Spain are struggling with finding a powerful forward, but luckily it has many great strikers who score the goals. It does not rely on one solid striker, but it is a joint effort from many offensive players. To win the World Cup, players need to have the touch and not make any mistakes. Here are the top five scorers who will lead Spain to victory.

Pedro is a powerful forward, but he hasn't been able to make a significant difference; however, this is the World Cup. If there is anytime to be more aggressive and in control of the ball it is now. As a forward for FC Barcelona, he knows what it means to score with the best, and this will be his time to shine.

Cesc Fabregas is often a leading striker when given a chance. If Spain give him the ball near the net, he will bring goals -- unless it's a penalty kick. He needs to steady his strike but can be dangerous with the ball. He is also a great super-sub for a late match goal. His team needs to use him to his full potential.

Spain called up Diego Costa knowing he is one of the best strikers in the world. He is taking time to adjust to Spain's rhythm of play, but once he gets it he will be dangerous. He's was the top goalscorer in La Liga, and he can become a top scorer in the World Cup.

2. Andres Iniesta

Andres Iniesta is one of the best midfielders playing in the World Cup, and he is an essential player for Spain. He may not have a high goal scoring tally, but he does tend to score the important ones. No one can forget he was the player to score the match-winning goal in the 2010 World Cup Final. Spain will look to Iniesta to make the important plays.

1. David Villa

Not only is David Villa Spain's all-time leading goal scorer, but he was the player to make both goals in the most recent warm-up match. Spain's biggest hole is the lack of a strong striker in a Leo Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo fashion, but David Villa could be the saving grace. He may not be a perfect striker, but he is Spain's best bet.
