Screen Position

Screen position is the term given to a midfielder who works just in front of the defence.

When defending, the midfielder takes up the screen position in order to stop opponents from passing into their centre forwards.

The role requires the midfielder to be on the move constantly, adjusting his position to block or intercept passes.
