Euro 2024

Euro 2024 Fantasy: All 24 nations’ penalty and set-piece takers

We’ve put together a comprehensive list of potential set-piece and penalty takers ahead of the start of Euro 2024 Fantasy.

Not just that, there are notes on all 24 nations to explain why certain names appear on the list.

To do this, we’ve been drawing on the set-piece data from European Championship qualification and the subsequent friendlies, which can be found in the Premium Members Area.

The correspondents who were contributing to our team previews have also offered their thoughts on who is on dead-ball duties.

These are only educated guesses, of course – the managers might have different ideas come the big kick-off.

SET PIECE TAKERS

The players are listed in order of potential prominence at dead-ball situations. For example, Harry Kane (€11.0m) is England’s first-choice penalty taker and Christian Eriksen (€7.0m) is first in line for corners with Denmark.

    Anybody having a go at Sun Dreamteam?

    Chip strategy going to be massive. What’s your plan?

      Loaded up on goalscorers and playing the 10pt goal chip. Captaincy on 0.1% owned player for a laugh. If my team is bin after round 1 then I'll just give up - it's one fantasy game too far tbh but the prize money is too enticing.

      I'll probably save the 12th man chip for the knockout stages when pricing makes it harder to put a team together.

      Goal bonus I'll use in MD 1 I think as fixtures look most favourable for the seeded teams

      I might use the max captain in MD 3 in case we get benchings for key players whose teams have already qualified, making it harder to predict who to captain

        Oh.. How do I thank you??

    Feels wrong not to have any Belgian attacker, but I am not confident enough in Lukaku over Kane, Mbappé or CR7, nor I am confident in Trossard over Bruno. Tough one.

    1. chilli con kone
      • 11 Years

      I’m looking at Lukaku ahead of Kane with the savings invested

    2. CONNERS
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      I went Lukaku over Kane.

      Top scorer in qualifying with 14 goals. Kane only managed 8 and 4 of those were pens.

    3. FPL Blow-In
      • 11 Years

      Gone Trossard and Bruno

      I told you before without Belgium now yout trying to justify lol

      Most will omit kane. Guy is fatigued

        Yeah mate, took your advice

        1. azz007

          I went lukaku and saka for England cover.

    A. Ronaldo, Bellingham, chakvetadze
    B. Kane, Wertz, Jorginho +0.5m

    1. Revival

      Definitely B for me

  4. Moxon

    1 month, 9 days ago

    How would you rank the below?

    A. Hernandez
    B. Di Lorenzo
    C. Dumfries

    Would you consider any other 5.5m options?

    1. Jonesfromthere
      • 12 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      A or C, I’ve gone c

    I think ffs is missing an opportunity here.
    Let’s be honest nobody, really cares about Euro fantasy (right? Right?!) so not sure people will see premium members only articles and think I better pay for a membership.
    These articles would have been better used as advert to showcase level of insight and depth of information to those who are not sure whether they should pay for premium account for the next season or not?

      This

        Their main market is EPL.

    2. Scratch

      Was thinking the same thing, a set-piece taker list is a bare minimum tool you'd expect from a Fantasy Football website. The fact that this one is pay-walled is a good way to drive people towards / Reddit / Twitter where it's free to access

    3. Ginkapo FPL
      • 12 Years

      Look at the years the people still here have been part of the site. We already know what a premium article is, they arent missing anything.

  6. chilli con kone

    Does anyone know if Trent is ahead of Trippier for Eng set pieces if both on the pitch?

    1. Scalper
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Obv Trent is set piece king

        The article trying to tell you things, without teliing you things lol.

        Still sitting with .5 ITB and debating between Calhanoglu(Good opponent) or Eriksen(Sneaky differential). Thoughts?

        1. Scratch
          • 14 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Like both options but going with Calhanoglu because Georgia should be the weakest team in the entire thing, finished 4th of 5 teams behind Scotland and Norway in qualifying and only qualified here through the nations league nonsense.

      5. BOATIES FC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        How nailed are jorginho and Scammaca ?

      6. Count of Monte Hristo
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Is Canceló worth 6.0 in the game? How attacking is he?

