Cuauhtemoc Blanco
Club:America
Position:Midfielder

Best remembered for his "kangaroo hop" party-piece at the last World Cup, Blanco is also one of his country's most prolific strikers.

In France, he managed to pull off the unorthodox trick of trapping the ball between both feet and jumping over the challenge of his rivals on more than one occasion.

But there is far more to his game than just one fancy skill.

Injury hampered his involvement during qualifying and he started just four games, but he still managed to finish as his country's top scorer with a remarkable nine goals.

His speed and skill are key assets, often drawing some ill-timed tackles from his opponents in and around the penalty area.

He has returned home to Mexico to play for America after a loan spell in Spain with Real Valladolid.
