Fútbol for Gringos has added information on two formations, 3-5-2 and 4-2-2-2.

With the announcemnt that England might use a 3-5-2 and the United States’ propensity to shift from 4-4-2 to 4-2-2-2, we thought it would be pertinent to add these lineups to our strategy section.

World Cup Training Camp

The full 30-man squad is now in Princeton, NJ, with Oguchi Onyewu and Alejandro Bedoya the last to arrive.

According to the Washington Post, recently injured players Carlos Bocanegra, Jay DeMerit, and Eddie Johnson were able to participate in light training, while Chad Marshall continued to spend time with the trainer.

    Why isn’t the 3-5-2 named the 3-4-1-2? The 4-2-2-2 counts the attacking mid-fielders separately….

      Nice observation

      3-5-2 and 3-4-1-2 are, according to some, different formations, but I don’t think they are.

      The way I have it listed is technically a 3-4-1-2, but I included a specific attacking midfielder because the 3-5-2 almost always has 1 midfielder who plays in a more advanced role, even if he’s not listed there on paper.
