Key player: Andrei Kovalenko

There is no point going into the World Cup without a reliable goal-kicker and the men from Spain have certainly found that in Ukrainian-born Andrei Kovalenko.

The 28-year-old was crucially on target with 18 points as Spain qualified for the World Cup against neighbours Portugal in their 21-17 win.

His team may struggle, but Kovalenko at least will be hoping to make a mark on the tournament.
