10 Best Captains In Soccer History

Days ago, I was in a chat with a friend discussing the best captains in football to have ever played the games. We began the conversation from the early 80s to 20s football, and we both had different opinions. Every football club has a team captain, and a vice-captain and these are players that are selected to represent their teams on the pitch and perhaps during press conferences.

However, the best captains shouldn't only possess leadership skills, but how well they have contributed to their team's success. With that being said, here are the Top 10 Best Captains In Soccer History; READ: What Is The Highest-Scoring Game In Foo...

Fitness Requirements In Football

One of the most crucial components of football success is physical conditioning. A skilled player will go a long way in the sport, but they won't be a complete player if they lack the fitness component of their game. The sport of football calls for both aerobic and anaerobic fitness. Football players with the best aerobic fitness also have the best anaerobic fitness, running, speed, and agility. However, it is possible to notice that there are some trends that take place. For instance, in comparison to the first half of games, footballers typically cover less ground and exert less effort in the second half. This occurs as a result of player tiredness. In conclusion, a player would perform better if they were fitter. Therefore, general fitness would improve a player's effectiveness ...
