Lagerbäck's diamond formation

Lars Lagerbäck discusses the system he used with Sweden.

The diamond formation is one which works best with attack-minded full-backs who are willing to work the full length of the pitch down their particular flank. Lars Lagerbäck, who used the system while in charge of the Sweden national team, talks through its requirements and advantages.
