Spain has defeated European champions, England Lionesses 1-0 to emerge the world champion at the FIFA Women World Cup competition.
The final match was played today, August 20, at Accor Stadium Sydney in Australia.
A left-footed strike from full-back Olga Carmona wearing the captain’s armband in the 29th minute was part of a dominant first half for Spain that proved to be just enough to beat England.
With the victory after a thrilling encounter, the La Roja won its first-ever FIFA Women’s World Cup title as Spain survived nearly 15 minutes of stoppage time to secure the maiden World Cup trophy.
Spain’s win marked the first time a new World Cup champion was crowned since 2011.
