Brazilian Tactics Revealed…
Play a two-touch possession-game; however, you cannot pass the ball back to the person who passed it to you. What this does is creates short/quick passing between teammates and movement from a third player. This often creates a triangle formation among the players. In a real game situation, the formation of a triangle will give you at least two options for passing a moving.
Also, when you make your quick passes (which will attract the opposing team) then it is time for a long ball switch. You are almost teasing the opposing team to lure them in before you make a quick long pass. This is not a “long ball” style of play where you send the ball down the field but rather a switch from the left side to the right side of the field (or vice versa).
As simple as these two concepts are, they are extremely effective. The Dutch and Brazilian national teams use this style of play to perfection. As a player, it adds more excitement to the game.
