keeper sweeper left defence right defence stopper outside mid (right & left) center mid outside forward (right & left) center forward that's not really that specific but their kind of the names i use Depends on what formation you are using. typically it'd be a 4-4-2, with: 1 goalkeeper 1 right fullback, 1 left full back 2 central defenders or centrebacks 1 right midfielder and 1 left midfielder, also called left and right wingers 2 forwards, also called strikers Other variations include the sweeper - in place of a centreback, wing backs in place of fullbacks (wing backs are typically used when you have a 3-5-2 formation, with 3 centrebacks)

In the old days, the shirts were numbered according to their Positions: Keeper 1, Defenders 2,3,4,5, Midfielders, 5,6,7,8,9 and Strikers usually 9, 10, 11 but this has all changed in modern times with modern numbering and doesn't correlate to a field position any more. The other thing that has changed is the evolution of tactics and arrangement of your team. (4-4-2 or 4-3-3 or even 3-5-2)