        1. St Pauli Walnuts
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          I think so. He's very attacking in an attacking side, has a favourable group (with CS chance) and gets lots of ball recoveries.

      7. Count of Monte Hristo
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Best two keepers for MD1?

        1. Disco Stu
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 12 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Don't really need two in this game. Just pick one good one(Pickford, Costa, Verbruggen) and a second one at 4.0(Moldovan) or 4.5(Lunin)

          1. Count of Monte Hristo
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 9 days ago

            Thanks. Who do you think has better CS potential between Costa, Pickford and Verbruggen?

            1. Disco Stu
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 12 Years
              1 month, 9 days ago

              I've gone Costa but it's a risk as he plays on the last day, and there's no chance to sub him out which might make Pickford a better choice

              1. Count of Monte Hristo
                • 11 Years
                1 month, 9 days ago

                Yeah not ideal waiting for the last day for a potential 2 potential.

                1. Scratch
                  • 14 Years
                  1 month, 9 days ago

                  Better to have your "stronger" keeper playing second

              2. GreennRed
                • 12 Years
                1 month, 9 days ago

                Pickford will be playing behind an unsettled defence. I think he'll concede at least one.

          2. St Pauli Walnuts
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            I think this is the only format you do, if one blanks you get a 2nd chance. Fodder isn't for this format. Moldovan not nailed. Lunin good shout.

        2. GreennRed
          • 12 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Going with Verbruggen and Costa.

          1. BUZZBOMB

            Yip.Ditto.

      8. DV8R
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 13 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        I need a 7.0m midfielder or less, currently on Barella but not sure who else to consider. Likely not using a chip in MD2.

        My midfield is currently: Bruno, Wirtz, Szoboszlai, Calhanoglu, 7.0m

        1. No Kane No Gain
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Xavi Simons??

        2. Disco Stu
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 12 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Eriksen?

          1. DV8R
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 13 Years
            1 month, 9 days ago

            Yeah I like this option

        3. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Shaqiri?

        4. Roshen
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Simons for me

        5. GreennRed
          • 12 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Kvaratskhelia.

          Wirtz doesn't nearly do as well for Germany as for Leverkusen.

          1. St Pauli Walnuts
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            Don't like his 2nd fixture, or yes he'd be my pick.

      9. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Haven't figured out my chip strategy yet, but here's what I've got so far:

        Verbruggen
        Hernandez, Dimarco, Mittelstadt (C), Faes
        KDB, Szoboszlai, Shaqiri, Jorginho
        Mbappe, Lukaku

        Moldovan, CR7, Bruno, Cancelo

        Any glaring issues? TIA

        I fancy a Turkish player…

        Guler or Calhanoglu?!

        I don’t know much about either though!

        1. el polako
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Guler absolutely bossed the game when he came on in the last game against Poland.

        2. GreennRed
          • 12 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Calhanoglu, though he's a defensive mid. Guler's only 19, his gametime's being managed.

        1. FPL Blow-In
          • 11 Years

          Should be Gunok

          1. FPL Blow-In
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 9 days ago

            I think anyway, he started the last friendly

          2. azz007
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 9 days ago

            Any chance of a Cs. Gerogia are the worst in the tournament

        2. BUZZBOMB

              1 month, 9 days ago

              Do you actually know what spamming is? That was a joke ffs.

              1. St Pauli Walnuts

                • 5 Years

                I took it as more meat based jest.

        After doing some rearranging, suddenly find myself with 2.5 ITB. Where to spend it and who to upgrade?

        Verbruggen/Moldovan

        Theo/VVD/Dimarco/Faes/Mittlestadt

        Guler/Bruno/Jorginho/Wirtz/Soboszlai

        CR7/Lukaku/Mbappe

        1. Men in green tights
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Obvious two are Mold and Faes if you feel the need go for someone like Dumfries as an example but judging by your comment you are settled with the current team .

        2. Roshen
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Jorginho could be not on pens, so I would upgrade him first

          1. Disco Stu
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 12 Years
            1 month, 9 days ago

            Upgraded Jorge to Eriksen and Faes to Meunier

            1. Remi
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 9 days ago

              Meunier is injured and might not be playing at Euro
