So…stick or twist? That’s the quandary facing Fantasy owners of Robert Lewandowski in the McDonald’s game after the Polish forward grabbed a goal and 12 point captaincy return in this evening’s 1-1 draw with Greece.
The Borussia Dortmund man was quick out the blocks, grabbing the opener after just 17 minutes and vindicating the 44% who voted him top of our Matchday 1 Captain Poll. Nodding home a cross from Jakub Blaszczykowski, Lewandowski looked primed to notch more after Greece were reduced to 10 men but the co-hosts failed to make their advantage pay before Wojciech Szczesny’s dismissal made the numbers even.
With Holland squaring up to Denmark tomorrow and Germany facing Portugal, there are plenty of options to consider. We rolled out the Captain Poll for Matchday 2 just after 5pm and already Robin Van Persie is an overwhelming favourite for tomorrow’s matches, acquiring 69% of the votes cast so far. Wesley Sneijder, Ibrahim Afellay and Arjen Robben also look in strong form heading into Saturday’s early kick-off, with Sneijder just sneaking into second place.
Later tomorrow evening, Germany’s clash with Portugal affords plenty of options, too. Mesut Ozil, Thomas Muller and Lucas Podolski all look certain starters for Joachim Low’s side, while uncertainty still remains over who will lead the line – Miroslav Klose or Mario Gomez? Cristiano Ronaldo is also likely to pick up some support prior to tomorrow’s deadline in the McDonald’s game but one thing’s for sure – if it’s filled with half the incident of this afternoon’s encounter, we’re in for an entertaining day.
