Hi!All In sports, numbers tell the names of the players to scorers or other players, and sometimes show their position. In soccer, an important number is No. 10. The No. 10 jersey is traditionally worn by the best player on a team, usually a striker. Goalkeepers generally wear the No. 1 shirt. Almost every team follows the rule. Defenders often wear numbers between 2 and 6. Midfielders wear numbers 4,6,7,8 and 11. Strikers usually wear 9 and 10.
