  Midfielder - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In football (soccer), a midfielder is a player whose position of play is midway between the attacking strikers and the defenders.
Midfielders typically exhaust the most energy during a match due to the distance they cover on a pitch, as at times they can be called back into defense or required to attack with the strikers.
The attacking midfielder is an influential 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 a defence-splitting pass for the strikers.

Alternatively, it is possible for both center midfielders to make check runs toward the ball, at different angles, or for one to check to the ball and one to provide support for the outside midfielder.
After turning, the wing midfielder in a 4-3-3 sees a forward straight ahead along the wing, one in the center working back from the penalty spot, and a forward wide on the other side of the field.
In the 4-4-2, a wall pass with the center midfielder, or a ping off one of the two strikers checking back from the penalty area, both can be used to play the wing midfielder into space in front of the 18 a little more easily than with a 4-3-3.
