Squads, Tactics & Formations 2

Following on from yesterday’s post, here’s an alterative line-up.

Subs: YEBOAH , GNANHOUAN, ANGOUA, BAMBA, COULIBALY, BOKA, GOSSO-GOSSO, YA KONAN, GRADEL, NE MARCO, KALOU, BONI, GERVINHO

This 4-3-2-1 formation focuses more on possession and direct passing in triangles and diamonds amongst the team.  I have pulled Tiene back to the left-back position, and brought in Zokora to hold the defensive midfield line.  Keita starts alongside Doumbia behind Drogba.  Potential changes are Gervinho for Keita, Gradel for Drogba (switches to Doumbia’s position who is pushed up front).  Depending on the pattern of play, Kalou could come in for Gervinho or Ya Konan could feature in place of Doumbia.  In the event of injuries, Angoua would get first call at the back, and Bamba could follow.  Boka would remain a replacement for anyone in midfield or defense, as I believe he has the pace to deal with any of those positions.
