As a part of the ever ongoing Oxymoron Project research and list making ... this is in regards to World Cup Captions that have won the trophy and therefore been the player that first hoisted the trophy. It is an elite group. I will break it down in regards to men and women separately.
19 men have hoisted the World Cup trophy as captains of their country. No one has hoisted it twice.
I have seen 6 of them play and Dunga later as a coach with Brazil.
Bobby Moore with the Seattle Sounders
Franz Beckenbauer with the Cosmos
Carlos Alberto with the Cosmos
Diego Maradona with Argentina
Iker Casillas with Real Madrid
Fabio Cannavaro with Real Madrid
4 women have hoisted the World Cup trophy as captains of their country. Birgit Prinz has hoisted it twice for Germany.
I have seen one of them as a coach and 2 of the other 3 as players.
April Heinrichs as USA coach
Birgit Prinz with Germany
Carla Overbeck with the USA
