If you don’t know a 4-4-1-1 from a 4-4-2 . . .

The U.S. victory over Spain has brought new attention to the Men’s National Team (MNT).  For the uninitiated, fans’ discussions of 4-4-1-1 over 4-4-2 and the not-rare-enough 9-1 formations may not make sense.  If you count yourself in that group, check out this June 22 post about the development of the U.S. formation into the 4-4-2 that has worked so well against Egypt and Spain.  It provides a good, recent history of U.S. formations and throws some statistics in to boot.

And while you’re there, check out the rest of Match Fit USA.  I wish I had discovered it earlier.
