4-2-3-1 Narrow Formation

Mode: Attacking (Lone Striker) / Defending
Formation Base: 4-5-1
Available in: Career Mode / Kick-off / Tournaments

Suitable for the games where you want to score using a lone striker and be steady on your midfield and defence.

This formation seems to be defensive, but it is quite a flexible formation, as the wingers and the full-backs can both join the attack. The midfielders behind the single attacker are ataccking midfielders (CAM) and the two midfielders behind them are defensive (CDM) which means they are helping the defenders.

Suggested Counter Formations: 4-5-1 / 4-4-2
