World Cup of FPL – Group A

Fantasy Football Scout is delighted to announce that the World Cup of FPL has begun.

After a brutal and gruelling qualification round, the real tournament kicks off today with the first group stage clashes.

You can now vote in Group A below or using the sidebar of our website.

Earlier this week we asked you to nominate the players you believed deserved the chance to compete for the title of greatest FPL asset of all time.

We were faced with a deluge of players, which made the process of choosing just 32 to compete at the finals an incredibly difficult one.

After aggregating that large number of players based on your nominations, we were left with the following groups.

Group AGroup BGroup CGroup D
Branislav IvanovicCarlos TevezDidier DrogbaAndrew Robertson
Frank LampardGareth BaleGylfi SigurdssonCristiano Ronaldo
Patrice EvraSteven GerrardHarry KaneEden Hazard
Robin van PersieThierry HenryRomelu LukakuTrent Alexander-Arnold
Group EGroup FGroup GGroup H
Marcos AlonsoClint DempseyCesc FabregasAlexis Sánchez
Nemanja VidicGareth McAuleyJamie VardyMohamed Salah
Raheem SterlingJohn TerryKevin De BruynePetr Cech
Wayne RooneyLuis SuarezLeighton BainesSergio Aguero

That meant it was so close and yet so far for those who missed out on the tournament, which included Aleksandar Kolarov, Dimitar Berbatov, Christian Eriksen, Joe Hart, Raúl Jiménez, Joleon Lescott, John Lundstram, Riyad Mahrez, Florent Maloud, Michu, Morten-Gamst Pedersen, Yaya Touré and Patrick van Aanholt.

Today marks the opening of the first vote, which pits Branislav Ivanovic, Frank Lampard, Patrice Evra and Robin van Persie against each other.

All you need to do is vote for your two favourite options from this group and when the voting concludes, the top two will advance to the knockout rounds.

Let’s take a look at Group A’s competitors and make sure you cast your vote in the footer.

BRANISLAV IVANOVIC

Before wing-backs truly dominated the defensive department of the Fantasy scene as they do now, Branislav Ivanović was there to provide a bit of everything.

In a Chelsea defence that conceded fewer than 35 goals five times between 2008/09 and 2014/15, the Serbian international played an important role.

On top of a strong defensive foundation, Ivanović, capable of playing at right-back or in the middle of the defence, was capable of attacking returns with satisfying regularity.

2009/10 was his break-out season, as he scored once and assisted five times and he went to even better heights the following campaign with four goals and four assists.

2012/13 produced his first appearance in the end-of-season Dream Team as Chelsea kept 14 clean sheets and Ivanović, benefitting from 12 of those, added five goals and an assist.

2014/15 will be remembered as his most impressive season though, as his four goals and five assists, added to Chelsea’s 16 clean sheets secured a second Dream Team call-up in three years.

FRANK LAMPARD

No player in FPL history has been earned a place in the end-of-season Dream Team more times than Frank Lampard.

The Chelsea midfield achieved that feat a staggering seven times between 2002 and 2015.

Lampard was one of the original ‘essentials’ of FPL, and in this case, there is no argument that the all-hallowed E-word applied to him in his prime.

His ability to score goals and set them up with frightening regularity ensured that Lampard made the Dream Team for five years running between the 2002/03 season and 2006/07.

Again, no other player has strung five consecutive appearances together, with only two other assets finding a place in an end-of-season team that many times in their entire FPL career.

But it was the longevity of Lampard’s value to Fantasy managers that also props up his case here.

Even after dominating the midfield for the best part of the so-called ‘noughties’ decade, he was an important cog in our teams during the early years of the ‘teens’ too.

In the 2009/10 campaign, Lampard scored a staggering 22 goals and providing a further 14 assists and between 2010 and 2013, he continued to score at least 10 times per season.

Such credentials mean that Lampard is not only the favourite to win Group A, but he is also tipped as a hot contender to go the distance and win this World Cup too.

PATRICE EVRA

Patrice Evra was something of a slow-burner at the beginning of his FPL legacy but he went on to become an important part of teams at the turn of the decade.

Earning what you would describe as a regular starting berth on the left side of Manchester United’s defence in 2006/07, Evra came into his own in 2009/10 when he made the first of three Dream Team appearances.

2012/13 was the Frenchman’s most memorable. Having never been much of a goal-scorer until that point, Evra found the net four times and assisted another five goals, only Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie creating more for their colleagues that year. Throw 10 clean sheets into the mix and it was enough for Evra’s third Dream Team call-up in four seasons.

ROBIN VAN PERSIE

The aforementioned van Persie rounds off our Group A competitors having proved to be a crucial Fantasy asset at two different clubs.

The Dutch striker moved to Arsenal in 2004/05 and took some time to prove his worth with several injury problems holding him back.

It wasn’t until 2010 that van Persie really started to trouble the Fantasy radar as he ended the 2009/10 campaign with nine goals and seven assists.

2010/11 saw further improvement as he netted 18 goals and assisted seven more and it was 2011/12 that saw van Persie truly etch his name into the FPL halls of fame.

The ‘always captain van Persie season’ featured a 30-goal campaign from Arsenal’s star man and nine assists.

Switching clubs the following year hardly curtailed van Persie either, as he scored 26 times and assisted nine goals in his first campaign at Manchester United, earning himself back-to-back Dream Team appearances.

      I voted for RVP and Ivanovic as they i seem to remember having them in my team, more than Lamps.

