The 2-7-1 (also known as the Montgomery Formation) is a very midfield-heavy formation, using at least 5 inner midfielders. It is usually undesirable for regular club teams because fielding more than three inner midfielders will cause a loss of training. National teams sometimes use this formation to gain a superior midfield, but it will certainly cause confusion as it is impossible to gain Formation Experience in this formation.

Perhaps the best-known use of this formation was in Canada's match against Sweden in the final of WC III. Canada lost 4-0 on that day, but were only down 1-0 at the half.
