Soccer



You have to have a rock-hard defense.
England 1966.
With defensive triangle
With right inside defense and left side defense
and center half playing right in front of them
playing defense first.
A goalkeeper who is sound and doesn’t flinch when diving
Two out side halfbacks who can run the field
A goal scorer at center forward
and fast wingers who can pick up the odd man
A 4-3-3 system
Keep ball low and pass it around.
