Tony Sylva
Club:Monaco
Position:Goalkeeper

The 26-year-old was one of the oustanding performers in the African Nations Cup, winning plaudits for his bravery and quick reflexes.

Sylva showed incredible sharpness despite not being considered by Monaco throughout the 2001/2002 season.

Such displays mean he will be Senegal's number one in Korea and Japan and that rival Oumar Diallo will be left on the sidelines.

A strong World Cup showing could alleviate his club woes.
