Soccer Position numbers explained!

Ever hear the commentators while watching a soccer game on TV refer to a player as "He's a natural #8 but he's playing more as a #10 today" and wonder - what are they talking about?

This article explains it!

Knowing that a #7 is responsible for a certain place and role on a field, your players can more easily transfer from one team to the next, and one coach from the next, because the terminology remains constant.
