    I was a goalkeeper, so the #1 is always going to be my favorite.

    I wore #11 even though I played left back in HS and even though I somewhat understood the numbering (at the time I knew #1 = goal keeper, #10 = best player, which is NOT true but it so happens the midfielder is usually the best player)

    As an older footballer when I first started the numbers on a football team denoted the position, please note we were only allowed two substitutes usually numbers 12 and 14 (13 is unlucky).
    1 = Goalkeeper.
    2 = Right Fullback.
    3 = Left Fullback.
    4 = Centre Half (Centre Back).
    5 = Centre Half (Centre Back). Or possibly Centre Midfield.
    6 = Centre Half (Centre Back). Or possibly Centre Midfield.
    7 = Right Wing (Right Midfield)
    8 = Centre Midfield.
    9 = Centre Forward.
    10 = Centre Forward.
    11 = Left Wing (Left Midfield).

    Number 11 for me! When I started to play, my team ordered kits with the numbers dictating the size of the shirt. I was easily the smallest on my team until high school, so I wore number 1 playing left wing until I was about 10 and started playing on more competitive club teams where they gave me number 11 and its been that way ever since.

    I played number 6 and 8 in middle school and 7 twice and 6 agian in high school got one more year to go. Kinda want seven again though or maybe try 9. But you know..the number that you wear on your jersey doesnt really matter. Its all about the effort and dedication you put into every practice and game ^^

    may I point out that number 10 is not always given to the best player but the attacking play maker of the side. many teams would not regard there number 10 as there best player for example Manchester united give their best player the number 7 jersey eg: George Best, Eric Cantona, David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo. or Newcastle they give there best players the number 9 like Alan Shearer, Malcolm Mcdonald or more recently Papiss Cisse.

    I wear number 19 and I play as a forward
    I’m not that good at football and just started it 2 years ago.
    But my friend said that i have potential by looking at the result that I gain during this 2 years. He said, most of the famous winger and striker started their career with number 19 before they go with 9,10 or 11. It symbolize young spirit that ready to go to the next level just like Gotze, Welbeck, Cazorla, Modric, Nasri, Llorente and Messi

    I always wore #33 for basketball, because that’s what some of my favorite players wore. Moving to soccer I knew that 1-11 were worn by starters, so instead of 33 I selected 3 (even though I play left midfield) and have kept it ever since.
