One of the most challenging soccer positions in the modern game, the fullbacks on either side of the centrebacks have a number of defensive and attacking responsibilities. Their role is increasingly important to the success of the team and it’s no longer enough for them to just defend.
There are 11 positions in soccer. These eleven positions include ten outfield players and one goalkeeper. The most common formation of these positions on a soccer field consists of four players in defense, three in midfield, and three forwards. The 11 positions in soccer are: Goalkeeper; Right Full-back (or Wingback) Left Full-back (or Wingback)
Traditionally Assigned Soccer Position Numbers: 2, 3 & 6 The wing-back position is similar to the full-back in that wing-backs play close and along the sidelines of the field.
Numbers like 30 or 40 are basically the U-18 and U-23 players who are close to cracking the first team. The first team typically still has their defenders numbered 2 – 5, mids 6, 7, 8, 10, 11 and the forwards 9, 14, 20. This is very motivating for the younger players wanting to get on the first team.
