Jonathan Wilson: Single-striker formations will be predominant in South Africa

For a long time, the World Cup was where new tactics were uncovered. When Brazil unleashed its 4-2-4 on the world in 1958, for instance, it marked a radical change in the development of the game. As the rest of the world adopted a back four, Brazil leapt ahead, changing to a 4-3-3 to win the 1962 World Cup. Four years later, England won the World Cup with a 4-4-2 formation its manager, Alf Ramsey, had carefully kept hidden until the quarterfinal.
