Time has now progressed to what is widely considered to be the half-way point of the European season. For the young starlets of The Hunger Games, they have (hopefully) settled down in to professional football, and should be aiming to make a mark whenever possible. Some players may have gone out on loan at this stage. Check your profile to find out if your player was one of them.

Here we take a look at the attribute profiles, season stats and transfer status of each player.

Just remember, no player will face elimination in the first three seasons as the young players look to develop their skills. However, bonuses will still be awarded.

1st February 2018

The end of the majority of Europe's transfer windows have come to an end, and a number of our contestants have found themselves out on loan. Indeed, ten players saw themselves temporarily away from their club in search of more regular playing time, despite their young ages.

A vast number of nations became the temporary home of many of our players, with players signing on loan for clubs from Belgium, Denmark, England, France, Germany, Greece and Mexico.

Genie found himself his first professional contract at En Avant de Guingamp of France.

FIFA World Cup 2018 Preview

Coming towards the end of the 2017-2018 season, a few of the contestants had become senior internationals for their countries. You may see in the player profiles at the end of the season who had won caps and who had not.

The FIFA World Cup brought an opportunity for nations around the world to compete in the most prestigious competition in association football. While the vast majority of our contestant were either deemed not ready to make the step up to senior football for their country, or saw their sides not qualify, one of us would play in the greatest competition of all.

Lewie Roberts of Wales was our only representative in the competition, but what a representative. He played a couple of games for his country as a substitute but had not yet started or scored. He had plenty of competition for the striker role with the likes of Ben Woodburn, Sam Vokes and Tyler Roberts (no relation) also travelling to Russia. Gareth Bale and Harry Wilson were also in the squad, and they were expected to have big tournaments.

FIFA World Cup 2018 Group Stage

Lewie Roberts and Wales had qualified for the World Cup and were drawn in to an exciting group which contained England, Iran and U.S.A.. Could Wales progress to the next round?

Group H

Wales Finished Second In Their Group

Game 1

Iran 1-2 Wales - 20/06/2018
Kazan Arena | Attendance: 45,105

Starting XI (4-3-2-1): Rahmati ; Rezaeian (73'), Akbari, Tafazolli, Mohammadi; Karimi (77'), Ezatolahi , Hajsafi; Jahanbakhsh, Ghoddos (58'); Ansarifard
Subs Used: Shojaei (58'), Ghaseminejihad (73'), Shekari (77')

Starting XI (4-4-2): Maxwell; Gunter, Chester, Williams, Davies; Wilson (58'), Ramsey, Allen, Bale; Woodburn , Vokes
Subs Used: Lawrence (58')

It was an incredibly tense fixture, surprisingly, as Iran controlled plenty of the possession in the early stages. However, no Wales game would go without Gareth Bale making an influential action, and it was his action which brought about the opening goal. The Welsh superstar looked to lob Iran's goalkeeper from forty-five yards out and the keeper looked to have caught the ball, but let the ball slip through his hands in to the back of the net.

Iran fought back and scored a deserved equaliser in the first minute of the second half. Karim charged forward down the right wing and picked out Ezatolahi on the edge of Wales' area. The midfielder placed a shot towards the far corner, which was out Maxwell's reach. The game was level once more.

Great players score important goals, and there was no doubt that Ben Woodburn was on the way to becoming a great player. Gareth Bale created the goal, once again, with a delightful back post cross from very deep. Woodburn cushioned an excellent header low and in to the far corner, giving Wales an important opening game victory.

Game 2

Wales 0-3 England - 25/06/2018
Saint Petersburg | Attendance: 64.287

Starting XI (4-4-2): Hennessey; Gunter, Chester, Williams, Davies; Lawrence (74'), Ramsey, Allen, Bale; Woodburn (80'), Vokes (65')
Subs Used: T. Roberts (65'), Wilson (74'), L. Roberts (80')

Starting XI (4-3-3): Butland; Walker, Stones (80'), Jones, Rose; Dier, Henderson, Wilshere; Sterling (65'), Kane , Rashford (84')
Subs Used: Lallana (65'), Gomez (80') , Alli (84')

England were dominant throughout the game, but had to wait until late in the first half to break the deadlock. Rashford played a one-two with Kane before unleashing a low drive from the penalty area to put England in front.

Harry Kane was at the heart of everything positive for England, and he scored the second. Kane picked out Lallana on the right wing, and got on the end of the midfielder's whipped cross to slot a tidy finish for England's second.

The English killed the game off with seven minutes to go as a Liverpool duo combined. Jordan Henderson whipped in a free kick from wide which evaded a number of players to find Joe Gomez, who had come off the bench, and the ball ended up in the back of Wales' net for a third time.

Game 3

Wales 2-1 U.S.A. - 29-06-2018
Fisht | Attendance: 45,000

Starting XI (4-4-2): Maxwell; Gunter, Chester, Walsh, Davies (67'); Lawrence, Ramsey (71'), Allen, Bale ; Woodburn, Vokes (57')
Subs Used: L. Roberts (57') , Dummett (67'), Wilson (71')

Starting XI (4-3-3): Hamid; Yedlin, Carter-Vickers, Brooks, Johnson; Hyndman, Bradley, McKennie (45'); Siebatcheu (62'), Wood , Jóhannsson (71')
Subs Used: Pulisic (45'), Boyd (62'), Green (71')

This may go down as one of the greatest games in Wales' history, but it did not begin their way. After twenty minutes, the Americans took the lead. Yedlin floated a cross in to Wales' box, and Bobby Wood rose highest to power a header in. It was a goal that looked certain to have knocked Wales out of the competition, with the Welsh requiring a win to progress.

