playing them both is redundant, and leaves the backline unprotected and without pace in the midfield. Hopefully bosque finally ends this hyper fetishization of midfielders, Costa is useless in this formation with them. Spain need to bring in some width, open the midfield, and not play such a suicidal high line.
it's probably hard not to go overboard with playing midfielders when you have such crazy talent at the position like he does
i hate seeing players of javi martinez's caliber riding the bench because there's nowhere to play them
