I would like to have your opinion.
How would you explain if a 11 year old footballer who plays as an attacker ..scores goals ...and uses both legs equally well .... is placed lately as a left back??
Thanks

The fullback position is somewhat similar to a forward since both require a lot of speed.
There are many pro fullbacks who started out as attackers in their youth.
If you are still 11 years old, then I wouldn't make too much of it.
It's perfectly normal to switch positions as you get older.

Full backs is very much an underrated position. Over the past few years it has become a more important position as a lot of teams are now playing a 352 formation with bombing full backs.
