Francisco Palencia
Club:Espanyol
Position:Forward

Approaching 29, Francisco Palencia is beginning to play for Mexico in the same manner as England's Teddy Sheringham.

His prolific strike-rate has shown signs of decline - he scored just once during 14 qualifying appearances.

Nevertheless, he is perhaps Cuauhtemoc Blanco's favoured partner up front.

He can drop deep and is good with his back to goal.

Using his brain more than his pace he choses the right moment for the perfect pass, the likes of which helped Blanco towards his nine goals in qualifying.
