Spain, on the other hand, would be looking for a successful World Cup campaign this time. They have been part of the coveted tournament on every occasion but have not enjoyed success barring second finish on two occasions (1971 and 1994) and third position in 2006. Frederic Soyez, Spain Head Coach, has assured that his team is quite capable of the medal positions.
