A difficult match-up for the 4-2-3-1 is the 3-5-2 strategy. Because of its tactical fluidity, the 3-5-2 can cause problems for teams unprepared to adapt to its many looks. The 3-5-2 can quickly transform from an Italian-style catenaccio into a numbers-up attack, confusing opponents. Tactical differences make the 3-5-2 especially difficult for the 4-2-3-1 to manage and overcome. NCAA championship coach Marcus Wood provides you with the know-how to make sure your team won't get caught on the transition against the 3-5-2.

Using whiteboard tactics and match-day analysis, Coach Wood breaks apart the key components of the 3-5-2, its advantages and weaknesses, and how to attack its vulnerabilities. All of the key technical and tactical coaching points are highlighted, including:

  • identifying cues that will help your team exploit the opposing defense
  • changing the point of attack to find penetrating passes
  • using your outside backs to get numerical advantage in the final third
  • exploiting the spaces behind the defense and in the flanks
  • training your outside backs to make good tactical decisions

In addition, you'll see game footage of the formations as they're played against each other. Your players will see how to defend when the ball is in different areas of the field and also how to attack from different areas.
