I’ve just had an hour on the Metro site looking at their new World Cup Fantasy Football game. It’s great for hardcore footy fans and anyone who just wants to play around during the biggest sporting event on the planet. Let me explain how it works and then you can have a go.
First you pick a formation (4-3-3 etc) and then you select 15 squad players using your £100m budget. Pay attention to the instructions as you must choose a certain number of players from different positions.
Once you’ve done that you can follow the stats, leaderboard and live scoring as the tournament progresses.
You can even transfer players, take part in mini leagues and tournaments, and try your hand at some predictions.
I spent my £100m fairly quickly and even threw in Harry Kewell just for a laugh.
Now I’ll sit back and watch my team of World Cup All Stars sweep everything before them – or despair as they put in a series of disappointing performances. That’s the thing about the World Cup. You never know what you’ll end up with.
Try it out for yourself at http://fantasyfootball.metro.co.uk/worldcup/ now. Good luck!
