My World Cup 2018 Tournament with Argentina (FIFA 16 MW+mods)
İmage

To honor the greatest football game ever made and the greatest mod ever made (ModdingWay FIFA 16) I decided to make a Internet tournament report of a World Cup 2018 tournament with my favorite team, Argentina.

I will make a report of each match and post videos and statistics of them.

Ciais has managed to improve the vanilla FIFA 16 gameplay tremendously with 1.01 EXE version and new Gameplayzer mod + sliders. This changes the whole game to more "simulation-like" and you actually see a lot of fouls and free kicks (that you don't usually see in football games that are mainly designed to be arcade fun for online players).

These are the slider and cl.ini settings I'm going to use (after excessive testing I found them to be the most realistic).

Halfs: 15 minutes

Other teams in Group D are Iceland, Croatia and Nigeria. Argentina will play these teams in that particular order.

Salvio's injury turned out to be less serious as previously thought. He will probably be healthy for the final group stage match against Nigeria.

Argentina had made some changes to the lineup. Pavon replaced injured Salvio and Marcos Rojo replaced colossal Federico Fazio in order to bring some speed to the defense.

More results. Only real shocker so far has been Marocco's 1-0 win over Portugal in the previous day. That shattered Christiano Ronaldo's World Cup dream and Portugal is eliminated.

Sweden's win over Germany can be considered a surprise too.

Standings.

Group F is very interesting as Sweden, Germany and Mexico are battling to advance. Sweden and Mexico will play eachother and Germany plays against Korean Republic.

Argentina had changed goalkeeper Caballero to Franco Armani. They played with 4-4-2 diamond formation, with Gonzalo Higuain making his World Cup debut.

Argentina are looking to put their tricky World Cup start behind them against 1998 winners France in the last 16 on Saturday.

A narrow win with minnows Iceland, uninspiring defensive 1-1 tie with Croatia left the 2014 finalists with 4 points, thus even a 0-1 loss against Nigeria after disastrous performance couldn't stop Argentina going to the second round, with better goal difference than Nigeria.

They went through with only two goals scored in three games.

Heavily criticized Argentina coach Jorge Sampaoli is now looking forward to playing 1998 winners France in the last-16. France is a huge favorite to win the World Cup as they finished their group with full 9 points and a crushing 9-1 goal difference.

"We are going to play against a team with great individual players," Sampaoli said. "They are among the very best contenders and we will need to be very consistent to come out on top of a very difficult match."

After Argentina's loss against Nigeria, Sampaoli headed to the dressing room without celebrating alongside his players.

Argentina had decided very defensive 5-4-1 formation with Gonzalo Higuain as a lone striker. Gabriel Mercado started instead of Federico Fazio.

France went to the game with different approach and they completely dominated the game for the first half.

Argentina haven't started all guns blazing as some would have expected. After a series of uninspiring lucky wins and disastrous losses (Nigeria), they would hope to bring their talent to the forefront, especially the deadly attacking duo of Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani.

La Albiceleste have one of the best strike forces in the world and the midfield also looks good on the paper with the likes of Dybala, Banega and Di Maria. Di Maria’s form was a cause of worry after a mixed season, but his performance against France was exceptional.

Arguably the best player in the world, Lionel Messi, has only scored one goal so far.

The blend of (quality) youth and (quality) experience is darn near ideal with Uruguay. Cavani, Suarez and Godin are still close enough to their primes. And the next generation has emerged just in time for Russia, in almost every position of need. So Uruguay has the dynamic, clinical frontmen; it has a central defensive marshal, but also a 23-year-old physical specimen, Gimenez, beside him. And unlike Argentina, their group stage was phenomenal. All pieces are there for Uruguay to advance to the final four.
