    For me the matches in international cup are very random, not the same engine of the normal game.

    It's frustrating.

    Hey everyone,

    Just 1 day left in this Preparation Phase!

    So the International Cup groups are set to be made tomorrow morning CEST, so you'll be able to see who you're matched up against then. There are no games in the competition on the first day, so you can rest/train your players ahead of Group Match 1 on Friday.

    As I mentioned earlier in the thread, for the sake of the draw, we can't say too much about matchmaking, but if you've been putting a strong team together in the Preparation Phase, you should feel good heading into the groups.

    Those who missed the schedule for this International Cup, see below:

    So the schedule for the first International Cup goes like this.

    Announcement Day (No game)
    Group Stage 1
    No game
    Group Stage 2
    Group Stage 3
    No game
    Round of 16
    Quarter Final
    Semi-Final
    Final

    This final is scheduled for the 9th of June.

    We’ll open up a separate thread once the groups are live. Thanks for all of the feedback throughout the Preparation Phase.

    Good luck!

    I ended up filling my team from Mexico. Its 4-5-1, so I counter them with 3-1-3-3 or 3-4-3, one flank (I have playmaker ML, so I use left flank), High pressing, normal tackle, man-to-man, normal style in the start, attacking when you have high enough level. Short passes, Off-side trap, as I use 3 defenders in line, force counterattacks on.

    Thanks. A little vague but just saying good preparation should benefit is enough I guess.

    This challenge is bloody ridiculous. I just can't get past Japan, and when I do, find Norway is +10%Q when Japan was -10%Q. Three teams, 14 matches played against Japan, 3 wins and 1 draw. I'm spending my last two matches for each side trying to get players off of wins against Australia in order to get some sort of improved side...

    here why I decided to keep a 69,9% avq team, I lost vs australia 3 times -draw too, so no player- and then, I will accept the 7-8* free player once draws are made and do investments later depending of the scenario I see....

    Hey DexDexter, nope a full squad of 23 players is not necessary to participate in the IC.
