What is the role of the soccer captain?

Asked by 2davidc8 (4956 points ) July 5th, 2014

So, I’ve been watching the World Cup Soccer in Brazil.
I see that every team has a “captain” on the field. He wears an armband, which distinguishes him from the others.
I’m wondering, what is the role of the captain, besides showing up for the coin toss at the beginning of the game? What else does he do that’s important?
