The pitch is wide and the options are many. Your players might determine your strategy for you. Will you play down the flanks to wingers and fullbacks who can cross? If so, you might need a big striker to finish the moves off.
Will you play through balls to quick strikers and hope to catch your opponent off guard?
Will you play to feet through the middle, depending on the trickery of your attacking players?
Will your defence push high up the field and rely on their pace to nullify your opponent?
Every decision, every pass, every tackle, every dribble, shot and save is under your control.
