Captain (association football)
The team captain of an association football team, sometimes known as the skipper, is a team member chosen to be the on-pitch leader of the team: it is one of the older/or more experienced members of the squad, or a player that can influence a game or have good leadership qualities. The team captain is identified by the wearing of an armband; the only official responsibility of a captain specified by the Laws of the Game is to participate in the coin toss prior to kick-off and prior to a penalty shootout. Contrary to what is sometimes said, captains have no special authority under the Laws to challenge a decision by the referee. However, referees may talk to the captain of a side about the side's general behaviour when necessary. At an award-giving ceremony after a fixture like a cup competition final, the captain leads the team up to collect their medals. Any trophy won by a team will be received by the captain who will be the first one to hoist it; the captain generally leads the teams out of the dressing room at the start of the match.
A captain is tasked with running the dressing room. The captain provides a rallying point for the team: if morale is low, it is the captain who will be looked upon to boost their team's spirits. Captains may join the manager in deciding the starting eleven for a certain game. In youth or recreational football, the captain takes on duties, that would, at a higher level, be delegated to the manager. A club captain is appointed for a season. If he is unavailable or not selected for a particular game, or must leave the pitch the club vice-captain will assume similar duties; the match captain is the first player to lift a trophy should the team win one if he was not the club captain. A good example of this was in the 1999 UEFA Champions League Final when match captain Peter Schmeichel lifted the trophy for Manchester United as club captain Roy Keane was suspended. In the 2012 UEFA Champions League Final, match captain Frank Lampard jointly lifted the trophy for Chelsea with club captain John Terry.
A club may appoint two distinct roles: a club captain to represent the players in a public relations role, correspondent on the pitch. Manchester United has had both of these types of captains. After Neville retired in 2011, regular starter Nemanja Vidić was named as club captain. São Paulo's Rogério Ceni is the player. A vice-captain is a player, expected to captain the side when the club's captain is not included in the starting eleven, or if, during a game, the captain is substituted or sent off. Examples include Thomas Müller at Bayern Munich, Marcelo at Real Madrid, César Azpilicueta at Chelsea, Sergio Busquets at Barcelona, Harry Kane at Tottenham Hotspur, James Milner at Liverpool and Ashley Young at Manchester United; some clubs name a 3rd captain or a 4th captain to take the role of captain when both the captain and vice-captain are unavailable. In the 1986 FIFA World Cup, when Bryan Robson was injured and vice-captain Ray Wilkins received a two-game suspension for a red card, Peter Shilton became England's captain for the rest of the tournament.
During the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa, Germany had three captains. Michael Ballack had captained the national team since 2004, including the successful qualifiers for the 2010 World Cup, but he did not play in the latter tournament due to a last minute injury. Philipp Lahm was appointed captain in South Africa, but due to an illness that ruled him out of Germany's final fixture, Bastian Schweinsteiger captained the team for that game, the third-place match. Lahm stated in an interview that he would not relinquish the captaincy when Ballack returned, causing some controversy, so team manager Oliver Bierhoff clarified the situation saying "Philipp Lahm is the World Cup captain and Michael Ballack is still the captain". Lahm ended up becoming the permanent captain of Germany until his retirement, as Ballack was never called up to the national team again. Captain
Johannes "John" Jacobus Bosman is a Dutch retired footballer who played as a striker. A prolific goalscorer for both club and country, he played professionally for 19 years, most notably with Ajax and Anderlecht, surpassing the 100-goal mark with both clubs and winning a total of eight major titles combined. Nicknamed Bossie, Bosman represented Netherlands at the 1994 World Cup and Euro 1988, helping the national team win the latter tournament. Born in Bovenkerk, Bosman began his professional career at AFC Ajax, making his Eredivisie debut on 20 November 1983 at the age of 18 in a 5–2 home win against Roda JC, scoring in the match, he finished his first season with four goals in 14 games. From 1984 to 1987, Bosman and fellow youth graduate Marco van Basten scored an astonishing 138 league goals combined, as the Amsterdam club won the 1985 national championship and two cups. After van Basten left for A. C. Milan in the 1987 summer, he netted 25 goals in 32 games as the team finished second to PSV Eindhoven.
Bosman signed for the Belgian club in the 1988 off-season, reuniting with former Ajax manager Aad de Mos. He scored twice against PSV, in a 3–0 home win in the first leg of the 1988 European Super Cup. Additionally, Bosman netted in double digits in both of his seasons with the Yellow Reds, notably scoring 18 in his first as the team won the national championship after a 41-year wait. After one year back in his country with PSV Eindhoven, as successor to Wim Kieft who signed with a team in France – he served as a target player for Romário, but felt uncomfortable in that role, was under threat of losing his starting position to youngster Twan Scheepers – Bosman returned to Belgium and joined R. S. C. Anderlecht, reuniting with former Mechelen teammates Graeme Rutjes and Bruno Versavel and being dubbed "The Giraffe". In 1996, new manager Johan Boskamp relegated Bosman to the bench, but he was overall a solid contributor in the conquest of three consecutive leagues and the 1993–94 Belgian Cup, his worst league output being six goals in 1994–95.
