The EA 2014 FIFA World Cup game was released a few weeks ago. FIFA’s most exciting thing is attacking but they also say defense wins championships. This time we are bringing you a defensive strategy guide of 2014 FIFA World Cup game.

Here is the Part One: Knowing the key positions and roles in defense.


First of all, you need to know how many defenders your team (your opponent’s team) is on the field. The method is very simple, the first digit of the team formation indicates the number of defensive players for example 4-4-2 formation has 4 defenders. We will introduce one by one.

3 defenders: usually seen in 3-5-2 formation. The disadvantage is very solid defense in middle of the pitch that makes opponent hard to penetrate, the short coming is also obvious, difficult to cover more space, leaving many vulnerable spots if spread out. This method is not seen much at high level matches, but very useful if you have fast center backs.


4 defenders: the most commonly used defensive strategy in football, a balanced system with no obvious advantages nor disadvantages. The layout is simple: two central defenders and two full backs in an equal line. While the main job of the two center backs is to cover the middle of the pitch, they have different focuses. One is responsible for covering space, the other responsible for stopping and slowing opponent’s attack as well as eliminating possible danger. The two full backs are supposed to cover the flanks and prevent attacking from wings, but they usually have extra task which is to join the attack by looking for chances in deep wings. Such combination of full backs and wingers is called ‘Wing Backs‘. It is frequently used in teams like Barcelona and Madrid with players like Daniel Alves, Marcelo, and Jordi Alba


5 defenders: there are two types of 5 defenders system. One is simply an enhancement of the 3 defenders formation, which means adding wing backs to swing and counter. The other however is the most conservative play. Each defender with less space to cover becomes more effective in blocking opponent’s attack. But this results in a boring game without much excitement in scoring. It is reasonable when a team wants to defend a lead or the defenders are old and slow, like the case of Italy.
