Matthew Upson, West Ham United
Matthew Upson is the 31-year-old English footballer that plays for West Ham United, he plays the position of central defender and there is no coincidence that he wears the captain’s armband in the team as he is a gifted player that has been a part of the
team for some time now.
He is also a defender and it is usually players from the defensive squad that make the captainship. He started his career with the youth academy of Luton Town in 1994. After two years of training he made it to the Gunners first team squad in 1997.
He was a part of Arsenal’s squad for six years during which he made only thirty five appearances without even netting a single goal.
Then after the start of the new millennium he went on three different loan spells first with Nottingham Forest in 2000, then Crystal Palace in 2001 and last in Reading in 2002.
He made an official move to Birmingham City in 2003 where he spent the next four years to give a hundred and thirteen appearances with five goals scored. Last he made a move to West Ham United in 2007 and is still a part of that squad.
Since then he has made a hundred and fourteen appearances for the team with netting four goals in the process.
He has also been a part of the English national team squad since1998; he started with the under twenty one squad where he made twelve appearances with two goals scored.
Then in 2003 he made it to the Three Lions squad and since then has made twenty one appearances with two goals scored for the country’s glory.
Matthew Upson is an organized player that demonstrates a lot of force on the football field, he has the respect of his colleagues, he plays with consistency, and has exemplary leadership skills.
It is his coordination with the team that makes West Ham United shine where they most probably would have not if it was not for this English player. Upson got the honour of wearing the captain’s armband to the football field last season and since then he
has become more focused than ever to play to the worth of the responsibility that he has as a captain of the club.
