The withdrawn forward has numerous functions when defending including, slowing down the opposition, filling in space, making the opposition play somewhat predictably, just to name a few.
Teams with all formations including the 4-3-3, 3-5-2, 4-4-2, 4-2-3-1, and others can all play with withdrawn forwards of different types.
Getting the best out of your withdrawn forward can be critical to the success of your formation and style of play. Teams use their withdrawn forwards in all kinds of different ways and this book explores how the top pro teams use their withdrawn forwards, how they are affective in their different uses and how you can use the same tactics with your team.
