Each user may select a squad of up to 23 players. Bear in mind that there is a limit to picking a maximum of three players from each individual nation, in other words; only three players can be selected from Brazil, Italy, France…and so on.

Fantasy game is divided into five parts: the Group Stage games, Round of 16, quarter-finals, semi-finals and the Final.

* Group stage - 9 June to 23 June
* Round of 16 - 24 June to 27 June
* Quarter-finals - 30 June to 1 July
* Semi-finals - 4 July to 5 July
* Final - 9 July

The better your players perform on the pitch in Germany, the more points you attain. Points will be awarded for: goals scored, assists, saves, penalty saves and tackles. But points will be lost for missed penalties, bookings and goals conceded. The aim is to accumulate as many points as possible until the final whistle is blown on 9 July. The name of the overall winner will be revealed on the night of the Final itself.

Wow this one is going to be a little tuff, and fun. Picking your own 23 man squad I thought was going to be a peice of cake until I figured out that there are hundreds of players and I only know about 40 of them :-)

Well, I've certainly learned 1 thing while trying to join this pool.

I'm not that familiar with the players from the other countries. :lol:

I'm done... the 23 man roster is set, and my starters aer selected.

My one question is game play.

I understand the points system. But with the starters are they bye week, bye day by match????

Basically can you start a line usinhg players that play Friday, then start another line up with polayers playing Saturday then another line with players on Sunday? You could essentially draft a team that has players alternating each day so you always have players playing?

Any help on this rule would be great.

Looks like you went with the advice on the ESPN boards, a pretty good team Dynasty.

That's lame you can see my line up before it starts? So you can basically pick my team if you wanted. Hopefully everyone will challenge them self. The top 5-8 players in the world are easy. It's those final 5-8 that are tuff (especially with the 3 player limit per team).

All in all I'm happy with the squad I have. I would have liked to grab a couple of my fan favorites (Like Michael Owen and Miroslav Klause) but I couldn't justify adding them and cutting others.

Plus I got some young guns in there too.

It is pretty stupid, but I already had my team mapped out anyway. I agree, everybody will have Henry, Ronaldinho, etc., the lessers will be the determining factor.
