Robbo wrote for the Daily Mail: “I have never been an advocate of strikers being captain.
“There is a clamour for Harry Kane to lead England and I understand that. He’s scoring goals, full of confidence and works his socks off but I wouldn’t make him captain.
“It needs to be a centre half or midfielder as they are closer to the main action and in a better position to assess the team shape.
“That’s why, for me, the captain should be Gary Cahill.
“I had Gary for a three-month spell on loan at Sheffield United when he was 21. Even then he was a good talker and organiser, and he’s a quality defender.
“He’s worked alongside one of the best captains in John Terry and has taken over his mantle at Chelsea. He’s got experience, 57 caps, and when he talks to younger players he will command their respect.”
