The heart of Portuguese attack, Cristiano Ronaldo brings to the side a youthful panache and will look to guide his side past the group stages. The stage itself is tough, and filling Figo's shoes will be a tough ask. He has been prolific, whether his captaincy will be as good remains to be seen.

After captain Drogba's injury in a friendly, defender Kolo Toure will be leading The Elephants. His team has experience and determination and he’ll look to guide them while leading from the back. His captaincy as yet is unevaluated but last minute captains seem to be the trend this World Cup.
