First, draft your squad. Counter Attack gives you 46 players, each with a unique set of skills. It's up to you as the manager to decide where you will use each player. Next, line up your team and kick off for a 90 minute showdown where you'll be playing every move on the pitch to take your team to glory.
Managers decide when and where to pass, tackle, dribble and shoot. There are moments when players duel for the ball, for example in a tackle. In those duels, take the attacker's dribbling attribute and add a dice roll. Compare this score to the defender's tackling score and dice roll. The winner of the duel comes away with the ball. Watch the video below to get a good idea of all aspects of the game!
