No problem with us starting with the formation we chose, but it was obvious from the start we was going to struggle with penetration, as well as defending there movement. Hopefully they will tire a bit in the second half and play with less tempo, but we should change this now. With Aurelio going wide left, Kuyt wide right, Lucas top of the midfield diamond and Gerrard bottom of the midfield Diamond , then Yossi to play alongside Torres!
Now half time, change to as suggested above but bring on Babel to play up front with Torres, move Yossi to the top of the Diamond, take Lucas off.
Taking Lucas off because he is out of his depth at this level, with the 4-4-2 diamond midfield we have the ability to keep the ball up field as well as compete and give support when we lose possession!
2-4 FINAL SCORE!
