How does World Cup fantasy football work?

If you’re already a Dream Team fan you’ll recognise the setup.

The game is completely free to enter and will run from the opening game on June 14 right up until when England inevitably lift the trophy in the final on July 15.

Because that’s definitely what’s going to happen, right?

You will be given 20 transfers at the start of the tournament to use across the duration, with a maximum of three transfers per match day.

Our expert friends over at WhoScored – as they have for the Season and Weekender games – will provide all the statistics that generate the points scoring.

How many teams can I enter and what can I win?

Each manager can enter a maximum of 10 teams while there is no option to buy more teams.

One extremely exciting new feature is the expansion beyond a UK audience, with fantasy football fans worldwide now able to enter.

Only UK players will be eligible to win the tasty £175,000 prizepot, with £100,000 going to the winner and the rest divided between the next nine highest scores.

When can I enter?

The last few details are being finalised by the Dream Team World Cup game officially launches on June 1.

If you are an existing Dream Team player you will be able to register before that, with the World Cup game appearing on the Dream Team app next to Season and Weekender.

What new features are there?

Aside from the introduction of non-UK players, we’ve also got a snazzy new formation to try out.

As well as the traditional 4-4-2 and 4-3-3, Dream Team World Cup will also see 3-4-3 become an option to maximise more attacking players.

Which players will I be able to pick? Ronaldo will be hoping to replicate Portugal’s Euro 2016 successAFP or licensors

Yep, all your favourites are in there.

Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Jordan Henderson… you name them, they’re all included.

Every manager will have a budget of £50m to spend which means they’ll need an eye for a bargain to accommodate all the big boys.

And we’ve just revealed that Messi – not Ronaldo – will be the most expensive player on the game at £8m.

Will Rodriguez shine again? Who were the best players at the last World Cup?

Remember last time? Germany were great, James Rodriguez was brilliant and England were… let’s not go there.

Brazil hosted a sublime tournament in 2014, jam-packed with entertainment right up until Mario Gotze’s brilliant extra time winner against Argentina in the final.

Colombian hero Rodriguez won the Golden Boot, but who else took the competition by storm?

Here are the top 10 points scorers from the last Dream Team World Cup.

Have you picked a witty and original team name yet? Vintage

Because ultimately what’s the point without one?

‘Barry’s Boys’ just doesn’t cut it anymore, so thinking outside the box is crucial to avoid ridicule in your mini-league.

Tika Mo Salah, When Harry Met Alli… we’ve seen some crackers already but there’s plenty of room for improvement.

Luckily for you lot we’ve provided an extensive guide of all the best we’ve seen so far.

England are winning it, aren’t they? Welbeck over Ronaldo any dayPA:Empics Sport

Of course they are.

Germany might be reigning champions, Spain might have eight world class midfielders and Argentina might have a man called Messi, but it’s time to end the 50-years of hurt.

England have some exciting young players capable of hurting anyone on their day.

And, although we wouldn’t recommend it, you can actually submit a Dream Team consisting entirely of England players if you really fancied it.

Bring back the trophy, lads.
