They often adopt a 4-3-3 shape in the final attacking phase.
Mexico prefer defending with a high central block and trying to adapt to the situation depending on the opponent.
They are more compact between the lines – often using a tight organised structure in the centre, making them more difficult to force through the middle, but also more effective in transition phase by providing their midfielders with high starting positions when the ball is intercepted.
After intercepting the ball their first intention is to direct the ball to alone striker although they do not avoid patiently building up the action.
The defenders actively support the attacks and try to create an advantage in the opponent’s structure while the forward at this time engages the opposing defenders by pulling them off their line and looking for free spaces.
