Russell Wilson and Max Unger

Center midfielders are often the heart and soul of the team, and these two are no exception.

They are relied on to control the tempo of the game, and make safe passes to get the ball to the right attackers.

Being a natural QB, Wilson fits the mold for a center mid, with his wonderful distribution and vision, paired with his superb placement of the ball; he would make any team happy to have in the middle of the field.

Unger makes the cut for his leadership and vision; in American football, his job is often to call out defensive players and schemes he sees, so in football it would be the same, he would be able to dissect the field of play and get the ball to the right payer.
