Defending Free-Kicks

Just like the Defending Corners routine, this one is pretty standard too. I have mad just one standard routine which I always use, regardless of my team. There are many different routines you can make but this one is reliable.

This is really very self-explanatory. I have three men forming a wall and seven man marking. It’s very standard. You could have players mark the front or back posts but I chose not to. If your players are good enough, they should deal with most free-kicks well. If not, then you might struggle. That’ll happen with any routine.
