Hi,

I'm kinda confused, who is the captain of Portugal at the moment? Is it still Jorge Costa? or is it Luis Figo???
Who should be captain?
I think Figo should

Hello Abominus

The captain of Portugal is Fernando Couto, the Lazio defense man.

Although not the best player in Portugal, he has a lot of leadership qualities.

He certainly does. He has a quieter presence, prefers to lead through actions and does his talking on the pitch.

I do believe whatever advice he does give to players, he prefers to do it on an individual basis in private as opposed to a group setting.

Jorge Costa has retired from the international scene anyway. Do you think they will keep Couto as the cpt for Euro?

i hope they dont even keep couto as a cb :rolleyes:

i mean, we have far better central defenders currently (namely ricardo carvalho) and i dont see why we are still playing couto:rolleyes:
he was great yes...long ago! nowadays he doesnt even play on a regular basis for his team, and we have younger, faster, more mature (yes younger but with a far more civilised behaviour on the field) and gifted players for cb position

as for him being captain,...i dont understand howcome a player that loses his head so often on the pitch can be our captain :rolleyes:
