With Euro 2016 kicking off on June 10th, time's running out to pick your 15-man fantasy squad in UEFA EURO 2016 Fantasy.

The app should be simple enough for anyone who's ever dabbled with fantasy football apps in the past but, as always, it has its own quirks when it comes to the pricing of certain players.

So, if you're struggling to build a squad within that €100 million budget, here are a few tips for players who won't break the bank, but could just make a big impact at the tournament.


No way around this one: you'll need a solid choice for 'keeper, and this will cost money. The obvious choices - Lloris, Neuer, Courtois - are all solid choices at €6 million each.

De Gea's arguably the best bargain, though, at €5.5 million. And while you might be tempted by Petr Cech at the same price, it's worth remembering that his Czech Republic side lacks the defensive strength of France, Germany, Belgium or Spain.


Aside from the big names, young Everton centre back John Stones - sometimes sublime, sometimes a gangly mess - is worth the risk as a €4.5m substitute.

The solid Eric Dier is available for just a touch more at €5m, and Italy's Matteo Darmian at €5.5m.


In a hotly contested position full of costly players, midfield is a good area in which to be frugal. At €5.5m, N'golo Kante - a key player in Leicester City's Premier League triumph - is a steal.

Moussa Dembele and Axel Witsel - €6m and €6.5m respectively - both start regularly in a Belgium side that many consider favourites to win the tournament, and would also be solid choices.


It's unclear whether Leicester's Jamie Vardy can follow up his fairytale season with a strong showing at the Euros, but he may be worth a pop at €7m.

Italy's Lorenzo Insigne could be a decent off-the-bench pick for the same price, and Shane Long certainly has the potential to be good value for his €6.5m price-tag - although, given the competition in the Republic of Ireland's group, it may be stifled.
