Best Answer

The short answer is - you can't. No player on a soccer field has a fixed position in terms of the field of play. Even the goalkeeper, who normally spends most of the time in her/his team's own penalty area, is allowed to go anywhere on the field if s/he wants.

At the start or restart of play, each team is located in their own half of the field but once play is under way each player is free to roam anywhere on the pitch and many do so.

While the playing positions can be broadly split into three areas: defence, midfield and attack, there is a great deal of variation and flexibility on where any particular player or position might be located on the field at any given moment.
