TACTICAL ANALYSIS: A formation tweak for the Three Lions against Germany? Euro 2020 squad prediction

Why the need for a tweak?

Undoubtedly, the England squad that Gareth Southgate has put together is one of the best the Three Lions have had in a while. However, their performances in the UEFA EURO 2020 so far have been everything but desirable. Yes, they’re in the round of 16 knock-out stage, but England fans feel it’s perhaps a credit to sheer luck. The team hasn’t been creating enough goal-scoring chances.

Which is true, England has only scored two goals so far in the competition, and they now face a free-flowing German opposition, ready to go all out to win the tournament. In addition, fans are questioning Southgate’s in-game tactics and squad selection. Therefore, in this article, we will analyze a possible tweak in the system England plays to enable them to create more chances going forward. (3-4-3/ 3-5-2)
