Well, that was fun, wasn’t it?

We’ve reached the promise land of the World Cup, with 32 teams snipped down to 16 for the second-round.

This is where the tournament gets real serious, folks.

But while we’re gearing up for the round of 16, we’ve been thinking about the best fantasy football players you could’ve had on Dream Team’s World Cup game for the group stages.

Drum roll please…

David De Gea? Allisson? That old Egyptian fella?

We spent longer than we’d care to admit trying to decide who to have between the sticks for our Dream Team World Cup line-up.

For those of you who opted for Denmark’s Kasper Schmeichel, we salute you with the same passion Diego Maradona saluted the Nigerians.

Leicester’s shot-stopper has picked up a haul of 24 points so far, largely thanks to his save-after-save heroics in their first match of the tournament against Peru.

DEFENCE

Best points-scoring defender on the game so far?

It’s not Diego Godin, Thiago Silva or even John Stones, but Sweden’s Andreas Granqvist.

The Swedish captain scored twice in Group F – both from the penalty spot – and even won two Star Man awards.

Joining him in the back-line is Colombia’s Yerry Mina, who’s been great so far but will ultimately go home disappointed when Harry Kane slots four past his team on Tuesday.

In the full-back positions are Brazil’s brilliantly-named Fagner and Swedish eighth-month of the year Ludwig Augustinsson.

MIDFIELD

Seeing Philippe Coutinho and Isco in our midfield three is about as surprising as D.F.S. having a sale on.

The pair have been instrumental to their respective team’s progression at the World Cup, with Coutinho notching two goals and an assist so far, while Isco has a single goal to his name but has undoubtedly been Spain’s standout player.

Joining them is the surprise face of Tunisia’s Wahbi Khazri – who’s actually still on the books of League One bottlers Sunderland – thanks to his outstanding performances against Belgium and Panama.

Well done to the 0.2% of you who picked him.

There’s no surprises or arguments from us over who makes the front-three.

The trio of Harry Kane, Romelu Lukaku and Cristiano Ronaldo have scored 13 goals between them and will likely be fighting it out for the Golden Boot by the end of the tournament.

If you haven’t got any of them in your Dream Team, then you’re doing it wrong.

Very wrong.
