the goalkeeping charts at £7m, with Trent Alexander-Arnold, and Brazilian duo Marquinhos and Alex Sandro heading the defenders list at £7.5m.

The midfield is where things get interesting, with Neymar and Lionel Messi both down as midfielders, who'll pick up a point for keeping a clean sheet in games where they play at least 60 minutes, and score five points (compared to four for forwards) for scoring a goal, and both will be keen to top the scoring charts throughout the tournament. 

Neymar is the most expensive player in the game at £13m, with Messi at £12m. Germany's Kai Havertz is the third most expensive midfielder at £11m.

Unsurprisingly, France's Kylian Mbappe is the top-price forward at £12.5m, while 2018 Golden Boot winner Harry Kane is £12m.
