Best Answer

I assume that by midfielder, you mean the position in soccer. A midfielder usually stays behind the forwards (people who go up and try to score) and ahead of the fullbacks (who stay a little ahead of the goalie to help him/her). My guess is that a attacking midfielder would play the position of a midfielder, but try to score like the forwards.
