Southgate is different now
Of course, depending on the situation or specific situation. But from a subjective perspective, how to play first is preparation, strength and belief in oneself. These are all the details that are supporting the Southgate.
At the moment, only Southgate's expertise, not Southgate's status, is under analysts' pressure on the news. In the past, he criticized the three Southgate defenders, pointing out that the three defenders were defending four defenders. But the way Southgate played (3-5-2) was a huge success at the 2018 World Cup. So Southgate itself now has a new weapon. It is faith, spirit and bravery. He is more comfortable and confident in his professional work. And when Southgate returned suddenly to the scheme 4-3-3, he got it immediately. On the other hand, if you think the game depends on staff, the situation of Southgate now, just like the 2018 World Cup, is no different. He always has the right players for his professional opinion.
Patience and trust
In theory, 4-3-3 or 4-2-3-1 or 4-5-1 are the same. The difference between the 3-5-2 is that these graphics always have two midfielders / wingers of support for the single striker, although the defense also has two defenders. Thus, the force to attack the edge will be stronger, and certainly is one of the important factors, it is worth looking at England in the game against Croatia.
On the other hand, it is clear that the current game has to take two sides as it is used to deal with strong teams. How to play 3-5-2 success in the 2018 World Cup, because then he encountered a weak opponent (or not very strong). They need to keep more ball, active attack, so they need more midfield to dominate the midfield. No side attack, Southgate teachers can not "rock" technical skills, attacking the middle, "English" style before Spain or Croatia! This is not purely theoretical – and therefore the two sides are very important but contain no unexpected elements.
The key is the counterattack
Long passes from goalkeeper Jordan, Pickford opened the important situation that led to two-thirds of England's team in a 3-2 victory over Spain. This can be the key to creating opportunities when you meet strong opponents, high pressure and prefer to keep the ball, attack. Croatia is so rival. Specialist in the animation of the English village with the 4-3-3 scheme of Gareth Southgate is also because the scheme is consistent with the counterattack.
