Skills

Central defenders are the heart of your defense and obviously Defending is their most prominent skill. Playmaking is also beneficial, and their Passing skill really makes a difference when counter-attacking.

Wing skill is used only when playin towards wing, otherwise it's useless.

Central defender towards wing

Towards left.pngCDTW will contribute with some Wing skill to the respective wing attack. Also, he contributes more to wing defence and less to the central defence (this is purely based on his Defending).
