A defensive midfielder must be aggressive, intelligent, and tactically disciplined, providing cover in areas where his team is more vulnerable, and constantly harassing the opposing team's attacking players.
An attacking midfielder is often confused with a central midfielder.

 Football (soccer) positions - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Midfielders are players whose position of play is midway between the attacking strikers and the defenders.
Midfielders can be expected to cover many areas of a pitch, as at times they can be called back into defence or required to attack with the strikers.
The attacking midfielder is an important position and requires the player to possess superior technical abilities in terms of passing and most importantly the ability to read the opposing defence in order to deliver defence-splitting passes to the strikers.
