Stop 8.1 – June – You and The Pharaohs


https://i.imgur.com/KVpyMcK.png


Welcome to stop number 8.1 of ‘SUSIE On Tour 2018’ where of course, we can't escape World Cup fever!. Due to the excitement ahead of the tournament, we've gone ahead and prepared TWO World Cup challenges for you to try out this month, releasing them both at the same time so that you can play at your own pace.

Stop 8.1 is our second international stint also sees us in the continent of Africa for the 2nd time as you take charge of Mo Salah and his Egyptian pals in a quest for World Cup glory... if of course, you can qualify! Taking over at the start of August 2017, with an average squad and a superhuman Salah, you will have just 4 matches to secure your qualification and the whole challenge is a short one, lasting until the end of the FIFA World Cup in 2018. There's a lot of pressure on the early days of this challenge!

https://i.imgur.com/gqFyFym.png

To compete, you have a globetrotting squad which is fairly talented, though we all know who the main man is here! That average back-line may haunt you, but you may be able to compromise with the decent level of depth across the midfield.

https://i.imgur.com/uFTbpuP.png

You'll start the campaign chasing Ghana, with the potential for our BIGGEST EVER penalty if you don't manage to overturn their slender lead. 4 games, 12 points and 1 place at the World Cup up for grabs. You'll also get a bonus shot at the African Championship of Nations, so you can get that vital torunament experience before Russia!

Scoring:
Qualify for the World Cup:

Automatic- 20pts
Failure - -50pts

AFCHAN:
Winners - 25pts
Runners Up – 15pts

World Cup:

Semi Finals – 30pts
Quarter Finals – 20pts

Awards – Manager of Tournament, Player of the Tournament, Top Goal Scorer – 5pts each (World Cup only)
Sacked - -25 pts and the challenge is over

So no World Cup for Egypt and a Quarter Final exit in the Cup of Nations means I've made -50 points from this dreadful challenge.

Thankfully I qualified @Shedender... though the defence terrifies me! The squad for the African Championships was woeful too.

Will update after what I expect will be a very brief World Cup!
In every Hollywood movie, there's an inept character that somehow tags along until the end of the story despite contributing to nothing but comic relief.

It is my ambition to be that character here, so I'm boldly (if I may say so myself) throwing my proverbial hat in the ring, in the guise of Zoran Vulic (who remains a legend for middle-aged Hajduk fans such as myself)!

Proof that I'm used to mediocrity, I wasn't that disappointed with their defense. It's more the lack of depth and useful stats on most of the players that worries me. Also, It's a bit of a one-man team.

Anyway, I'll be back shortly to cover myself with ridicule, miserable results and poorly-cut screen views.

In the meantime, good luck to everyone!

On the right or on the left, it didn't help that Mo Salah was pretty dreadful for me - bar one game.
Qualified myslef though was only because after thrashing me, Ghana then somehow drew 1-1 at home with Uganda...

Yep I've pretty much had this too and it's now looking like he might miss the world cup for me as he's injured... Art imitating life!

Did we have that same problem with Mahrez?

Yep. He was mince for Algeria under my short and painful regime.

Ah yeah, I forgot about Mahrez. The similarities in positions are there too. Winger-come-attacker with the hopes of the nation on their shoulders.

It didn't help that you weren't allowed Salah (or any non home based players) in your ACoN squad. The Egyptian based players are, how should I say it? Crap.

@KEZ_7 and/or @Dan, I have edited my original post in which I've added my Cup of Nations results.

We've done it! Unbeaten in my stint with one draw and three victories. We qualify top of the group! World Cup Qualified: 20 Points

https://i.imgur.com/WPxXe4p.png

We coasted through the AFCHAN! A straight forward group I thought, ended up seeing us finish second however as we were shocked by Libya beating us to finish top. Morocco was the toughest side we faced, but beat them 2-0 in extra time before facing much easier sides of Angola and Zambia in the Semi Final and Final to go on and win the competitions. AFCHAN WINNERS - 25 Points

https://i.imgur.com/77xAv0b.png

The World Cup definitely chucked us in a hard group! Spain, Peru and Belgium alongside us! We snuck through though! Beating Peru in the opener was a huge boost. Belgium beat us leading it down to the final group game. A draw against Spain in the final game was enough to secure our top qualification in second place though!