      Lamps, part of the original holy trinity, gotta be.

      1. DOG GOD IT - KEANE 15

        This.

        CR7, Lamps and Stevie G.

  2. El Presidente
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Pretty easy actually, as follows:

      A - Lampard
      B- Henry
      C - Drogba
      D - Ronaldo
      E - Rooney
      F - Terry
      G - De Bruyne
      H - Aguero

      Absolutely no brainer.

        I agree with them all except group G - baines was the main man for fantasy in his day

        Not Terry for me.

        Based on 1 season, Suarez was superlatively exceptionally fantastically out of this world.

        Based on 2 seasons or more, i would go for Demps.

      Premier League statement. No football until at least April 30 and it will not return until it is safe to do so.

      The Premier League, EFL and PFA met today and discussed the growing seriousness of the COVID-19 pandemic.

        It definitely won't be 'safe' by April 30th. But even if it was safe by then, we wouldn't know it was safe because it takes weeks to know what affects our actions are taking.

        No football for a long time then.

      Salah (c) Mane Kdb Sarr (Cantwell)
      Jimenez Vardy Ings

      Lampard, Henry, Drogba, Ronaldo, Alonso, Suarez, Fabregas , Aguero.

      Damn...Why you put Capt America with Suarez. My best ever fpl asset.

      Anyway if Lampard or Henry don't win it's a fix. They won't though because the noobs haven't got a clue and didn't witness it

      Hi everyone - what's the best transfer strategy currently? Obviously make sense to use free transfers to improve our squads, but should we be looking at a particular gameweek to build towards or something else?

      No mention of Michu in the article? Surprised he isn't on the list tbh. Maybe not in the PL long enough but certainly sticks out as an FPL hero for me anyway!

      1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        There’s probably a whole ‘nother competition after this one for the “most memorable individual FPL seasons”

        Michu’s one season in the limelight
        CRon’s Big year
        Henry’s 49 returns in 37 games
        Salah’s 300 pointer
        Lamps getting 38 returns in 1 season
        Stevie G’s penultimate season with 28 G/A
        Suarez’s mental year
        RVP’s got an absolute better of a year in there
        Bale before he went to real scoring spurs hattricks for fun

        Those individual seasons often stick out & make the players seem like Gods

        Schmeichel
        Ivanovic Rio Kompany Cole
        Gerrard Keane Scholes Ronaldo
        Henry Shearer

        Terry, Vidic or Kompany is hard to pick from, but I think Kompany had fewer weaknesses in his game out of the 3. Suarez would be in this if Shearer hadn't done it for many years. Rest picks itself, for me anyway.

                  Actually think Ledley is overlooked. Maybe because he didn't have a full career or win anything but there is a reason he was touted as the best defender england never had... he didn't even train 😆

                  Drogba just dived too much. Think that always will be held against him but as far as the complete striker as it gets

                    Drogba spent 8 season in England:

                    09/10 - excellent (29G 13A in 32 games)

                    The other 7 seasons - reasonable (75G 50A in 222 games)

                      Was he a good hold up player?

                        On his day he was unplayable - but outside of 09/10 he wasn’t very prolific by elite striker standards

                          Cheers for the information mate.
                          Maybe the playing style of Chelsea was the reason 😮

                          If you are looking at stats then he isn't as elite but this aint FPL we talking about so you had to see him to understand. I don't even like chelsea one bit but i just think he was one of the best i have seen all round

                        Yeah saw him play for years - very frustrating player to watch - so much talent but outside of 09/10 he never really dominated as much as he could have

                        A player with that set of abilities should have been up with Henry, Kun, Shearer etc at the top of the pile, but Drogba seemed to struggle sometimes to maintain his performance/motivation levels over sustained periods

                        Again - outside of 09/10 where he was consistently fantastic for a season, Ancelotti managed to coax a great season out him that year for sure

        If they manage to get a complete 20/21 season out by doing this, I'd still be mad.
        I don't think there's any football happening over next few months though.

          I agree - an 8th August start for next season is very much at risk (pre-season starting in June) and for that reason I am struggling to envisage this season being completed at all.

        Probably

        The “indefinite extension” was quite a clever method of containing things in the short term - stops them from having to listen to 2 or 3 months of negative feedback then they go ahead and void it later via an announcement that begins with: “despite our best efforts, we unfortunately...”

        Re the first point it hasn't been ratified and most of the clubs affected are up in arms and organising protests ... FA probably thought they'd could handle the lower clubs without getting their asses sued

        It's not just the PL games, you have to consider. There's CL, Europa, FA Cup. Then there's all the playoffs for league 1, league 2 and the Championship. Even the playoff finals alone would need 3 weekends to complete.

        I just don't see it happening.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          I was assuming all of that would get cancelled out of hand and that the entire season would be started again from fresh ... but I can’t see a new season even starting with the existing clubs as started last season

        • 1 Year

        Additionally, you'd also need a minimum of a month from the playoff final date to allow time for clubs to agree sponsorship deals, arrange transfers, player breaks, etc before the start of the new season.

        If that gives them some respite & costing them few 100's of places it's a great deal mate.

      Hi Guys. I hope we are all keeping safe. I really miss playing FFS, and miss the banter and insightful comment. But far greater things to concern our self with at the moment. However I am convinced we will come out the other side stronger more considerate to other people's views and a much more understanding society. This crises has shown how important it is to have and rely on family but more importantly one another........stay safe and healthy.

        However there have been many occasions when we may have looked like humanity would turn a corner, but people have short memories.
