Today, I successfully opened my first GLG pack of 5 player cards (Two defenders and Three Midfielders). Wasn't lucky to open a gold foiled card yet. I will try out more pack openings and hopefully gold foiled cards would be revealed. My 5 Scout Passes didn't do its work at this first opening.

A team for game play requires a minimum of 8 cards (1 coach and 7 player cards). The breakup of player cards are 1 Coach (Co), 1 Goalkeeper (GK), 2 Defenders (DF), 2 Midfielders (MF), and 2 Forwards (FW).

It's interesting to be a part of this game from the very beginning. Splinterlands developers are doing a big job staying on course with the roadmap of the game's development.
