This week’s player reinforcements
We are working on reinforcements for the next season.
Our target is players from Salzburg, who have a reputation for developing young players.
Salzburg is a club team famous for producing a number of star players, such as Erling Haaland of Dortmund, Sadio Mane, Nabi Keita, and Takumi Minamino of Liverpool, Dayo Upamecano of Bayern, and Patson Daka of Leicester City.
The average age of the players in the team is young, and there are many players who have the potential to move to big or mid-sized clubs. Therefore, we are planning to reinforce the team mainly with Salzburg players.
I quit buying Adeyemi, Okafor, etc., who are currently playing in the league and other tournaments, because they are already in the starting lineup and their card prices are skyrocketing.
So, I’m targeting the players who are warming the bench as subs.
I’m sure that once the players who are currently playing in the starting lineup move on, the next big thing will be the subs. This is a strategy to buy those players at a low price while they are still available.
Whether this strategy is a good thing or a bad thing, I think we will see the results in a year or two.
Let’s just wait and see!
Let’s take a look at the players we have added.
DF: Kilian Ludewig (Salzburg)
Kilian Ludewig is a 21-year-old German who plays for Salzburg.
He has only played one game in the league this season, but I believe he will be able to make a difference next season.
He is priced at 0.03 ETH, and I hope his price will skyrocket in the future.
MF: Luka Sucic (Salzburg)
Luka Sucic is a Croatian who plays for Salzburg.
He is only 18 years old, but he has played 12 league games this season, and he is already playing for the Croatian national team.
The price was 0.222 ETH, a bit high for a player who is already active, but I reinforced it because of his potential.
GK: Nico Mantl (Salzburg)
Niko Mantl is a 21-year-old German who plays for Salzburg.
As Salzburg’s second keeper, he is a goalkeeper who often warms the bench, but once regular goalkeeper Philip Kane moves on, he is sure to be a starter.
He is priced at 0.173 ETH, so let’s hope his price will skyrocket in the future.
That’s it for the reinforcements.
Back to the topic at hand, let’s take a look at the players who will be participating in Sorare WEEK #218.
Sorare WEEK #218 Rare Card Players
This week is the national team week, with the Qatar World Cup qualifiers taking place in various countries.
All Star D4 Players
- GK: Gianluigi Donnarumma (Italy)
- DF: Fabio Santos (Corinthians)
- MF: Nicolò Barella (Italy)
- FW: Roger Guedes (Corinthians)
- Free: Karim Benzema (France) *Captain
These are the five players who will be participating in the Sorare WEEK #218 All-Star D4.
GK: Gianluigi Donnarumma (Italy)
I chose Gianluigi Donnarumma of the Italian national team as my goalkeeper.
The other options were Sinan Bolat of Turkey and Mark Flekken of the Netherlands, but I chose Donnarumma because he had the highest probability of being a starter.
It’s a common card, but I think it’s the right choice because he has to be able to play as a starter.
We will be matched up against the Swiss national team, and I hope we can achieve a clean sheet.
DF: Fabio Santos (Corinthians)
My choice for defense is Fabio Santos of Corinthians, who will face 11th-ranked Cuiaba in the Brazilian league.
I could have chosen Dayo Upamekano from the French national team, but I chose Fabio Santos because he doesn’t have much chance to start for the national team.
After all, it is important to choose a player who is likely to be a starter.
MF: Nicolò Barella (Italy)
I chose the Italian national team’s Nicolò Barella as my midfielder.
I could have chosen Portugal’s Rafa Silva or Croatia’s Luka Sucic, but Nicolò Barella is the one who is most likely to start.
Like Donnarumma, he will be matched up against the Swiss national team! Let’s hope he does well.
FW: Roger Guedes (Corinthians)
As a forward, I chose Roger Guedes of Corinthians, who will face 11th-ranked Cuiaba in the Brazilian league.
Here’s hoping he scores against Cuiaba!
Free: Karim Benzema (France) *Captain
Karim Benzema is the last free agent I chose.
I hope he can score against Kazakhstan, the lowest ranked team in the World Cup Final Qualifiers!
Elected as captain with high hopes! Good luck, Benzema!
These are the players who will be participating in the All-Star D4.
I’m hoping for 0.02 ETH again this time!
Sorare WEEK #218 Limited Card Players
All Star D5 Players
- GK: Justin Bijlow (Netherlands)
- DF: Vertonghen (Belgium)
- MF: Yuori Thielemans (Belgium), Captain
- FW: Thasos Douvikas (Greece)
- Free: Salemarkers (Belgium)
These are the five players who will be participating in Sorare WEEK #218 – All-Star D5.
Goalkeeper: Justin Bijlow (Netherlands)
I chose Justin Bijlow of the Netherlands as my goalkeeper.
The team they will face in the final qualifying round of the World Cup is Montenegro, ranked 4th.
It’s an away game, but I hope they manage to keep a clean sheet.
DF: Vertonghen (Belgium)
My choice for defense is Vertonghen from the Belgium national team.
There was another option to choose Julien Timber from the Netherlands, but I chose Vertonghen this time because he rarely plays in the starting lineup for the Netherlands.
In the final qualifying round of the World Cup, we will be playing at home against Estonia, who is ranked fourth.
I really hope we can keep them scoreless!
MF: Yuori Tielemans (Belgium), captain
I chose Yuori Tielemans of the Belgium national team as my midfielder.
There was another option to choose Brendan Aaronson of the U.S. national team, but I chose Thielemans this time because he rarely starts games for the U.S. national team.
I hope he and Vertonghen can lead the Belgians to victory!
FW: Thasos Douvikas (Greece)
I chose Greece’s Tassos Douvikas as my forward.
The other choice was Kerim Mrabti of Sweden, but I think Douvikas has a better chance of playing.
Let’s just hope he gets to play in the starting lineup first!
Free: Salemakers (Belgium)
The Belgian national team’s Salemarkers was selected for the free agent slot.
He hasn’t had a lot of opportunities to play in the league, but I hope he’ll do well in the national team.
First of all, let’s hope they get to play in the starting lineup!
For All-Star D5, I’m looking forward to the Belgian trio.
That’s it for the players participating in Sorare WEEK 218!
Let’s get excited for the national team games this weekend!
See you soon!
Results of Sorare WEEK #218
All-Star D4 results
- GK: Gianluigi Donnarumma (Italy)：19.9
- DF: Fabio Santos (Corinthians)：0
- MF: Nicolò Barella (Italy)：31.1
- FW: Roger Guedes (Corinthians)：88.1
- Free: Karim Benzema (France) *Captain：97.8
Result: 872nd place out of 6979 players
Total score 236, earning 0.01 ETH.
I managed to record a score of over 200 and got the minimum 0.01 ETH.
After all, national team week is hard to predict…
I didn’t expect the French center back, Varane, to withdraw from the national team…. Furthermore, Kimbempe also left the team due to injury. Because of this, Upamecano will be starting. It was a frustrating week for me because I could have scored over 250 if I had checked properly and used Upamecano as my starter.
All-Star D5 Results
- GK: Justin Bijlow (Netherlands)：44.4
- DF: Vertonghen (Belgium)：83.6
- MF: Yuori Thielemans (Belgium), Captain：0
- FW: Thasos Douvikas (Greece)：44.4
- Free: Salemarkers (Belgium)：34.2
Result: 1260th place out of 9365 players
Well…this one is out of the question….
Thielemans’ absence was unexpected.
Representative week is hard to predict….
I’ll do my best next time!
See you next time!
