We consider three cases here.

2. particular midfield plays defender

3. particular midfield not playing

Required number of ways ways.

Personal Comments:

Students can solve (ii) by consider two cases, i.e., midfield bother is in team while attacker brother is not and midfield bother is not team while attacker brother i. (iii), I was a bit lazy to type it out to many times so I simply factorise everything, knowing that the number of ways to choose goalkeeper and attackers are the same.
