Technical topics – Defensive 

Marking type
The defensive marking type used by the teams at the Championship varied on the players’ tactical understanding and physical qualities with the teams either using marking with changes, individual man to man or zonal as their preferred defensive marking type. Teams with less defensive understanding or with a coach with a more conservative tactical approach used zonal defence as their preferred defensive system whereas teams with superior fitness and tactical team understanding used man to man or marking with changes.

  • Man to Man
  • Zonal
  • Marking with changes (Well trained teams)

Defensive formations
Most teams’ defensive organisation or formation structure was with GK+1-2-1 or GK+2-2 with the well-trained teams using GK+2-1-1. This meant that at the start of their group defending the team started with three or four lines of defence with most teams able to regroup and protect their goal if their lines were breached.

  • 1-2-1 +GK
  • 2-2 + GK
  • 2-1-1 +GK (Well trained teams when pressing)
