FORMATION 1-2-2-2
WHY USE IT? Simplified shape for more beginner players. With two players in each line players now have to start to work in pairs, two players in the forward line gives us players starting high on the field. The lack of naturally dedicated width could also improve player mobility as they now have to start to figure out who needs to create this and when to do so.
WHICH TOPICS DOES IT HELP TO ENHANCE? Passing and Receiving
Shooting
Defending
Combination Play

FORMATION 1-3-2-1
WHY USE IT? Three defenders provides a solid backline. Two Central Midfield players without higher wide players mean that the Central Midfielder’s have to work on going beyond the ball as well as under it. Lots of space in wide areas due to the wide player’s deeper starting position.
