Forward (association Football)
Forwards are the players on an association football team who play nearest to the opposing team's goal, and are therefore most responsible for scoring goals. Their advanced position and limited defensive responsibilities mean forwards normally score more goals on behalf of their team than other players. Modern team formations generally include one to three forwards; for example, the common 4–2–3–1 formation includes one forward.[1] Unconventional formations may include more than three forwards, or none.[2][3]Contents1 Centre-forward 2 Striker 3 Second striker 4 Inside forward 5 Outside forward 6 Winger 7 False 9 8 Strike teams and combinations 9 See also 10 ReferencesCentre-forward[edit] The traditional role of a centre-forward is to score the majority of goals on behalf of the team
