You must build your team in another set-up and switch in-game to get the most out of this formation.

These FIFA 23 541 tactics will create an overload in the attack. Your LM and RM cutting inside will allow your wingbacks to push forward.

Meanwhile, your most attacking CM will push up the pitch to help your lone striker. We also recommend that at least one of your wingbacks is not a defender but instead a winger, as this will improve your chances of winning.

Players such as FUT Fantasy Al-Owairan are commonly used in this position. However, you can use any winger who is quick, agile, and has excellent shooting.

Additionally, one of your CBs will need to be a full-back who can offer a ton of pace and strength to help cover the attacking wingback.

Here is an example of the types of players that work well in this formation:
