Spain down England to win Women’s World Cup for first time

Spanish technique triumphed over English resilience as La Roja overcame months of turmoil and division to secure their first major title with a hard-fought 1-0 victory over England in the Women’s World Cup final at Stadium Australia. Captain Olga Carmona scored the only goal in the first half, leading Spain to win the tournament at their third attempt. Despite missing some of their top talent due to a mutiny against coach Jorge Vilda, Aitana Bonmati and Teresa Abelleira dominated the midfield, and England goalkeeper Mary Earps saved a second-half penalty to keep the margin of victory from being greater. Bonmati, named player of the tournament, expressed her disbelief and joy at the team’s remarkable achievement. Vilda, only the second male coach to win a major women’s tournament since 2000, expressed his pride in the team’s performance and their ability to play, suffer, and believe. England, under coach Sarina Wiegman, suffered their second defeat in 39 matches since she took over, denying them the opportunity to add a maiden world title to their European Championship crown. The match started at a fast pace, with England initially having the upper hand. Lauren Hemp had a couple of chances to score, while Spain responded with attacking plays of their own. Spain took the lead in the 29th minute through Carmona’s angled shot. The goal seemed to deflate England, and Spain had the better opportunities for the rest of the half. In the second half, Wiegman made tactical changes, while Spain continued to press forward. Both teams had chances to score, with Earps saving a penalty for England. Despite England’s late efforts, Spain held on to their lead and secured the victory. Wiegman acknowledged the incredible and open game played by both teams and expressed pride in her team’s performance.
