What are the conventional shirt numbers in Latin football? I'm referring to the no. 10 being the playmaker, no. 4 being the DM, etc. Is the formation below correct?


------1-------

2---5---6---3

-------4-------

7-------------8

------10------

----9---11---


Feel free to add systems from other schools of football, if they differ.

2 and 3 are normally centre back numbers, 4's are wing backs.

7,9,10

Normally attacking players

Is that in British football? Or are you referring to the formation above?

Found the following in Wikipedia...it refers to the 2-5-3 formation used by Preston in the 19th century, called the first formal formation in football:

# 1 – Goalkeeper
# 02 – Right back
# 03 – Left back
# 04 – Centre back
# 05 – Defensive midfielder
# 06 – Centre back
# 07 – Right winger
# 08 – Centre midfield
# 09 – Centre Forward (usually a target man or strong player)
# 10 – Offensive midfielder (the "Number 10" playmaker)
# 11 – Left winger

So according to that the formation would be:

---1

2-4-6-3

---5----

7--8--11

---10---
----9----

that would be about right. Kas.

In the 4-3-3 that would be something like:

---1

2-5-6-3

--8--4

---10

7--9--11

even if the nº 2 and/or 3 can often be centre backs as well.

nº 4 is traditionally the holding midfielder like Toure Yaya for Barça or Gatusso for Milan. Nº 8 would then be a Xavi or Pirlo kind of player.

in Brazil (in Argentina it's different) it's:

1 - keeper

3 and 4: CB

2: RB

6: LB

5 and 8: DMs

10 and 7: attacking midfielders (10 is the creative playmaker)

9 and 11: strikers, number 11 being usually the second striker. When a striker is by far the most important player in the team, he may wear number 10, like Tevez in Corinthians.

those numbers are not onoly used by Brazilian clubs, but also by the Brazilian national team. Roberto Carlos, for exemple, wore number 3 for Madrid and number 6 when he was playing for Brazil.
