Neuro cranial nerves origins from the brain stem

For those of you who are interested in soccer you must know that the most common plan is to have the team arranged in 4-4-2.
This 4-4-2 can really work for the cranial nerves and from which part of the brain stem they arise.
III and IV from the midbrain
V, VI, VII, VIII from the pons
IX, X, XI,XII from the medulla
