This post has been translated from the Hungarian version.
In recent years we have seen the second wind of 4-4-2 in European football, which started not just the defences’ strengthening, but helped another system indirectly to return to the top class football. And this system is the ‘three at the back’ (when defending it’s usually more a five-man chain). I don’t know whether it will be a wide-spread formation or not, but we can see that the evolution has surely begun. Our task is to enjoy it and try to understand its working.
