Football Manager 2023 Tactics - Luis Enrique Spain World Cup Tactics
Enrique’s approach to ball possession focuses more on constantly penetrating the opponent’s defensive zone rather than playing the ball deep and patiently.

Spain’s 4-3-3 formation employs two variations when the team is in possession: either the defenders are positioned high and wide, allowing the midfielders to drop back and triangularly circulate the ball on the wings, or the defenders are positioned deeper and the midfielders focus on combination passes in the centre of the pitch.

Defensively their full backs get forward to intercept the opponent’s wingers and often force them backwards.

The central midfielders also push aggressively against their rivals’ central defenders. When the opponent retreats to the middle to provide additional passing opportunities,

Spain’s trio of central defenders aggressively press the midfield, which combined with the midfielders’ aggressive pressing prompts the rivals to play more directly past the second line.

The approach to ball possession is mainly based on triangular combinations between central midfielder, defender and winger.

The only goal is to progress with position rotations and passing combinations in triangles.

Wide triangles in the offensive third consisting of a full back, a striker and a suitable central midfielder are in turn crucial for developing possession of the ball in the opponent’s half and finalising actions.

The full back overlap the winger while at the same time the central midfielder regularly runs into the half-spaces or looks for space for himself between the lines.
