Definition of complete wing back:
The complete wing back loves to attack, and whilst he is capable of occupying his defensive duties, his natural inclination is to affect the game in the opposition’s defensive third by roaming from his position.
With a support duty, the complete wing back will look to combine his attacking instincts with some defensive responsibilities in an effort to provide balance to the team.
With an attack duty, the complete wing-back will be a little more adventurous in his attacking exploits as he seeks to primarily impact the game in the opposition’s half of the pitch.
Stamina, pace, acceleration, work rate, and dribbling are the most important stats to look for in a complete wing-back. They are pretty offensive backs. Because of that, you need to have three defenders in the middle to cover for them. Or two defenders and one defensive midfielder. It is up to you.
Complete wing back preferred traits:
- Gets forward whenever possible.
- Runs with ball down right / left.
- Brings ball out of defence.
- Moves into channels.
- Plays one-twos.
- Hugs line.
