the job of centre midfielder in football (soccer) direct the other players in the job of keeping the ball in the attacking 3rd. of the field. When need come back to defence to move the ball out of the defensive 3rd. This not all the centre midfieder does but it is a start.

No. A quarterback in association football (soccer) is what the center attacking midfielder is sometimes referred to as (depending on the formation, which is usually 4-2-3-1 in professional soccer). The quarterbacks in both association and American football have similar jobs and positions because they are both set behind the striker and center respectively and both make the most plays for the team.

Well, there is no such thing as a center backer but there is a center. A center is a midfielder also known as the people who are running around the whole field during the game.

Centre midfield is where the midfielder generally plays up the centre of the pitch. The midfielder being a player who links defence and attack and has a moderately free role.

Not necessarily, depends on the player really. There all different. Suarez is a world class support striker but hes not a midfielder. Where as someone like Sneijder can play a "support striker role and is a midfielder. A straight answer would be no, but they do exist.
