What are the various positions in a football team? What's the best team formation based on your tactics?
Playing football is great fun. Even better is to be able to play in the position where you can best express your particular abilities! A lot of players start playing in one position and transition into others over the years. Do you know which position is best for you?
As you know, a football team consists of 11 players. Each player wears a number on their back to identify them. But did you know that each of these numbers corresponds to a particular position on the pitch? Here they are:
Number 1: the goalkeeper
Numbers 2 and 3: full-backs
Numbers 4 and 5: The "centre-back" and "sweeper"
Numbers 6 and 7: defensive midfielders
Numbers 8 and 10: attacking midfielders
Number 11: the second striker
Number 9: the centre-forward
Numbers 12, 13 and 14: the substitutes
How about you? Which position do you or would you like to play? Which do you think is the hardest position to play?
If I were to start talking about 4-4-2 or 4-3-3 or even 4-2-3-1 or 5-3-2, would it all sound like jibberish? These are just some of the many different possible team formations, which are decided by the manager based on the tactics for a particular match.
