Any opinions on this "closure" team?

I was playing some H2H with my friend and came up playing really well with mexico squad.

They use the 5-2-2-1 formation, which I have never used in FUT.

I thought "why not?" and this is what I could build with my 80k budget.

Any opinions? Any changes recommended?

Thanks!

    I have never used a 5 atb as it weakens your midfield if you like to dominate possession. Saying that, your team doesn't look bad and you maybe able to keep the ball better if you set Reus and Bellerabi to come back on defence.

    Yeah, that's exactly why I went with two good "all around" midfielders with strong defensive capabilities. I'm used to playin 41212 and 4231 mostly, so having only two players in the midfield really scares me haha

    IF Junuzovic instead of Lahm in that formation imo, both midfielders need to be able to shoot

    Don't really see how. It's a realistic formation.

    Mexico utilizes it well irl. Most people just hate seeing 5atb because people use to park the bus, while Mexico is actually pretty attacking irl with it.

    Personally I would change lahm for an all rounder like Gundogan, other than that looks like a tough team to beat.

    Thanks for the notes. I really didn't meant to be creative or nothing like that. I've been creative all year long and just wanted to get a strong team in a new formation to be able to close the year (in fifa) doing something new.

    I've had teams with slimani, dzyuba, tons of hybrids and so on, but neve really touched any of these guys or this formation.

    Thanks for that! I was a little unsure about lahm to be honest.

    I'm gonna take a look at that IF guy Junuzovic, looks really good!

    I've used gundongan already and really didn't like him. Thanks for the note though!
