In football, a team has 11 PLAYERS , 1 goalkeeper and 10 other players, consisting of defensive players (defender), midfielders and attackers ( Forward ), depending on the tactical system used. Those positions indicate the role and playing area of that position.

At first, there will be only forward positions, halfbacks and thrice quarterbacks. The first period was named like this because It was during the 19th century that the 2–3–5 system was widely popular. The defense will have full-backs known as left-back and right-back. The midfield will have a left-half. Center half and right half And in the offensive line will be outside left, inside left, center striker, inside right and outside right. After that, the format of the system evolved to include many position names. For example, in the early 1970s, the term "half-back" was replaced by the term "midfielder", referring to the position played in midfield both in the middle of the field and on the flanks. The central midfielder has further evolved into an attacking midfielder and a defensive midfielder.

in modern games Positions in football are strictly defined like rugby or American football. Even so, most players tend to play in the same position throughout their careers. Because each position uses different skills and physical abilities. But there are some footballers who can play in multiple positions. which is called "Versatile Player" and today we will come to know details about the 2022 AFF Championship program.

The 2022 AFF Championship (officially AFF Mitsubishi Electric Cup 2022 due to sponsorship reasons) was the 14th edition of the AFF Championship, the football championship of nations affiliated to the ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) and was the 1st edition under the name AFF Mitsubishi Electric Cup.

The final tournament ran from 20 December 2022 to 16 January 2023.

Thailand were the defending champions, and won the tournament by a 3–2 aggregate score in the two-legged final against Vietnam to secure their seventh title.



The AFF Mitsubishi Electric Cup 2022 followed the 2018 format, a change from the 2020 format with a centralised venue due to the COVID-19 pandemic in Southeast Asia.

In the current format, the nine highest-ranked teams automatically qualifed with the 10th and 11th ranked teams playing in a two-legged qualifier. The 10 teams were split in two groups of five and play a round-robin system, with each team playing two home and two away fixtures.Away goals rule was applied, but not in extra-time.

A draw was made to determine where the teams play while the format of the knockout round remained unchanged.



Nine teams automatically qualified to the AFF Championship final tournament; they were separated into their respective pots based on their performance in the last two editions.

Brunei and Timor-Leste, the two lowest-ranked teams, played a two-legged tie to determine the 10th and final qualifier in November 2022, with Brunei hosting both legs due to Timor-Leste lacking a FIFA-standard venue. Brunei secured qualification, and their second appearance in the tournament after 26 years, by defeating Timor-Leste 6–3 on aggregrate.

Australia, a member since 2013, still decided not to debut at the tournament.

In the tournament, a player will be suspended for the subsequent match in the competition for either getting red card or accumulating two yellow cards in two different matches.

On 3 January 2023, AFF confirmed that Azam Azmi would be suspended for two matches, and would be absent against Singapore and the semi-finals first leg against Thailand.


Incidents and controversies

The Group B match between Malaysia and Vietnam was marred by controversy, when Japanese referee Ryuji Sato who officiated the match gave a sudden controversial decision to award a penalty to Vietnam following a clash between Malaysian Azam Azmi and Vietnamese Đoàn Văn Hậu outside the penalty box which saw Azam being sent off, although a similar foul made by Văn Hậu towards Azam was ignored by the same referee. A complaint was made by the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) towards the ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) regarding the "perceived biasedness of Sato's officiating conduct" since a similar incident had also occurred before in another Malaysia-Vietnam encounter during 2022 FIFA World Cup qualification held in the United Arab Emirates. Through the letter, FAM requested for Sato to never be refereeing any matches involving Malaysia in the future.[38] Nevertheless, earlier before the controversial decision was made, Sato announced that 2022 would be the last year of his refereeing career when he announced his retirement by the end of the year. On 3 January 2023, AFF responded to FAM's letter by giving Azam a two-match ban, where he would miss Malaysia's last group stage match against Singapore and the semi-final first leg against Thailand. Azam also needed to pay a fine of US$1,000 that had to be settled in 30 days. The decisions were not appealable
