A midfielder is an association football position. Midfielders are generally positioned on the field between their team's defenders and forwards. Some midfielders play a disciplined defensive role, breaking up attacks, and are otherwise known as defensive midfielders. Others blur the boundaries, being more mobile and efficient in passing: they are commonly referred to as deep-lying midfielders, play-makers, box-to-box, or holding midfielders. The number of midfielders on a team and their assigned roles depends on the team's formation; the collective group of these players on the field is sometimes referred to as the midfield.

Midfielders are the players who typically travel the greatest distance during a match. Because midfielders arguably have the most possession during a game they are among the fittest players on the pitch.

INFORMAZIONI Ciccio Longoni ha giocato prevalentemente da esterno sinistro, ma a volte ha operato anche a destra. Longoni era un giocatore piccolo e tarchiato, molto veloce e astuto ma tecnicamente non di alto livello. Spesso irresistibile con buon passo e guizzi improvvisi, era molto pericoloso. Ciccio aveva tirato forte anche da due piedi, sapeva anche mandare un bel cross dalla fascia. Longoni, cresciuto nel Lecco, squadra di calcio della loro città, fu acquistato dal Milan a soli 17 anni, società nella quale però non ebbe modo di brillare. La sua esplosione è avvenuta con il trasferimento dell'Atalanta, che ha gareggiato con la firma di quasi 200 partite 38 gol, riuscendo a guadagnarsi una convocazione, aumenta di ragazzi e ha esordito con il Milan in Serie A a 19 anni ma era troppo minuto per giocarci. il famoso Gre-No-Li ed è stato inviato alla provincia. Fu così che in 20 anni arriva l'Atalanta e vi resta 7 anni prima di trasferirsi alla Lazio. Ha giocato una partita in Nazionale al fianco di Boniperti, Muccinelli e Montuori. La partita in questione era quella del 9 dicembre 1956 contro l'Austria, nella quale realizzò due gol nella vittoria (2-1), anche se questo exploit non fu mai convocato in Nazionale maggiore. La partita in questione era quella del 9 dicembre , 1956 contro l'Austria, in cui ha segnato due gol nella vittoria nonostante questo exploit non è mai stato chiamato nella nazionale maggiore. Dopo sette stagioni con la giacca dei neroazzurri fu ceduto alla Lazio, successivamente si trasferì al Vis Pesaro nella prima serie, poi in C, concludendo la carriera in serie B tra le fila del Lecco. Successivamente è stato allenatore in serie C e serie D, allenandosi tra gli altri su Lecco, Crotone, Giulianova e Marsala. Angelo Longoni muore nel 1993.

  • In modern football, the terms winger or wide player refer to a non-defender who plays on the left or right sides of the pitch. These terms can apply to left or right midfielders, left or right attacking midfielders, or left or right forwards. Left or right-sided defenders such as wing-backs or full-backs are generally not called wingers. In the 2−3−5 formation popular in the late 19th century wingers remained mostly near the touchlines of the pitch, and were expected to cross the ball for the team's inside and centre forwards. Traditionally, wingers were purely attacking players and were not expected to track back and defend. This began to change in the 1960s. In the 1966 World Cup, England manager Alf Ramsey did not select wingers from the quarter-final onwards. This team was known as the "Wingless Wonders" and led to the modern 4–4–2 formation. This has led to most modern wide players having a more demanding role in the sense that they are expected to provide defensive cover for their full-backs and track back to repossess the ball, as well as provide skillful crosses for centre forwards and strikers. Some forwards are able to operate as wingers behind a lone striker. In a three-man midfield, specialist wingers are sometimes deployed down the flanks alongside the central midfielder or playmaker. Even more demanding is the role of wing-back, where the wide player is expected to provide both defence and attack. As the role of winger can be classed as a forward or a midfielder, this role instead blurs the divide between defender and midfielder. Italian manager Antonio Conte has been known to use wide midfielders or wingers who act as wing-backs in his trademark 3–5–2 and 3–4–3 formations, for example; these players are expected both to push up and provide width in attack as well as track back and assist their team defensively. On occasion, the role of a winger can also be occupied by a different type of player. For example, certain managers have been known to use a "wide target man" on the wing, namely a large and physical player who usually plays as a centre-forward, and who will attempt to win aerial challenges and hold up the ball on the flank, or drag full-backs out of position; Romelu Lukaku, for example, has been used in this role on occasion. Another example is Mario Mandžukić under manager Massimiliano Allegri at Juventus during the 2016–17 season; normally a striker, he was instead used on the left flank, and was required to win aerial duels, hold up the ball, and create space, as well as being tasked with pressing opposing players. Today, a winger is usually an attacking midfielder who is stationed in a wide position near the touchlines. Wingers such as Stanley Matthews or Jimmy Johnstone used to be classified as outside forwards in traditional W-shaped formations, and were formally known as "Outside Right" or "Outside Left," but as tactics evolved through the last 40 years, wingers have dropped to deeper field positions and are now usually classified as part of the midfield, usually in 4–4–2 or 4–5–1 formations (but while the team is on the attack, they tend to resemble 4–2–4/2–4–4 and 4–3–3 formations respectively). The responsibilities of the winger include: * Providing a "wide presence" as a passing option on the flank. * To beat the opposing full-back either with skill or with speed. * To read passes from the midfield that give them a clear crossing opportunity, when going wide, or that give them a clear scoring opportunity, when cutting inside towards goal. * To double up on the opposition winger, particularly when he or she is being "double-marked" by both the team's full back and winger. The prototypical winger is fast, tricky and enjoys 'hugging' the touchline, that is, running downfield close to the touchline and delivering crosses. However, players with different attributes can thrive on the wing as well. Some wingers prefer to cut infield (as opposed to staying wide) and pose a threat as playmakers by playing diagonal passes to forwards or taking a shot at goal. Even players who are not considered quick, have been successfully fielded as wingers at club and international level for their ability to create play from the flank. Occasionally wingers are given a free role to roam across the front line and are relieved of defensive responsibilities. The typical abilities of wingers include: * Technical skill to beat a full-back in a one-to-one situation. * Pace, to beat the full-back one-on-one. * Crossing ability when out wide. * Good off-the-ball ability when reading a pass from the midfield or from fellow attackers. * Good passing ability and composure, to retain possession while in opposition territory. * The modern winger should also be comfortable on either wing so as to adapt to quick tactical changes required by the coach. Although wingers are a familiar part of football, the use of wingers is by no means universal. There are many successful football teams who operate without wingers. A famous example is Carlo Ancelotti's late 2000s Milan, who typically play in a narrow midfield diamond formation or in a Christmas tree formation (4–3–2–1), relying on full-backs to provide the necessary width down the wings.
