Team instructions
Individual instructions
They are the same as in 4-3-3 tactics. Actually this 4-1-4-1 tactics is created from this attacking 4-3-3.
I just moved MLC and MRC from 4-3-3 tactics into positions of clear attacking wingers: ML and MR. And my 2 forwards (FLC, FRC) were moved  into MLC and MRC positions.

Some tips and hints during match
- if your opponent plays more aggressive, has more possession of the ball, set Closing Down to maximal value;
- if your opponent is very strong and you play away, turn on Counter Attack
- For away game Mentality can be set more Defensive.
- For home match you can increase Tempo and  Mentality. It often gives good result.
- If you need more possession, set the slowest Tempo and Passing Style maximally Short.
