    doubling up

    What does this sentence mean?

    The Americans' attempts to dominate her physically certainly floundered and while their panicked plan of ‘doubling up' succeeded to an extent in the second half, Iwabuchi warned France that the same ploy will not work twice.

    This is an excerpt from an article about a soccer game. Japan beat America, and its next opponent is France.
    I'm not sure of the 'doubling up' plan. What plan is it?

    Thank you in advance.

    Re: doubling up

    Hi-

    I think "doubling up" in this context means having two defensive players from a team keep on a specific player from the opposing team (instead of just having one defensive player on).
