Because the Olympics only allow 2 professional soccer players on the team.
In Total, eleven players can play on a soccer (football) field. For Example the basic 4-4-2 Formation in addition of the goalee.
11 players start for a soccer team. 2 teams of 11 players play against each other in a match so 22 players are on the pitch are on the pitch -- 3 substitutes are allowed in competitive matches
There are 11 soccer players on the field at all times in soccer plus the subs in the bench. There is one goalie and there is forwards mid-fielders and defense. They play in certain formations. A common formation in soccer is a 4-4-2 or the double diamond. This means there are 4 defenders, 4 mid-fielders, and 2 forwards. That is 10 players. Count the goalie and that is 11.
2 yrs on the bench/average 10-22 years as a starter if they are good enough
Soccer players who play for major teams like Real Madrid or Manchester United can get from either 2 million dollars a year to 16 million dollars a year. Either way, they make a lot of money.
