Play players in the 1 or 2 ‘natural’ positions listed on their card for them to play at their full ability.
Look to choose a Formation that is the best fit for your squad. If you don’t have strong fullbacks (LB/RB) then playing 3 Defenders might be a good choice, for example. If your Strikers are a weakness, then you could play 5 in Midfield to have more great players playing on the pitch.
Cohesion arrows on the players can be linked together to boost your players’ ability. Experiment with different formations and players to find the best mix to achieve the best possible team with your available squad. Try out different combinations!
Choose a Captain that will complete the most cohesion links and have the biggest impact on the players around him.
