Organization:

- Functional play

- Timing of supporting movement

- Pressure on the ball - that is the Cue to offer deep support

- Combination off the front CF to break the backline (1-2 off striker, support underneath to penetrate)

- Take overs/Fake take-overs

- Disquised movement

- Creating space for overlapps, Underlapps
