Wing Back

The wing-back is a player that sits between the midfield and defensive lines on the outsides. Because he/she is usually without support in the wings, the wing-backs must provide width on the attack, and mark the opposition wide threat on defense. The wing-back can even provide extra pressure on the opposition’s wide players to win possession of the ball quickly.

Synonyms:
flying full-back
