The World Cup has begun. The passion, the drama, the excitement... it’s all here. But if you’re having withdrawal symptoms during those gaps when a match isn’t being played, have no fear: Actozsoft have you covered.
This is because the developers of this game have updated their free-to-play footy management title One For Eleven with a new mode entitled World Nations Cup.
It’s basically a chance for real-world players - such as you (yes, you!) - to become national team managers on the big online stage.
The lucky bosses for all teams participating were chosen last week, and rounds of 256, 128, and 64 have taken place since.
Actozsoft are keen to share information about how the competition is going, with the line-up for the round of 32 visible below. Remember, all of the information below is based on participation from real-world players.
We spoke to Actozsoft about their take on events so far, and they believe that Japan and Panama are expected to advance from Group A.
France is expected to advance from Group B, while Vietnam is expected to make it through Group C. Bosnia and Herzegovina, meanwhile, is expected to top Group D. The Netherlands is expected to top Group E. Australia, Tunisia, and Belgium are expected to come out on top in their respective groups.
In the final 32, Group A is considered the most deadly. Japan and Panama both have the highest attacking ability, as well as high-ranking goalkeepers. Based on the above information, Actozsoft believe that the overall winner of the inaugural World Nations Cup competition will be the Netherlands, with France and Belgium likely to finish a close second and third.
You can download One For Eleven from the App Store [download] or Google Play [download] and prepare yourself for Season 2 of the World Nations Cup, which kicks off next week. Don't forget to visit the One For Eleven website or the game's Facebook page for more details.
