Ruiz is Spain's top scorer with six goals and his double against Mali was the key in securing Spain's place in the final. The Barca prodigy is direct in his approach and uses a lot of intelligence to move into scoring areas and also goes behind defences. All in all, it should be a treat for the spectators as well as good study material for the present scouts at the stadium.
