- (idiomatic) Any strategy devised to reach a given objective.

- Southgate's decision to select two defensively-minded midfield men once more in Declan Rice and Kalvin Phillips was another strong indicator that this will be his preferred formation at the Euros this summer.
It is a game plan which has looked stodgy on occasions, particularly in two Uefa Nations League games against Denmark, a goalless draw in Copenhagen and a defeat at Wembley, and leaves Southgate open to accusations of over-caution.
