We put forth a few underrated and interesting bargain options for your Fantasy Team ahead of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

The World Cup is the most watched sporting event in the world and billions are gambled on the outcome of results every four years. There are many different betting options available such as the tonybet bonus code and fantasy league competitions. If you are going to be creating your own team for the competition, finding a hidden gem is a way to rocket to the top. In this article, we will talk about the potential stars of this summer’s tournament held in Russia – ones that you should consider adding to your fantasy team.

During the last World Cup held in Brazil, James Rodríguez shot to stardom. Before the tournament kicked off, a fair share had not heard about the player that was playing at Monaco at the time. His career had stalled a bit at Real Madrid afterwards but if you had him on your fantasy team he would have scored you a huge total. Below are similar players that could have the same impact and give you a great chance of winning your fantasy league competition.

Hirving Lozano

Lozano plays for Mexico and if you are looking for an outside bet to win the golden boot this summer, he is definitely worth a punt. He has been outstanding in this campaign playing for PSV Eindhoven. The pacy forward scored 17 goals and 8 assists in the league in 29 appearances.

With the transfer window open, a great World Cup will not only boost his reputation and value, but also the interest in him.

Sardar Azmoun

Azmoun plays for Iran and many people will not know about players from this region. He is the best player in the team and has an eye for a fantastic pass. He has been linked with both Arsenal and Liverpool, which shows how highly is rated to those in the know.

Hailed as the Iranian Messi, the forward has had an average season for Rubin Kazan but will be looking to burst onto the stage in Russia. With the player already accustomed to the weather and pitch conditions, expect Azmoun to be one of the faces to watch out, especially if Iran are to make it out of the groups.

Lucas Torreira

Torreira plays for Uruguay who has an excellent chance of going all the way with Suarez playing up front. He has been outstanding at Sampdoria and will be in charge of all the team free kicks thanks to his amazing accuracy.

The holding midfielder will be entrusted to sniff out attacks while building Uruguay’s own. The spotlight may not be on Torreira but with Liverpool keeping a keen eye on the player, the midfielder will be keen on putting on a display.

Kasper Dolberg

Dolberg plays for Denmark – a side that features Tottenham Hotspur star Christian Eriksen, which could be key to him getting the goals. He is a deadly finisher who has been compared with Dennis Bergkamp. If he gets the chances, this ice cold star in the making will get the goals, so he could be a great player to include in your fantasy team.

Linked with Barcelona, Dolberg has had a decent domestic season but would need a brilliant World Cup in order to help make up Barcelona’s mind. One thing is for sure, he will not be short on chances, with Denmark boasting a creative unit behind the striker.

Denis Zakaria

Zakaria plays for Switzerland and when he is on form he can dominate games on his own. His debut campaign at Borussia Monchengladbach may not have gone according to expectations but he has a chance to redeem himself at the World Cup. He is a player in the same mould as Patrick Vieira and could play a vital role for his team.

Gonçalo Guedes

Guedes plays for Portugal and has the potential to be one of the stars of the 2018 World Cup. The on-loan PSG star, along with Hirving Lozano, are two of the most talked about stars on the list. Linked to an array of clubs for the summer, including Real Madrid, Guedes should give the suitors extra incentive to pursue his signature.

He has been managing to keep Renato Sanches out of the team and has already shown just how good he is. The pacy skilled winger has been fantastic for Valencia this season and if he has a good competition, there will be a lot of teams fighting for his signature this summer.


The likes of Guedes, Dolberg, Azmoun and Lozano should rack up the points for your fantasy team with goals and assists. If you have spent your whole fantasy league budget on the likes of Messi, Ronaldo and Neymar, these players above could be an excellent choice. They are cheap but have the quality to become stars if they have a great World Cup event in Russia.
