Short for Striker. A striker (ST) is a forward whose primary responsibility is to attack and score goals. A striker, like a CF player, is normally positioned in the centre of the attacking line, but they can peel off opposing defenders and sprint into space via the defender's blind side to receive the ball and score.

Strikers must be quick, have strong ball control, and be able to dribble the ball properly. They also needed to score goals and finish at a high rate.
