This study aims to determine a Tactico-Mental profile of footballers (U20) through measuring their Mental Imagery level according to the play lines variable (Defense, Center, Attack), so identifying the differences of Mental Imagery level among their tactical distribution, for this purpose, we used Causal Comparative Method (Ex-Post Facto Method) on a sample composed of (80) members chosen randomly from the community of Algerian 1st League (2019/2020). And for data collection, we used the Mental Imagery scale after validation. After collecting the results and having treated them statistically, we conclude that there were statistically significant differences (P<0.05) among the three groups in favor of the center tactical line group, so the tactical line has a different impact on the Mental Imagery level of (U20) players during their previous experience years in training and competition. On this basis, the study recommended that it is necessary to set up a large mental skills player’s profile for each tactical playline in football.
