Suggested .5-2.5 Star Teams

Does anyone have any suggestions for .5-2.5 star team to take? Thailand is very good for a 1 star.

Check the achievement guide for selected teams, though I'd recommend:
1-star: Kazakhstan (good speed and handling for a 1-star team)
2-star: New Zealand
3-star: Canada

1*: I did okay with Thailand but lost 1st round.
2*: Seina Leone
3*: Montenegro or Togo. I've done well with both. both have quick ST and good midfields, play defensive and go on counters... I got to the final with each but missed out in ET.

1*: Grenada, great forwards in Jason roberts and Joseph (hes like drogba) i won it first go with these.
2*: Seina Leone, very strong team and quick defense and forwards who have very good finishing i got tothe final with these.
3*: Wales, very fast up top with Bellamy and Earnshaw i got to the Quarters with these with 17 goals in 4 games for Bellamy but then my tournament glitched so i had to restard.

3*: Montenegro, everyone i have spoke to about 3 star teams said this is the team to use obviously with vucinic up top you cant go wrong!

They also have a lm that is an actual striker that is great at crossing into Vucinic. I've gone to the finals with them twice. One time I lost in ET and the other was smashed by Poland of all people... I play defensive and just wait til I see Vucinic going at an angle, long ball it for a 1v1 vs the keeper. works 90% of the time.

from my experience, Senegal is a very good 3-star team, too.

Fast and skilled players.

Good thread.

For a decent 3-star team, I would recommend Canada.

If your good on the attack, then change to 4-3-3 with Nakajima-Farran up top with Radzinski and the other decent striker to the side of him.

Nakajima-Farran makes some good runs and is quite fast too, plus he seems quite good at scoring.

The defense is fairly good, the midfield is a little weak, especially at 4-3-3, but most of the time I just play straight to the strikers and use the midfield as the first line of defence really.

EDIT: Montenegro is actually the way to go, really strong team for 3 stars.

Good 2* Congo, strong physically and fairly quick.

Good 1* Rwanda, come on there Rwanda.

I've got to last 16 with Rwanda 4 times out of 5 tries, but lost every one!

Got to last 16 with Congo in my one and only try only to lose again against holland!!

I can confirm that Estonia is a good team. Beat Spain by using them.

3 stars: Montenegro, I got to the final earlier today with them but I lost, against England of course...but they are probably the best team with 3 stars. For 1 and 2 stars it's harder to pick one team but Kazakstan and Congo seems to be pretty good.

Im through to the semi-final with Montenegro after winning all my group games and beating France and Mexico in the QF and L16.

Gonna struggle to get further than this though.

Tried Wales, Canada, Togo and Montenegro and have to say that Montenegro is a very decent team, defenitely my favorite 3 star team. Togo is a close second.

Just got knocked out in the semi by Spain losing 5-3, using Montenegro, I had already beaten Argentina (3-0) and England (3-1) in the Round of 16 and 1/4's, I actually thought I was gonna go all the way, then I met Mr Torres, and after leading 3-2 at half time, he went and scored 3 1 v 1's in the 2nd half, wata joke lol.

I wanna say I enjoy this mode, but the fact the lowest rated team Ive come across in 4 WC campaigns is 4.5 stars, I have no hope of doing it with a 1 star -.-

I know how you feel im currently in the final with Sierra Leone (1.5*) my last achievement, got a lucky run play Wales in 16 USA in quarters and Ireland in the semis, all the player were pretty good but i keep matching up against spain in the final and i have a feeling i will get beat so im trying to wait for a 4* team or something so i have a decent chance.

Jamaica are a really good 2.5 star team, imo better than other 3 star teams. Got to quarter finals with them but scored 10 goals with Sheldon who seems to finish every single chance with easy.

Honduras are a great 3* option.
Suazo upfront has great pace and a good finish - Palacios and Hendry Thomas can control the midfield, J de Leon is good with free kicks can play on the right or left

definitely give them a try

After trying a hundred times I finally won the Online World Cup with a 3 star team. In the final I beat Nigeria 4-3 after being behind 1-3.

I took Honduras, now it is 3.5 star but it will still give you the achievement.

Honduras are best for 3* in my opinion, before I tried with Costa Rica and Burkina Faso a lot, but could not get that far.

Now I am trying 2*.
So far I checked out New Zealand, Estonia, Congo, Sierra Leone and Oman.
I feel like Oman was best for me.

edit:
checked out Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Kenia, Uganda, Sudan too.

Zimbabwe has some good attackers, and Kenia is my 2nd favorite, they are more balanced.

but still a long way to go, did not get past quarter finals yet.

Must have been another 50 times, and I got the two star achievement.

By far the best 2 Star Team is Congo, they are well balanced and quick, too - put Malonga into the middle instead of left, as he is the best striker.

Now going for 1 star....
