Defenders don’t need to be as fit as midfielders who often need to be the fittest – and therefore the youngest – on the field of play. Attackers can get away with being a little bit slower and older if they’ve got a good eye for goal and are a natural finisher. Whilst midfielders need to move from one box to the other with reasonable rapidity, both strikers and defenders can read the game and react accordingly.
