More Fantasy Premier League assets were involved in another day of international football on Monday.
The Copa America group stages came to a close while England Under 21s ended their involvement in the age-group Euros.
Meanwhile, there were some Fantasy talking points to emerge from the latest African Cup of Nations matches.
Chile 0-1 Uruguay
Alexis Sánchez was the only Premier League player to feature in an eventual clash between Chile and Uruguay.
The Manchester United man had a chance to put his country ahead inside the opening 10 minutes, as Chile made a bright start to the encounter.
However, Uruguay felt their way into the match and won the game to top Group C when Edinson Cavani struck in the 82nd minute.
That means we now know the line-up for the quarter-finals of the tournament.
Hosts Brazil will face Paraguay at 01:30 BST on Friday June 28.
Later that day, Venezuela and Argentina will contest the second quarter-final at 20:00 BST.
Colombia vs Chile takes place at 00:00 BST in the early hours of Saturday morning before Uruguay play Peru at 20:00 BST that day.
Ivory Coast 1-0 South Africa
Persistence paid off for Jonathan Kodjia as Ivory Coast, captained by Serge Aurier, edged past South Africa on Monday afternoon.
The Aston Villa striker scored the only goal of a pretty poor game but had already spurned two golden chances in the first half.
First, he was played through by Nicolas Pépé but failed to connect with the ball when swinging his shooting foot.
Later on, Kodjia had an even better opportunity as he found himself one-on-one with Ronwen Williams following a poor clearance but he could only fire it straight at the goalkeeper from close range.
In the end, the forward finally found the breakthrough when, played in by Max Gradel’s cross, he slotted under Williams from close range.
Curiously, despite being arguably their best player on paper, Wilfried Zaha continues to be used as an impact sub for Ivory Coast.
He added some threat down the left flank after he came on for Jean Michael Seri in the 69th minute.
He could start the next match for Ivory Coast though, against Morocco on Friday.
Winger Gradel had to come off with an injury in the 89th minute, and Zaha would be a perfect like-for-like replacement for the former Bournemouth man.
Mali 4-1 Mauritania
Southampton’s new signing Moussa Djenepo was the only Premier League representative as Mali dispatched Mauritania 4-1.
As referenced in our Scout Report earlier this month, he was stationed on the left flank of a 4-2-3-1 as an inverted winger.
Djenepo was a lively option down that side of the pitch and had several opportunities in the first half but could not find the back of the net.
He did display something of a temper in the game, picking up a yellow card for a late tackle in the first half.
In fact, he was lucky not to get another booking for a similar challenge later in the match and was substituted on the hour mark.
Djenepo did appear a little too easy to wind up but seemed more frustrated by his own actions than those around him.
When failing to convert his chances, he was visibly angry not to have scored.
It will be interesting to see if that temper comes with him to the Premier League in 2019/20.
UEFA U21s Championship
Croatia U21s 3-3 England U21s
It was the same story for England Under 21s in their final match at the age-group Euros tournament.
Their attack showed decent form, this time featuring a return to the starting line-up for Phil Foden and Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham.
Leicester’s James Maddison started for the third match in a row and got his first goal of the tournament, after assisting Foden in the opener.
Arsenal’s Reiss Nelson also came into the side and scored an 11th-minute penalty.
However, the usual problem for Aidy Boothroyd’s side was in defence.
After a poor game in the opening match of the tournament, there was no return for Crystal Palace’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka, with Jonjoe Kenny playing at right-back for the second game in a row.
The Everton man, set for a loan at Schalke in 2019/20, scored an excellent goal but was at fault for Croatia’s first of the encounter.
