What exactly is a 'box-to-box' player in football?

Does your team have a box-to-box midfielder on the squad?

You can hear the explanation by clicking on the image 


A box-to-box midfielder is a central midfielder who plays both defensively and attackingly, who runs a lot up and down the pitch. In other words, a box-to-box midfielder is a player with an incredibly high stamina and endurance.

He does a bit of everything: cut off opposition attacks, tackle near his own box, make late runs into the opposition box and carry the ball after receiving it from the back. Since this player covers all areas of the pitch i.e. from his own 18-yard box to the opposition's 18-yard box, he's called a box-to-box player.
