When you go into team management, you can select player roles. Most of them make sense, like who is taking the corners, free kicks and penalties. But what exactly does the captain do in FIFA 14? Does the selection of captain influence the gameplay, or is this just who is going to wear the armband and get mentioned by the commentators when scoring a goal?
According to Wikipedia, the captains only two responsibilities that I believe could be in the game are just graphical things: to hoist up cup if you win a tournament and to participate in the coin toss at the beginning of the match. Both do not hold any significance for gameplay of course.
