First and foremost, I thought I had it set.. until I used this tactic for my Fulham team for one season, and have decided to manage the Serb u23 side throughout the Olympic games and having played 3 games, im having tremendous trouble keeping clean sheets. So I have come to ask for some advice from the tactical magicians on how i can fix up my defense.
- I have found that during the Olympic, I have conceded 4 goals in 3 matches - 3 of those goals have come from 78th min to 90 min. I have tried putting time wasting often and to no avail. The only other goal was in the 5th minute of play against Argentina. I even had Ivanovic (Chelsea), Stojkovic (Sporting) and Vidic as my overage players trying to tighten my defense and i still let in 4. Im the type of manager who would rather prefer a 0:0 rather than a 2:2 or 3:3 or 1:1 draw - i hate letting goals in.

Thanks for your time.

How can I limit their shots on target with the formation ive got going at the moment?

Don´t know how much of an tactician I am. As I see it you defend way too deep, you are basically standing on the goalline. My philosophy is that the further your opponent is from your goal the better. I would put the defenders and defensive midfielders mentality at 5, forward-going midfielders at 8 and striker at 11. Creative freedom at 5/5/10, and only let the forward-going midfielders run the ball.
