Keep in mind that the soccer positions you assign your players to, and how your players move on the field, and the roles they will play on the field will be based on factors such as:

  1. The ability, speed and stamina of individual players
  2. The opponent you are playing
  3. Your Style of Play (do you Push Up on attack or Defend Deep, and to what extent you play a Possession Style/controlled passing style of play)
