Profile

Francileudo dos Santos was the star of Tunisia's qualifying campaign, netting six goals including four in the 7-0 rout of Malawi.

The 27-year-old only obtained Tunisian citizenship a month before the 2004 African Cup of Nations, having turned them down previously in the hope of plauing for Brazil, and he went on to score the opener in the final against Morocco in the historic triumph - his fourth in the tournament.

Not the biggest, the striker's strength lies in his pace and he will be relied upon to find the net for the Carthage Eagles.

Moved to Europe in 1997 when he joined Standard Liege but a disappointing spell with the Belgians saw him move to Tunisia and Etoile du Sahel.

After two impressive seasons he followed coach Jean Fernandez, the man who discovered Zinedine Zidane, to Sochaux where he helped them to promotion.

The forward spent five years there before a move to Toulouse followed last summer.
