How to break down a team with 11 men behind the ball?

How do you play against a team that is defending with all 11 players behind the ball and in the circle the whole game? (a bit frustrating)

There are many ways...

If the opposition have a good press, then there are some techniques to break it down... e.g.

Play the ball around fast and over some distances. If you are able to, then watch the Australian Mens team in the World Cup...they move the ball fast and tire their opposition. Gaps appear in a tired defence.

Try and create gaps with your own players creating channels

Try some aerials into space for your players to run on to...
