Team Management menu is composed, among others, of a Squad option. That's where we can change the team's formation.
We use two buttons in the bottom of the screen (< and >) to change the formation. Get familiar with abilities of your men and try to choose a good one. If there are fast midfielders and tall forwarders in your team, it would be a good idea to play on the wings. Footballers who have high accuracy, should be placed in the middle. In that case, use short passes and through balls to get closer to the rival's goal.
Kick Takers option in the Team Management menu allows us to set, who has to perform corners, free kicks and penalties.
Let's start from the top: corners should be performed by these, who have high accuracy. It is also helpful when the left corner is assigned to a player, who prefers right foot and the right corner should be performed by a footballer, who likes left foot.
Free kicks are based on accuracy too, so check who has got a high one. It is written in players' bios.
Penalties can be performed, in principle, by everyone, but it wouldn't be a bad thing if the shooter has high accuracy.