Aged 31, Bosman returned to the Netherlands and signed for FC Twente, scoring 20 goals in his first season as the Enschede side finished third and qualified to the UEFA Cup, being used for the remainder of his spell. He played a further three years with fellow league club AZ – signing as a free agent – and finished his professional career at 37 with league totals of 522 games and 241 goals, he retired from football for good after a brief spell with amateurs Amsterdam FC going on to work with Ajax as a striker coach. Bosman played 30 times for the Netherlands, making his debut on 14 May 1986 in a 1–3 friendly loss in West Germany, he was selected by manager Rinus Michels for the UEFA Euro 1988 tournament as starter, but lost his position after the 0–1 group stage loss against the Soviet Union, his position being taken by former Ajax teammate van Basten, who would be crowned the competition's top scorer as the national team emerged victorious. Bosman was however gracious and said that he was unlucky because "Holland was the only country whom van Basten could play for".
Bosman credits van Basten as the greatest striker of all time. Bosman was picked for the squad that appeared at the 1994 FIFA World Cup in the United States, after Ruud Gullit refused to play for the national team in these World Cup, being an unused squad member. Bosman scored nine of his 17 international goals against the same opponent, Cyprus, in three different matches. In a Euro 1988 qualifier on 28 October 1987, in Rotterdam, a homemade bomb or firework exploded in the early stages of the contest close to Cypriot goalkeeper Andreas Charitou. After much pressure from the Dutch side, Luxembourg referee Roger Philippi decided the game could continue; the match ended 8–0 with Bosman establishing a national-team record of five goals in one game, but it was never recognised, as UEFA decided that the match was invalid and Cyprus were awarded a 0–3 victory instead, giving Greece the opportunity to qualify. On 9 December 1987, Netherlands won 4–0 and Bosman netted a hat-trick to see his team through to the final stages in West Germany.
Greece were unhappy with the decision, accusing UEFA's West German chairman of preferring a Dutch team in the finals, bringing a larger crowd of supporters to the stadia. The bomb was hidden in a tennis ball; the thrower was 21-year-old John Staal from Oss, arrested. In October 2001, Bosman's five-year-old son Devin died in a traffic accident.

Helmond is a municipality and a city in the Metropoolregio Eindhoven of the province of North Brabant in the southern Netherlands. Helmond has many textile companies; the Vlisco factory is located next to the Zuid-Willemsvaart canal. The name'Helmond' can be traced back to a combination of Hel, which means "low-lying", Mond, which would refer to a higher ground, secure place; the name has nothing to do with the contemporary literal translation of Hell Mouth. In 1241 a first coat of arms was created, containing a helmet as a reference to the word Helmond, since this early in history the historical meaning of the city name was lost to its inhabitants; this helmet would symbolize the fortified medieval town. A medieval pot helmet, this was adapted to a new fashion style and is now a tournament helmet; the oak branches symbolizing freedom. The bird in the branches has no meaning; the spoken language is Helmonds.

Hans van Breukelen
Johannes Franciscus "Hans" van Breukelen is a former Dutch football player who played as a goalkeeper. He is the technical director of the KNVB. Van Breukelen grew up in De Bilt. In 1976, he moved to FC Utrecht. After two years with Nottingham Forest, Van Breukelen moved to PSV Eindhoven in 1984. With PSV, he won three domestic cups. In 1988, Van Breukelen won the European Cup as part of the Treble after saving Benfica's sixth penalty in the shoot-out. In the Netherlands, he was named Goalkeeper of the Year four times. Van Breukelen played 73 caps for the Dutch national team. In 1988, he triumphed at the European Championships with The Netherlands, he appeared at the 1990 World Cup and Euro 1992. After his career, he became an entrepreneur in different non-football business ventures, although he served as director of football at FC Utrecht and was a member of the PSV board of directors from 2010-2016. Hans van Breukelen is one of five European players to win a Treble with their club and a cup with their national team in the same year.
