Actually there was an election back in 1999 were the players elected Sensini, Batistuta and Ayala as their captains, since Sensini wasn't in most of the qualifiers Batistuta was the captain, but he missed a lot of the qualifiers, especially in the last leg, and then Ayala was the captain. i believe they are going to vote again in the WC to elect the captain, i would go for Batistuta, eventhough i believe Ayala deserves it mor, and would probably get the armband in the WC.
Although Simeone would be the best captain and motivator I think it would be cool if we won the WC with Batistuta captain and imagine if he finished top scorer............he would retire with the ending he deserves (I think)
Batistuta can be the best palyer in WC history if he wins the WC plus:
1. Scoring his third hatrick in WC finals.
2. Scoring six goals in the finals, means Bati will be all time best scorer with 15 goals in WC history.
