A soccer left wing can be a midfielder, a forward or both depending on the team's formation. Generally, the term "left wing" refers to any offensive player who plays on the left side of the field. Because the term is so general, more specific names are typically used. For example, a midfielder is called the left midfielder or left halfback if the team plays with three midfielders. If the team uses a formation that includes four midfielders, then that player is referred to as either the left-outside midfielder or left-outside halfback. When referring to a forward, the player is called either the left forward or left striker.