The other four players are his teammates Berry van Aerle, Ronald Koeman, Gerald Vanenburg and Wim Kieft. Van Breukelen, born in Utrecht, started playing club football at amateur team BVC from De Bilt in 1964. In 1974, he reached the BVC first team at age 17. A few months Van Breukelen was transferred to FC Utrecht. In his youth, he studied to become a teacher. Van Breukelen started out in the FC Utrecht reserve team, but soon became the club's third goalkeeper behind Blagoje Istatov and Jan Stroomberg. On 20 March 1977, Van Breukelen made his official debut after being chosen to replace Istanov in the match against Sparta, which Utrecht lost 3–0 away from home, he would become the first-choice between the sticks for four years. In the 1980–81 season, Utrecht reached the third place and a year Van Breukelen and his team reached the KNVB Cup final. In 1982, FC Utrecht was facing bankruptcy and were willing to sell Van Breukelen in order to raise funds. There was no sign of a transfer and he played two matches in the 1982–83 season.
But in September, Van Breukelen was signed by Nottingham Forest. In total, he played 142 Eredivisie games for the club. After Peter Shilton had left Nottingham Forest, coach Brian Clough went on to pick Van Breukelen as his new goalkeeper; the club paid £200,000 to FC Utrecht. In his first match, he kept a clean sheet in the game against Brighton & Hove Albion. After thirteen league games, he suffered an injury. After his recovery, Van Breukelen returned in the Nottingham Forest starting line-up and the team went on to qualify for the UEFA Cup. In the 1983–84 season, Van Breukelen played 36 league matches, keeping 11 clean sheets in the process; the team ended third, six points behind title winners Liverpool. In the UEFA Cup, Nottingham Forest were beaten in the semi-finals against Anderlecht. During the season, Nottingham Forest and Van Breukelen had increasing arguments about his frequent international call-ups. Not willing to sacrifice his spot in the Dutch team, he decided to leave England after the 1983–84 season.
Van Breukelen returned to his home country to play for PSV Eindhoven. In his first year, the team missed out on the Eredivisie title and were eliminated by Van Breukelen's old team FC Utrecht in the semi-finals of the Dutch cup, but in the following two years, PSV did secured the league championship – Van Breukelen's first major trophies. In a match between Feyenoord and PSV in 1987, Van Breukelen was involved in an error that became known in The Netherlands as ‘het polletje van Van Breukelen’; when he bounced the ball from his hands on a clump of grass, it swirled in an unwanted direction. Van Breukelen rushed to collect the ball but this was deemed unlawful by the referee, as goalkeepers cannot pick up the ball; the awarded last-minute free kick was converted by Feyenoord, making the score 1–1. The subsequent public mockery resulted in difficult times for Van Breukelen, but he recovered in time for the 1987–88 season; that year, PSV won the league title for the third time in a row, it won the KNVB Cup and the European Cup.
In the European Cup final against Benfica, the match remained goalless so penalties had to decide the outcome. After PSV converted their sixth penalty, Benfica's Antonio Veloso's low kick in the left corner was parried away by Van Breukelen. For his performances, he won the Dutch Goalkeeper of the Year award in 1988. In the 1988–89 season, PSV won the double yet again. Van Breukelen and PSV won the Dutch cup in 1990 and two more league titles in 1991 and 1992. During the 1993–94 season, Van Breukelen publicly voiced criticism towards the behaviour of his teammate Romário, it resulted in a fine from PSV for the goalkeeper. Three yellow cards for minor offences caused a suspension for an important match against Ajax. In early 1994, Van Breukelen hoped that PSV would offer him the position of general manager at the club, but PSV chose Frank Arnesen instead, he requested the role of second goalkeeper for next season but the club rejected that idea. Ajax offered him the second goalkeeper role, but Van Breukelen refused to play for them, chose to retire.
On 6 October 1994, Van Breukelen was honoured with a testimonial match from PSV

Van Tiggelen gained nearly 60 times for the Netherlands, representing the nation at the 1990 World Cup and two European Championships, being a starter in the team that won Euro 1988. Born in Oud-Beijerland, South Holland, Van Tiggelen – nicknamed "De Spijker" – started his professional career with Sparta Rotterdam, making his Eredivisie debut on 30 August 1978, in a 1–0 home in against neighbours Feyenoord.

Afterwards, he had his first abroad experience, as he joined R.
S. C. Anderlecht in neighbouring Belgium, where he appeared regularly. Aged 34, Van Tiggelen returned to his own country; the veteran marker still managed to collect nearly 100 official appearances, playing 26 games as the side won the 1991–92 national championship. He saw out his career at 38, after one season – and again in the top division – with Dordrecht'90. Van Tiggelen returned to his first club serving as assistant manager and youth trainer. In 2005, he had his first head coach experience, finished the season in the second position, helping Sparta return to the first division; the second spell as head manager – still with Sparta – occurred in late 2007, following the dismissal of Gert Aandewiel.
