A full team on the field is 11 players, but this number can be reduced at any time by injuries or ejections, and at the start of the game by failures to appear.

A team can start a game with as few as 7 players, and can continue a game until its numbers fall to the minimum for the competition it is playing in (which can be any number, but FIFA recommends this be no less than 7).
