it depends on what formation the team is using. a standard formation could consist of 1 goalie, 4 defenders, 4 midfielders, and 2 forwards. however, some teams choose to only use 1 forward and others choose to use 3, just like some teams will have 5 midfielders and 3 defenders. It's really a matter of preference for the individual team and it's skill set.

Forward progress is how far forward the ball got before the defense started pulling the ball carrier backward. It is the position of the ball, not the player.

Depends on which Line-up you are using. But there are mostly 3 on the pitch:)

Depends on the formation, but most popular one is 4-4-2, which means there are 2 forwards. 1 and 3 forwards are also very common
