    I've done the best I can without using anything and have a squad just over 90 and i'm struggling to beat mexico, no chance of me even trying to beat chile brazil or spain. noticed every nation plays a midfield 5 in this prep stage too, with either 4 defenders and 1 up front or 3 with 2 up

    This is the ridiculous thing about this game. You do careful preparation and make sure your team is in top condition for a match and get shafted. Go in with poor condition and/or tactics and the team waltzes it, except when you do it deliberately...
    Any formation or tactics advice given is based purely on experience with my teams...

    I always played with my player condition at just 30% above. I experienced no injuries and manage till stage 8 but unable to beat France. So I guess I am one of the lucky one.

    This is not 100% solid, it simply increases your chances but:
    #1 always play Normal/High Pressure/Counter-Attack/10% bonus/Never use offside
    #2
    vs. Mexico 4-4-2 Diamond, Through the Middle, Short
    vs. Chile 4-2-3-1 Wide, Sides/Long
    vs. Brazil 4-1-3-2 Wide, Sides/Mixed
    vs Spain 4-3-3 Middle/Long

    Doesnt matter if your players all start at 30%, doesnt matter if they are in Yellow positions, just field the best ones you have.

    I struggled a lot in the beggining but Madflo gave that hint about HighPressure and even with players at 10% fit works great. We have people in my asso reaching Spain and beating them at 92-95%. Thats almost 70% handicap. Still its prety pointless to play Spain if you ask me. You basically get the same quality players than beating Brazil and Brazl is much more easy to beat consistently.

    This final is scheduled for the 9th of June.
    According to this schedule, today would be “Announcement Day (No game)”. However, the preparation phase is still running. What’s up?

    Hey everyone,

    We're in the process of scheduling International Cup matches. We'll provide an update on a more specific window on when you can expect to see Groups.

    In the meantime, the Prep Phase is still available if you'd like to make last minute squad changes. Thanks for your patience.
