also look to get on the ball
Paul Merson and Phil Thompson go head-to-head in the second round of their Euro 2016 Sky Sports Fantasy Six-a-Side challenge as they look to land £1,000 for their charity of choice. NFL Jerseys Cheap Authentic . Merse edged their opening clash by literally the narrowest of margins as he scored 252.5 points to Thommos 252, putting him 1-0 up in their best-of-seven battle.Fantasy Football Clubs Merse has nominated Children with Cancer while Thommo, who won the Fantasy Six-a-Side Premier League pundit competition, is looking to raise money for Nugent Care.Up next is the crucial clash between England and Wales, with Gareth Bale, Aaron Ramsey, Wayne Rooney and Harry Kane the Elite Players. Pick your VI Which Elite Player makes your line-up? Pick your team for the chance to win the £5k jackpot. Heres who the Soccer Saturday pundits are selecting...Merses teamWayne Rooney (Elite Player)Hes playing a bit deeper now so he will see a lot of the ball. Hell touch the ball near enough a 100 times. He was outstanding against Russia, and I can see him being as influential against Wales.Chris SmallingAlthough he may not score bundles, Smalling is always liable to get a goal from a set-piece. Wales are not the biggest team in the world, so set plays could be a fruitful area for England if they get Harry Kane off the free-kicks and corners. And Smalling could be the one to profit.Ashley WilliamsTherell be plenty for Williams to do at the back and hes usually a threat when he goes up for the set pieces. If Wales do score, it could well be the Swansea defender who gets it. When he goes up for the corners and the free-kicks, he really gives his all to get on the end of a cross and score. Hes not one to just go up because the manager has told him to, and thats why hes a good bet to score.Eric Dier Eric Dier scored a surprise free-kick against Russia He did everything that was asked of him playing in the holding role. He reads the game very well and with the ball, he gets it and gives it simple, which every team needs. Again, I see England having a lot of the football.Raheem SterlingThe Manchester City winger had the worst game I think Ive seen anyone ever have against Russia. He had an absolute shocker and did exceptionally well to stay on for 80 minutes. However, I think the Wales game will be perfect for him. Despite being so poor against Russia, hes got to play for me and have a right go at Chris Gunter. If England can get the ball out to Sterling early, I think he can cause Wales and Gunter major problems.Dele AlliThe pressure is on England in this game. Wales can sit back because a point will almost certainly see them through. However, I cant see anything but an England win. If they can get an early goal, it could be by three or four, and I expect Alli to have a major impact on the game. Thommos teamWayne Rooney Wayne Rooney: Backed by both pundits to deliver for Roy Hodgson If one player will relish a local derby, it will be captain Wayne Rooney. He silenced a lot of doubters with his midfield display against Russia and while he may not score as much from a deeper role, hes now guaranteed to rack up points from completing passes and creating chances, while I suspect hell be on penalties.Kyle WalkerEnglands lack of a natural right-winger means Walker is getting forward at every opportunity, seeing lots of the ball, and was one of the star performers on Saturday.Eric Dier Hes provides everything you could ask for when you look at the points breakdown, making tackles, interceptions, passes, winning headers and chipping in with goals.Chris Smalling Im backing England to win 2-0 in my Sky Bet tip, so Ive got to have a couple of Hodgsons defenders in there, while hes also a goal threat from set-pieces.Ashley Williams  Captain Ashley Williams vital to Wales chances, says Thommo If Wales are going to get anything from this game, then Williams will be as important as anybody and will have to win a lot of headers, tackles and interceptions. Hes the leader on the pitch and he will also look to get on the ball a lot.Joe Allen Hes a player I really rate and hope he gets a new contract from Liverpool. Even if Wales are on the losing side, hell be completing passes all afternoon and is key to them getting enough of the ball to Bale. Play Fantasy Six-a-Side Think you can pick a better side?

Vilmas status was posted on the NFLs transaction wire Monday evening. Now in his 10th season, the 31-year-old Vilma had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee in August. Vilma was placed on injured reserve to start the regular seasoon, but designated for return, allowing him to remain with New Orleans and possibly return after eight weeks without consuming a spot on the active roster.dddddddddddd. Each team gets one such designation. Vilma has had multiple knee surgeries and missed five games in each of the past two seasons. The Saints, who closed Mondays practice to media, have not said when they might activate Vilma. ' ' '
