New Fantasy features
You may have noticed some additional features to the FIFA World Cup Fantasy. You can now view all Club members' avatars and also click on a manager's username to visit their Club Page. To see a manager's team selection for the previous matchday, just click on their team name or matchday score. Clicking on a manager's total score will provide you with tables and graphs on their overall performance.
There is also a new Fantasy statistics section (located next to the 'fixtures' tab). The section ranks the best-performing players across various positions, and includes useful figures such as minutes played, goals scored, player cost and points tally.
