Video: How the 4-2-3-1 was used in the 2010 and 2014 World Cup final

With less than a year now for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, supporters across the globe will be eagerly looking forward to the most popular sports’ biggest spectacle. While the World Cup delivers something for all viewers, from casual fans to enthusiasts, there’ll be a small subset who will be keenly following the tournament, purely from a tactical perspective. Because, despite the World Cup being only once in four years, it’s tactical implications can cause a much larger ripple effect.

The below video by uMAXit details how the 4-2-3-1 became the norm after Spain’s application of it in the 2010 World Cup final, and goes on to explain how Germany enhanced that same formation into a more modern tactic.

The World Cup in Russia could potentially throw a lot more tactical surprises – we may actually see the three man defensive system become the new default template. It remains to be seen though, how the tactics sway.

The Premier League in the meanwhile, has already adopted both 4-2-3-1 a couple of years back and is beginning to open it’s arms to the three man defensive system as well. Long gone are the days of a typical 4-4-2 approach in the English game.
