Right Midfielder

A Right Midfielder (RM) is a wide midfielder who has a role balanced between attack and defence, similar to that of central midfielders, but a right midfielder is positioned on the right side and closer to the touchlines of the pitch.

Right midfielders are usually right-footed. The roles of a midfielder are the same as a midfielder's, additionally they are usually asked to cross the ball into the opponents' penalty box to make scoring chances for their players.
