Football is the most watched sport worldwide. This is because of the excitement the game comes with. The dribbles, the nutmegs, the step overs and above all the fantastic goals. I can't stop watching the game at all. In every football team, there is always someone among the players who leads the team. He is called the captain. The captain is supposed to be a good player with good leadership qualities in order to lead the team to success. He should also be of good moral standard and commands a lot of respect from the teammates.
It it often difficult when it comes to selecting a team's captain because there are many players with leadership qualities in that team. But no matter what a captain would definitely be selected. Every country has a senior national team which represents the country in major tournaments. In each national team, there's always a captain and a deputy captain. So let's see some of the national teams in Africa and their captains.
