YORELI RINCON

Born: July 27, 1993, in Piedecuesta, Santander, Colombia

Position: Midfielder

International career: Still only a teenager, Rincon first shot to fame on the international scene at youth level. She played for Colombia at the 2008 FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup in New Zealand and last year's FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup in Germany, where she scored two goals to help her country reach the semifinals. She's been just as effective for the senior side, scoring five goals in last year's qualifying South American qualifying tournament for the 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup.

Why is she so special? One of the brightest young South American prospects, Rincon is an exciting player who combines midfield creativity, amazing possession and dribbling skills, and a nose for goal.

Her most famous moment: Scoring the opening goal in a 2-0 win over Sweden in the quarter-finals of last year's FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup.

What they're saying about her: "[She] shows a lot of maturity and experience on the pitch." — Ricardo Rozo, Colombian national team coach
