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.
