Dario Silva
Club:Malaga
Position:Forward

Employed as the out-and-out striker, Dario Silva is Uruguay's principle source of goals.

He was their top scorer with five goals during qualifying and he is a handful for defenders in a number of different ways.

Strength is his main attribute but he is also a powerful runner and is good with his back to goal.

Team-mate Alvaro Recoba is usually played just behind him and, while Silva cannot match the Inter man for skill, his more direct approach to the game serves his country well.

Silva was on target in the crucial victory over Australia in the second leg of the play-off for the final World Cup place.
