MY TOP 10 "CAPTAIN FANTASTIC"

•Franz Beckenbuaer

•Carlos Dunga

•Stephen Keshi

•Hossam Hassan

•Fabio Cannavaro

•Ike Casillas

•Cristiano Ronaldo

It's not about featuring in the World Cup or winning it. It's about being the backbone of the teams of their generation or time. Talking strictly about national teams.

Those who couldn't or didn't win the World Cup....won the tournaments of their continents. They were the reason their teams reached the finals and won the trophy.

They were or are leaders on and off the pitch. They were or are inspirational. When and once they come to the party, their teams excel. They carried or carry their teams on their shoulders.

Their teams were or are built around them. They even played the role of coaches on the pitch. They directed affairs. They were or are talismanic. They conjured up something out of nothing.

They yelled, screamed or shouted out instructions to teammates. They were or are soldiers...in fact, they were or are Field Marshalls. Their presence on the pitch create ambiance of victory just as their absence make their teams struggle.

It doesn't or didn't matter if they were or are goalkeepers, midfielders, defenders or attackers. Their contributions were or are awesome. They are truly CAPTAIN FANTASTIC

•NOTE : Casillas and CR7 are joint 10th
