Carvalho to Captain Seleccao

Due to Cristiano Ronaldo’s absence because of injury, he will pass on the armband to Ricardo Carvalho. Carvalho has captained the Seleccao before, such as against Estonia in 2009, and it looks like he will again for Portugal’s upcoming two qualifying games. I personally do not agree with this choice. Bruno Alves shows worlds more leadership, but Carvalho has been with the Seleccao longer, which is most likely why this decision was made.
