Players in wide midfield positions mainly stay out near the left-hand or right-hand touchlines – i.e. the lines at each side of the pitch that delineate the playing area – to provide some attacking width for their side. They are normally quick and good at dribbling with the ball and beating the defenders, and should be able to provide good crosses for the strikers. When their team is not in possession of the ball, they are expected to come infield to give some support to the other midfielders. Wide midfield players are also referred to as wingers.
