Football Manager 2022 Tactics - Gareth Southgate England Tactics 2022
Southgate prefers careful play at the back over attack, looking for opportunities to intercept the ball and launch quick counter-attacks.

Pressing is high and quite risky, so the extra task for the fast fullbacks is to secure the central defenders.

The midfield is quite compact and tight, but they leave a lot of space for their rivals on the wings.

England construct their actions from the back quite slowly and very carefully using plenty of safe passing options at the expense of progress forward, but this is done with a very high rotation.

In the offensive third, speed of play is the priority, hence the large number of first-touch combinations, small space play and free-space passes to flank from where a return pass usually goes into the front of the box to running partners.

The key for the English offense is the rotations on the flanks.

    not enough defenders and defensive mids
    Perhaps in certain matches. What you see above is a compromise, because Southgate is one of those managers who changes his tactics a lot depending on the opponent.
