Paolo Montero
Club:Juventus
Position:Defender

At 30, time is no longer on Montero's side.

Increasingly susceptible to injury he may be, but when he is fit he still makes his commanding presence felt.

Still regarded as one of the best defenders in the world, the some-time Uruguay captain is strong in the tackle and a tough man-marker.

A groin injury kept him out for part of this season, but Uruguay manager Victor Pua will be relieved that he has returned in time for the World Cup.

He first moved to Serie A when he joined Atalanta from Uruguayan outfit Penarol.
