It is an art in itself to compose a starting team, finding the balance between creative players and those with destructive powers, and between defence, construction and attack вЂ“ never forgetting the quality of the opposition and the specific pressures of each match.
The accent in the counter attack style of play lays on the defensive team
function, with the emphasis being on the defender's own half of the field
and letting the opponents keep the initiative of the game. This is to take
advantage of the space behind their defense for the buildup and the attack.
