Spain made a winning start to a World Cup campaign for the first time in 52 years on Sunday as they beat Slovenia 3-1 in their opening group B match.

Raul scored the opening goal on the stroke of half-time, selling his marker with a brilliant dummy just inside the box before stabbing the ball past goalkeeper Marko Simeunovic for his 26th international goal.
