He's seems to be no 1 for England but is only 3rd after Nev and Giggsy in United.

Rio Ferdinand set for England captaincy
England coach Fabio Capello will assess John Terry and Rio Ferdinand in training, with the Manchester United captain widely tipped to be handed the captaincy role on a permanent basis.


Ferdinand has long been the favourite to take over from Chelsea's Terry, who lost support within the Football Association last year for his aggressive on-pitch antics, which were not deemed suitable for an England captain.

Although Terry has since won plenty of plaudits for his wholehearted displays and his dignity after missing the decisive penalty in the Champions League final, Capello is thought to prefer Ferdinand in the role long-term.

rio is a better role model on the pitch for people. (im not too sure off the pitch)
terry on the other hand goes around barking at referees and spitting at others, behaving like a rogue.
