 This formation can be very successful if all players do their part on the soccer field and cover their zone in defense as shown in the picture below. 4-2-3-1 system of play can be used against most other soccer formations and the strength of this formation lies in the midfield and overlapping outside defenders (RB & LB). The formation is designed to out-number the opposition in midfield, but have enough flexibility to support both the defense and offense quickly and effectively. Weakness for this formation in soccer comes from three attacking midfield players forgetting that they have to defend and slacking off when transitioning on defense. The 4-2-3-1 soccer formation is played with players marking the zone in blue. Focus on defending the goal by playing zone defense with every player on the field marking their zone where communication will be the key in doing so. The only player having any freedom when defending is the Forward player.
