Russia 2018 has been a murderer.
Yes, the World Cup has been responsible for annihilating the approaches with two forwards in the same line. An organized crime for several years.
All teams are in favor of the accused; at least in initial alignments.
Only Uruguay and the “Maestro” Tabárez are opposed. It is not for less and we will know why.
I would also do the same if Suárez and Cavani coincide on my team.
The 4-4-2, favorite scheme for double point reference, is becoming less common. It has been surpassed by the lines of three in defense and the trivot in the center.
For something, this is called the most tactical football era.
Sacrificing a second striker can give a man more freedom in the last stretch of the field and proliferate attacks, as well as supply the scorer in a more direct way.
Other teams – more radical – have eliminated both forwards.
The line of four flyers is not a bad option, at all.
Everything is a matter of tastes, tools, colors … and claw charrúa.
The last class of the Master
Óscar Washington Tabárez, praising the longest-running technical director of the tournament, opposes the trends.
And the current generation of footballers that he owns gives him the necessary tools to do so.
Suarez and Cavani. Cavani and Suárez.
Just think that only one 70% already makes a difference in one of the best leagues in the world …
The tactical order is a priority in this scheme. The bands? That is something divine.
Uruguay does not have a “10” flyer or hook … Well, it does, but it is not used in its natural position.
Rodríguez and De Arrascaeta are used by the bands.
For this reason, the Uruguayan team does not usually play in the middle and for this reason, perhaps, they have only scored two goals in the competition.
Pure pragmatism, they say.
However, hosting two of the best strikers in the world has its advantages. Especially when it is remembered the season in which Cavani and Ibrahimovic coincided in the PSG.
The mobility of Edinson!
Now it does not look like a move by Sampao… crazy, huh?
Beware of the duo!