Wales battled and fought, but the Americans were well-disciplined and showed impressive structure. However, Gareth Bale was no ordinary footballer, and he proved to be the difference. With twenty minutes remaining, Aaron Ramsey drilled a low cross in to the area, and Bale finished with aplomb. Wales needed just one more goal to progress to the knockout stages.

The stage was set for a hero to be born, but USA were controlling possession in Wales' area. It was Wales' key players who made the difference in the final minutes, with a new young star sealing a moment of magic. Gareth Bale won the ball back in Wales' penalty box and unleashed a superb sixty yard long ball to send Ben Woodburn forward. The Liverpool attacker cut back for our very own Lewie Roberts, who showed composure beyond his years to add the finishing touch, sending Wales to the last sixteen. The young striker's goal was his first for Wales, and what an important goal it was! Lewie Roberts had certainly announced himself on the biggest stage of them all!

Wales Would Face Reigning Champions Germany In The Last Sixteen

Lewie Roberts' heroics rewarded Wales with a game against Germany in the Last 16. The reigning champions were strong favourites but with the likes of Gareth Bale, Ben Woodburn, Aaron Ramsey, Harry Wilson and the emergence of Lewie Roberts, anything was possible.

FIFA World Cup 2018 Last Sixteen

Lewie Roberts' heroics in Wales' final group fixture against USA saw them progress to the Last 16 of the World Cup, where they were to face the reigning champions Germany. Let's see how Roberts & Co. fared.

Last 16

Germany Progressed Beyond Wales After Extra Time

Germany e3-2 Wales - 03/07/2018
Fisht | Attendance: 45,000

Starting XI (4-2-3-1): Neuer; Kimmich, Hummels, Süle, Henrichs; Khedira , Kroos; Sané (45'), Özil (45'), Reus ; Müller (51')
Subs Used: Stindl (45'), Werner (45') , Volland (51')

Starting XI (4-4-2): Maxwell; Gunter, Chester, Williams, Davies; Wilson, Ramsey (62'), Huws, Bale (81'); Woodburn , Vokes (56')
Subs Used: L. Roberts (56') , Lawrence (62'), Robson-Kanu (81')

In all my years of FM, I don't think I've ever seen a game like this! It was action-packed from start to end. Germany began proceedings with a very early goal as James Chester bundled Marco Reus to the ground in the penalty box, and the Dortmund attacker stepped up to coolly slot the opening goal of the game with a low placed effort to the left.

It took just a matter of minutes for Wales to respond, and how they did just that! Gareth Bale won the ball back in Wales' half and launched a long range pass to Harry Wilson on the right wing. The tricky winger picked out Vokes with a deep cross, and the striker's header was a threatening one. Manuel Neuer parried it away, but only as far as Ben Woodburn who had been lurking around the six yard mark, and the teenage sensation tapped in to level the scores.

The goal gave Wales momentum early on in the game, and Vokes nearly scored a goal of his own but was left in dismay. Woodburn had beaten a number of German defenders before lifting a ball in to the area where Vokes was running in to, but the Welsh striker powered his header from close range well over the bar. A let off for Germany.

Vokes was, once again, a culprit for bad finishing as Ben Woodburn created yet another superb chance. This one was a much easier chance as Vokes was playing on the shoulder of Hummels, and Woodburn's delightful forward pass sent him through one-on-one with Neuer, but his shot was straight at the goalkeeper and was saved comfortably.

Wales' momentum continued right in to the second half, with Woodburn and Wilson, in particular, looking very threatening. Bale looked to create a chance of his own from a free kick on the edge of the area, but saw his powerful shot crash off the crossbar.

Our very own Lewie Roberts was brought on for the misfiring Sam Vokes, and he made the ultimate impact in the seventieth minute. Harry Wilson made space for himself on the right wing before picking out Roberts in the area with an inch-perfect cross, and Roberts slotted a neat header past Neuer to put Wales in the lead with just twenty minutes to go. A much deserved goal.

Unfortunately, things did not go Wales' way in the end. The most dubious of refereeing decisions was made in stoppage time with lasting consequences for Wales. Lars Stindl played a ball in to Timo Werner, who was clearly very offside, and the latter then crossed for Kevin Volland to volley in a very very undeserved equaliser. Wales were robbed, as Werner was offside.

Was Timo Werner Offside? Make Your Own Decision On That One!

The game went in to extra time following that controversial incident, and Germany began to smell blood. First Reus went close with a left footed half-volley from inside the area, before Khedira looped a header just wide from a corner.

With two minutes to go, it was Sami Khedira who scored the decisive goal. Lars Stindl saw his cross blocked, but the ball fell to Khedira on the edge of the area and the Juventus midfielder struck a low half-volley which whistled in to the back of Wales' goal. Germany had taken the lead.

It was not over yet. Wales still had something in them. Lewie Roberts went on a one-man mission in the final minute, completing a mazy run to work his way in to Germany's box. Just as he took the ball past Mats Hummels, the German defender illegally brought down the Welsh prodigy. It was a last minute penalty to Wales.

Up stepped Harry Wilson, but he never looked confident. He blazed the penalty well over the bar, meaning Germany would progress. Wales were out.

Knockout Stages

Harry Kane Became World Champion

For England, it was a fairytale campaign. They defeated Uruguay, Poland and Italy en route to the final, and a narrow win saw them lift the trophy. Dele Alli scored the winning goal, but Harry Kane is claiming it. Typical.
Whoops. There goes any admiration I received from the fans after I went to MK Dons. It's been some pretty interesting developments in my career so far.
