Like most of the sports, team captain is the key link of a football team. Sometimes, they get to know as skippers. He is a team member selecting to be the on-pitch leader of the team. It is frequently one of the older or more experienced members of the squad. Or it is a player that can greatly influence a game. The soccer team captain normally identified by the wearing of an armband.
Liability of a captain
The only official liability of a captain which is specified by the Laws of the Game. It is to participate in coin toss prior to kick-off (for choice of ends) and before a penalty shootout. Contrary to what sometimes said, captains have no special authority under the Laws to challenge a choice by the referee. But, referees may talk to the captain of a side about the side’s general behaviour when needed.
During an award distribution event after playing a tournament such as a cup competition final, the captain typically leads the team up to collect their medals. Any trophy won by a team will be received by the soccer team captain who will also be the first one to hoist it. The captain also normally leads the teams out of the dressing room at the beginning of the match.
Captain normally gives a rallying point for the team
If morale is low, it is the captain who will be looked upon to boost their team’s spirits.
Captains might join the manager in deciding the starting eleven for a certain game. In youth or recreational football, the captain frequently takes on duties, which would, at a higher level, be given to the manager.
So wearing the band, the skipper band, gives the captain of the soccer team quite a number of duties.
Happy reading and playing fantasy cricket!
