In soccer game eleven players of a team are arranged in different positions in the field of play with specific responsibilities. During game the players use different basic soccer skills according to the need of the situation. In modern times the concept of ‘Total Football’ has been more emphasized than the concept of traditional football. Present study was planned to analysed the performance of different groups of positional soccer players in basic soccer skills. One hundred twenty Inter-University level soccer players (Goal Keepers -25, Defenders -39, Mid-fielders – 26, and Forwards – 30) were selected as subjects as per their availability. Passing, dribbling and kicking were selected as the basic soccer skills. The performance of different groups of subjects for the selected soccer skills was measured using standard tests. Results indicated that the performance of the groups of Goal Keepers was significantly lower than all other groups of positional soccer players. There was no significant difference among the groups in the performances of other soccer skills.
