ଛାଞ୍ଚ:Football squad player/doc



This template is used to display a football (soccer) player squad in a standard format.


Most squads are split into two vertical columns. For these, you can use the {{Football squad start}}, {{Football squad mid}} and {{Football squad end}} templates to help with the layouting, and then use this template repeatedly within them:

{{Football squad start}}
<!-- For help using the below template, please see [[Template talk:Football squad player]] -->
{{Football squad player|no=#SHIRT_NUMBER|nat=#NATIONALITY|pos=#POS_OR_ROLE|name=#PLAYER_NAME}}
{{Football squad player|no=#SHIRT_NUMBER|nat=#NATIONALITY|pos=#POS_OR_ROLE|name=#PLAYER_NAME|other=#OTHER_RELATED_INFO}}
{{Football squad mid}}
{{Football squad player|no=11|nat=ITA|pos=FW|name=[[Gioacchini Simone]]}}
{{Football squad end}}

Alternatively, if you just want a single column, you can use {{football squad blank column}} to fill in a blank right hand column.

{{football squad start}}
{{Football squad player|no=#SHIRT_NUMBER|nat=#NATIONALITY|pos=#POS_OR_ROLE|name=#PLAYER_NAME}}
{{football squad blank column}}
{{Football squad end}}

Alternative template names[ସମ୍ପାଦନା]

In order to make easier the work of writing new squads, some alternative, shorter, names has been designed. So, you may now use {{Fs start}}, {{Fs mid}}, {{Fs player}}, {{Fs end}} and {{Fs blank column}} as alternative templates, using the same equivalent syntax of the other ones.


  • no: The shirt number for the player, if they have one. If the player's number is not known, or unassigned, then you can use the character instead.
  • nat: The player's nationality. Use the name of the country, or its 3-letter IOC country code, rather than an adjective (e.g. "Spain" instead of "Spanish"). This is for the country that the player represents in international football (regardless of nationality of birth or citizenship, or non-FIFA sporting nationalities the player may use in other contexts). If this template is used in a non-FIFA context, then some other nationality might apply; however, this parameter is never for indication of birthplace as such, which has nothing to do with football.
  • natvar: If the relevant flag of the country is other that its current one, e.g. |natvar=1931. (see Template:Flagicon/doc for how to look up the available flag options for each country.)
  • pos: The position in which the player plays. You can use any of the four options below:
    1. GK for Goalkeeper;
    2. DF for Defender;
    3. MF for Midfielder;
    4. FW for Striker or Forward;
  • name: The player's name.
  • other: This is an optional parameter. You can add any related info to this parameter, like specifying captain, vice-captain, whether the player is on loan, etc. It will show additional info in the brackets after the player name. You do not have to specify it if neither applies.


For example, the following code:

{{Football squad start}}
{{football squad player | no=1  | nat=Spain      | pos=GK | name=[[Iker Casillas]]}}
{{football squad player | no=3  | nat=ESP        | pos=DF | name=[[Gerard Pique]]}}
{{football squad player | no=9  | nat=Singapore  | pos=FW | name=[[Aleksandar Đurić]] | other=team captain}}
{{football squad player | no=10 | nat=NED| pos=FW | name=[[Robin Van Persie]]}}
{{football squad mid}}
{{football squad player | no=13 | nat=South Korea| pos=MF | name=[[Park Ji-sung]]}}
{{football squad player | no=25 | nat=ENG  | pos=GK | name=[[Joe Hart]]}}
{{football squad player | no=1  | nat=Spain  | natvar=1931 | pos=GK | name=[[Ricardo Zamora]]}}
{{football squad player | no=   | nat=HUN  | natvar=1949 | pos=FW | name=[[Ferenc Puskas]]}}
 {{football squad player | no=42 | nat=     | natvar=     | pos=FW | name=[[Arthur Dent]]}}
{{football squad end}}
