02. Bobby Moore – West Ham United – England
Geoff Hurst said about him,“He was not a ranter or a raver or a fist-pumping captain,”. Bobby Moore did not need to be. Moore’s authority on the football pitch or ground was assumed without any need to intro. Many legends of football of modern era and also of his time quoted him as the best ever football player and captain in history.
He was the youngest England captain ever in history who was handed the armband at the age of just 22. Moore had great pressure put upon him when he had to lead English national team. The fans of the country focused their eyes on the performance of their national team captain. They had a lot of expectations on him, and amazingly and remarkably he served more then people’s expectations. The legend Bobby Charlton described Moore as “The Natural Captain,” and Pele declared Moore the greatest opponent he ever faced after England’s 1-0 defeat to Brazil in 1970. His leadership qualities were amazing and one can not forgot him easily. He is second successful and greatest football captain in the history of football.
