Wales Recent Form and Tactics

Things have not been pretty for The Dragons this year with very few positive results to count on. Their formation has recently been a pretty consistent 3-5-2 with a brief switch to a 3-4-3 variant included. More often than not though, it is a two-attacker lineup with a five-man midfield.
