Just some info on this set, Milan Ivanovic was an important part of the Aussie squad during the '90s. He was a very decent passer, delivering precise through balls to attackers. That said, he was far from excellent when the matter was defending or positioning.

E.g., in the first game vs the Solomon Islands ('97 WC qualifiers), the solomons had about 7 or 8 easy counter attack opportunities, most of which happening because of Ivanovic's lack of tactical discipline, overlapping too often, and not being very def-aware while slotting in between the 2 CBs. He was not particularly good with tackling or 1-on-1 defending, and even though being a "big guy", he wasn't an aerial threat.

I believe this set could suit him for 1993 as well, but for now I'll keep it as a 94-97 set.

Then he isn't even a green DEF/TW player.

He should also have P06 - Pinpoint Pass.

Thanks, Capo. Updated. (DEF 76 --> 74 | TW 79 --> 73)

P.S. After analysing Ivanovic's style of play, I find it quite clear why Venables chose to deploy Steve Horvat as the CWP for both games against Iran, as Horvat was less aggressive with his overlapping and could defend much better.
