    CFs- Alexis, Mertens, Icardi, Sturridge
    WFs- Alexis, Mertens, Benardeschi, Joao Mario
    CM/DMs- Pogba, Nainggolan, Xhaka, Joao Mario, Jorginho, Florenzi
    FB/SM/WBs- Baines, Florenzi, Bernardeschi, Joao Mario, Monreal, Blind
    CBs- Blind, Godin, Manolas, Monreal

    I could use up to 5 formations, plenty of combinations and basically cover every situation.

    Should've been wiser with the Monreal thing but I was in a hurry, drunk and messed up to think properly. Can I change?

    picks are locked once someone else has picked after you. you could offer him for transfer if we do that, but it needs a couple more votes before that will happen

    FC not picked

    Didn't pick a keeper because Andrei did not pick his keeper yet.

    How can Porto and Benfica alone produce better players than the entire USA? So depressing.

    Well over the last 5 years or so, both Porto and Benfica have had a surge of young talents which is something that usually happens to Sporting. The level of some of these kids has been so good that it's basically impossible for coaches to not give them a shot in the first team. Portugal's latest youth teams have been hugely promising and I really believe we are set for the next decade, at least.

    Dalot is only 18 but is already regarded as a future star given the quality he's been showing for both Porto and Portugal's youth teams. He's yet to make his debut for Porto's first team but believe he's ready to go and I hope he gets his chance...trust me, you don't see many fullbacks playing with such "authority" all over the pitch these days.

    BTW I also believe Rúben Neves will finally get the minutes he deserves. Last season he didn't play as much as he should because Danilo was a beast all season long. Big offers for Danilo though, so this might just be Rúben's moment.
    He was simply outstanding for the U21s this tournament and I hope he extends that form into his Porto season. One of my favorites for sure, fantastic player...

    Porto and Benfica has great academies with very good coaches as well. Specially Porto, one of best in the Europe (they obviously lack the attracting power).

    Just curious if the likes of Alex Teixeira, Hulk, Oscar would have been picked if they were still playing in Europe and not in the Chinese Super League.

    Yes I understand that, but every US kid with any potential finds his way to the u17 residency program, which is like Clairfontaine I guess. In theory they should get the best coaches in the country there. But in a nation of 300 million, we can't even produce as much talent as the city of Porto. Don't even mention Lisbon.

    Gylfi Sigurdsson is a bigger omission than those two.

    Playing in the Champions League? I'd yes for Oscar, and probably even Hulk.

    I cant find explanation to that, in Spain happens than in formative football the best players are in Catalonia and Valencia.

    Did Gotze get picked? I definitely think he and Oscar would make for good bench players, if I hadnt seleceted my attackers early I would have taken them.
