Using the France 2-1 win over England for evidence, I have recreated the 4-3-3/4-2-3-1 used by Didier Deschamps to reach the semi-finals.

Out of possession they play 4-3-3, with Antoine Griezmann, the playmaker, turning it more into a 4-2-3-1/4-2-4 when in attack.
Tested with Paris Saint-Germain and France

With and without the ball


This is so key to your team understanding this tactic.

Weekly Match prep, including teamwork and match tactics are needed to help the players understand what's going on, as well as Match Review after each fixture.

Do this early and throughout the season and you will see the benefits.

For the individual players, train them for the position they are going to play and the tactic will benefit.
