• Lone striker Håland the reference in attack; rapid support from wide midfielders
• Deep-running wing-backs with midfielders cutting in to open wide channels
• Spells of high pressing forcing opponents to play long; good 2nd-ball abilities
• But emphasis on well-balanced, compact, disciplined defensive unit
• Players with good athletic qualities, work ethic, mental resilience
