In FIFA 23, one of the essential positions is right-back (RB). The players who are assigned this position play as full-back defenders. They play on the front-right of the goalkeeper and are the last line of defense before the goalkeeper. However, their defense strategy is highly reactive, and they can position themselves around according to the situation.
Most players placed at RB are right-footed and have high defensive stats and high stamina to keep up with the enemy strikers. Just by gauging these abilities, you can judge which players are well-suited to play on RB.
