Should the captain of England also be captain of his club.?

Recommended Posts

So today I was thinking about the international scene and how currently Harry Kane is captain of England but not of his club. 

My question is should the England captain need to be captain of his club first before becoming England captain.?

It doesn't matter, it's how he leads the nation team that does.

I am sure Tottenham fans see Harry Kane as being a leader on the pitch, so club football filled with many stars is harder to get that armband. He will one day I am sure.

No, just because you're a captain of your country does not make you entitled to captain your club. In comparison you've got players like Raheem Sterling playing with Alli, Dier, Lingard, Rashford etc playing for his country but then you've got De Bruyne, Sane, Kompany, Otamendi, David Silva playing for his club. I know Sterling isn't a captain but theres different quality of players and I think quality of player has a lot to do with it.

i dont see why it makes a difference because the way i see it is whoever leads england best should be the captain. harry kane does this very well, he fights for everything and has a good relationship with the players. why not?

It doesn't matter.

Tony Adams, John Terry and Alan Shearer are all players who lead club and country. Are they any different than Harry Kane? No. I believe he's got a lot of fire to win games, his emotion and passion has been a shinning light with the setup Gareth Southgate has got going. There's very few England players I feel could be a good captain, yet in Kane I think he does it exceptionally well.

Besides he does sometimes captain Spurs, and he has in the past.

He will in the future too.
