Diego Forlan and 5 Aging Strikers Who'll Still Be Threats at the World Cup

Forget about the two missed penalties. The 2013 Confederations Cup proved that Diego Forlan is still a force to be reckoned with when he pulls on the Uruguay shirt. 

The Internacional striker is just one of several deadly forwards on the wrong side of 30 that will be hoping to make a splash next year at the World Cup. 

Strikers can often prolong their careers far longer than those who play in the middle of the pitch. While physical attributes start to wane, their instincts in front of the net and ability to finish are abilities that stay intact for the natural goalscorer. 

Along with Forlan, there will be plenty of veteran hit men present in Brazil 2014. If you have any more suggestions, let us know in the comments section.