Next up we faced Coumbia and despite it taking extra time, managed to thump them! 1-1 after 90 minutes only for us to end up 4-1 winners at the end of extra time, two of those goals being from the spot too. Unfortunately then it was bigger sides left in, Portugal awaited us in the last 8 and were too strong as we went out, 3-1. World Cup - Quarter Finals - 20 points.

Total:
world cup qualifiers: Qualified - 20 points
AFCHAN - Winners - 25 points
World Cup - Quarter Finalist - 20 points
Total: 65 points.
@Dan I think in the world cup you will be the best

Shameful!
A grand total of.... 5pts

You done way better than me!
Wish I would have discovered this tour thing earlier! This is fantastic, getting my game set up now and will see how I do!
Manged to win my WC Qualifying group on GD after beating Uganda on the final match day 6-2. Will update further in a little bit.

On a related note, y'all think I should get that 44-year old GK to reconsider his retirement?

I'll see you
https://i.imgur.com/WBp69a7.png

The challenge began very promising with two good games against Ghana. - Qualified for the World Cup: 20 points
https://i.imgur.com/Nl3cuQP.pnghttps://i.imgur.com/i2xUv71.png

The group stage of the African Nations Championship was a torture without foreign based players. But we just did it by one point.
We brushed Cameroon aside in the quarter final but lost to Morocco on penalties (6-7!) in the semi final. - Reached Semi Final: 5 Points
https://i.imgur.com/M3WQLZ8.pnghttps://i.imgur.com/8Ar5H5C.png

In a very difficult group at the World Cup we missed too many chances and got knocked out in the group stage. - 0 Points
https://i.imgur.com/r7OwFYH.pnghttps://i.imgur.com/beKa8jq.png


Total: 25 Points

I stumbled across the challenge coincidentally and gave it a go. Never posted on here before but it was good fun and I had a decent run in the VVC so I thought I'll share my results :

https://preview.ibb.co/cD1rtT/coach.png
Screen taken after the world cup so stats may have changed a bit

Qualifiers: Thanks to two good games against Ghana the loss against Congo had no consequence, 20 pts

https://preview.ibb.co/h5CNYT/results1.png
https://preview.ibb.co/eRVgSo/table1.png

African Nations Championship: Easily went through the group stage just to get kicked out by Congo's C team in the 1/4 final, 0 pts
https://preview.ibb.co/hxzKDT/table2.png
https://preview.ibb.co/fJWS08/results2.png

VVC: Drew a fairly easy group (compared to others at least) and despite being overwhelmingly dominated in each game I managed with a good amount of luck to make it to the 1/4 final where we got hammered 4-0 by Brazil, 20 pts
https://preview.ibb.co/mn34DT/results3.png
https://image.ibb.co/b5iFL8/table3.png
https://preview.ibb.co/kQ45L8/results4.png

Surprisingly enough my best player has been Marwan Mohsen scoring 15 goals in 20 games (+3 assists). In comparaison Mo Salah, who I played as a striker, scored only 7 goals in 14 games.

Concerning the challenge, if I'm not mistaking it amounts to a total of 40 pts








Wish I would've found these challenges earlier, this is fun! Well, here goes:

Matches 2018 (CHAN and WC):

Golden Boot for Hassan:
https://i.imgur.com/RyRbu1o.png

So... Guess that makes 20 (Quali) + 25 (CHAN Winner) + 20 (WC Quarter Final) + 5 (Germany) + 5 (Golden Boot) = 75 points

Had a lot of luck with the WC Group, but beating Germany in the 2nd round... Completely amazing....
Quarter Final against Spain, I was up 1-0 within 10 minutes, they equalised 10 minutes later.
The match was even, untill they started attacking in the last 15 minutes or so...
Extra time was nailbiter, with the goal coming in the 111th minute thanks to a penalty which media later claimed was 'not a penalty'......


England-challenge is next, curious if that'll go just as fine...

You need to fix your screenshots @Siepe1990.
Well, definitely not great but was fun to do none the less.

WC Group Stage..started off good, then de-railed completely as expected.

https://i.imgur.com/ky9w8rd.png?1

WC Group...was drawn into a pretty tough group. Was really happy after the 4-0 win over Peru, but then came the England game..

Overall...I did pretty terrible as the boss of Egypt. Hope to do better with England next time around.

SCORE
20 points for automatic qualification
-15 for group exit in African Championship
0 for WC Group Stage exit

Overall 5 points
