Mbo Mpenza

Club: Excelsior Mouscron
Position: Forward

The 25-year-old has struggled to jump out of the shadow of brother Emile, who only misses the World Cup as a result of a groin injury.

Mbo was picked in Belgium's Euro 2000 squad but made just one substitutes' appearance in the World Cup qualifying campaign.

Robert Waseige will probably ask him to warm the bench for a second major tournament.

He is fast, though, and can be employed on the right-hand side of midfield or possibly in his preferred position as striker.
