Weight78 kg
Height1.82 m
PositionForward

Tenorio was a late arrival to Ecuador's bid for a place in the 2002 World Cup finals, coming on as a sub in the final qualifier against Chile. The burly striker went on to become a regular selection to secure a place for Japan and South Korea but blotted his copybook when sent-off against Yugoslavia in a pre-tournament friendly match.

His pace and strength has helped to turn Liga de Quito into one of the top sides in Ecuador.

Tenorio became only the third Ecuador player to score in the World Cup finals. He netted the opener in the 2-0 win against Poland in 2006 - only the country's second-ever finals victory.

He scored again in the next game as Ecudor beat Costa Rica 3-0 to progress to the knockout stages of the World Cup for the first time.
