Resolved Question: Franz Beckenbauer's
How did Beckebauer's sweeper role in Germany's defence work? The German team played a back 3 with Beckenbauer in behind as a sort of extra 1 man defensive line. I used to play the same role for my local 7-a-side team, but obviously we didn't play the offside rule, so how did Beckenbauer's position fit into an 11-a-side formation; and how did they keep their defensive offside trap? And could this 1-3-3-3 formation work in the mordern game?
