Cap (sport) sports game

In sport, a cap is a metaphorical term for a player's appearance in a game at international level. The term dates from the practice in the United Kingdom of awarding a cap to every player in an international match of association football. In the early days of football, the concept of each team wearing a set of matching shirts had not been universally adopted, so each side would distinguish itself from the other by wearing a specific sort of cap.

FIFA criteria

FIFA recognises only matches played within the FIFA World Cup (including qualifying competitions), continental competitions (including qualifiers), friendly matches between senior national teams and Olympic final and qualifying matches played up to and including 1948 (with certain exceptions[ clarification needed ]) as international "A" matches. This affects some players who were formerly included in FIFA's 'Century Club'. Therefore, the records established by the associations with regard to these players may differ from the FIFA Century Club.
