Daley Blind captained Netherlands recently twice. Last Friday after Wesley Sneijder left the pitch injured, last Tuesday the entire match against England. His father Danny also have captained Netherlands in the 1990s. Are there more fathers and sons who have captained a NT? (Only in full A-intertational matches).

Some examples:
Maldini.
Guðjohnsen.
Ayew (Abedi 'Pelé' and André)
Kadlec.
Aubameyang.
I think Cha (Korea) but neither father nor son wast a regular captain.

I thought also Djorkaeff, but surprisingly it seems Youri was never the captain (at least, not from the start of a match).

For Italy, Almanacco Illustrato Del Calcio reports Cesare Maldini (6 times) and Paolo Maldini (74 times) and Valentino Mazzola (5) and Sandro Mazzola (5). I wouldn't exclude Julio Montero Castillo and Paolo Montero and Pablo and Diego Forlán for Uruguay or Domingos and Ademir da Guia for Brazil. Or maybe Vladimír Weiss (grand-father, son and grand-son) for Czechoslovakia/Slovakia.

Note that former captain Danny is not only his father but also the coach of the national team of the Netherlands..

Well then another question could be, which coaches have picked their own sons for the national team? (or daughters, in the case of a man coaching a women's team)

A very sad news: Cesare Maldini passed away yesterday at the age of 84. The first Italian captain to win the European Cup.


I have found out another case: Matti "Roto" Paatelainen captained Finland in 1977; his son Mika-Matti "Mixu" Paatelainen in 1998.

I'm sure the next ones will be Peter and Kasper Schmeichel of Denmark.

Denmark's captain was Simon Kjær from the first minute, but, after he was replaced, Kasper Schmeichel wore the armband, as you can verify at minute 8:13 of the following video.
