Pape Thiaw
Club:Lausanne
Position:Forward

Pape Thiaw may be forced to start the World Cup on the bench but some see him as the perfect strike partner for El Hadji Diouf.

His role at the African Nations Cup was limited and he was left out of the final against Cameroon.

However, he was on target three times in World Cup qualifying including two against Namibia.

A fiery character who possesses raw pace and a direct style of play, he seems to be on the same wavelength as first-choice striker Diouf.

The low-point of his career in Switzerland came when he was banned for 12 matches following a tunnel bust-up after Lausanne's match against Servette.
