José Francisco Gabriel de Anda (born 5 June 1971 in Mexico City) is a former Mexican soccer player and current pundit for ESPN Deportes and ESPN Mexico.

He played for several clubs, including Santos Laguna, Cruz Azul, Pachuca and Correcaminos

He played for the Mexico national football team and was a participant at the 2002 FIFA World Cup.

Contrary to popular belief, his given name is "Francisco", and his last names are "Gabriel" and "de Anda". This confusion happens because Gabriel is a common given name.

Gabriel de Anda currently appears on ESPN Deportes in the United States and throughout Latin America on ESPN Latin America as an analyst for various programs.

His brother Juan Carlos Gabriel de Anda who was a Fox Deportes anchor until he was fired in January 2015 for being intoxicated on the air, now also works for ESPN.
