If two persons are standing, they can stand "face to face", "back to back" and even "shoulder to shoulder".

What do we call to that standing style if two person are standing close in a line facing opposite direction?

Whether in line or not, the two parties are not facing the same direction. Therefore, the parties would be either facing one another, or perhaps standing at an angle to one another. Even though not mathematically correct I have heard the term, "standing at 45 degree angles" even though technically the two are at about 90 degrees if kind of shoulder to shoulder.

Sholder to sholder opposite direction, cannot think to something shorter.

Can we say "Stand abreast right to right" or "Stand abreast left to left"?

Abreast is side by side, shoulder to shoulder if they are close enough.

I can't see when you would ever want to describe people right next to each other facing in opposite directions. It is not something that naturally occurs. Think

But wouldn't that mean they were standing back-to-back, though - a meaning salesh said he was familiar with?

In the game "Kho-kho" the catching team has to sit like this in a line.
Edited
The more about this game you will see here. The picture is also given how the catchers need to sit.
