Sky Sports Fantasy Football managers who avoided the hype surrounding the 'group of death' will have profited as Denmark shocked Netherlands to cause the upset of the opening round.
Four of the Danish back five made the team of the round following the 1-0 win, with Stephan Andersen, Simon Kjaer and Lars Jacobsen all notching seven points, while Liverpool defender Daniel Agger earning 12 with a man of the match display.
With Morten Olsen's men facing the wasteful Portugal in their second match, it could be worth retaining their services before they face Germany, who had Philipp Lahm in the select XI with seven points.
The Oranje's profligacy in front of goal also ruined the chances of most managers - with 36 per cent picking Robin van Persie and 32 per cent going for Arjen Robben - with an ageing star proving he can still find the net to bag the most points for a striker.
Ukraine forward Andriy Shevchenko bagged 17 points with two goals and a man of the match award against Sweden, while Andrey Arshavin notched 13 as he starred for Russia in their 4-1 demolition of Czech Republic.
Shevchenko is now into 16/1 (from 80/1) to be the top tournament scorer after his brace, while Mario Mand¿ukić is the same price (from 100/1) to nab the golden shoe.
Mand¿ukić fired twice to earn Croatia a deserved 3-1 win over Ireland and 12 points for himself, while Alan Dzagoev bagged twice in Russia's victory to start the tournament with a 12-point haul.
Pre-tournament favourites Spain had Cesc Fabregas (7pts) to thank for earning them a 1-1 draw with Italy, and he could be worth keeping in your starting XI with Ireland next up for the European champions.
