Spain has won the FIFA Women’s World Cup by defeating England 1-0 in the final. The victory marks Spain’s first major title in women’s football and adds a new name to the list of Women’s World Cup champions.
Captain Olga Carmona scored the winning goal for Spain in the first half of the match. Aitana Bonmati and Teresa Abelleira controlled the midfield for Spain, and they could have secured a larger margin of victory if not for England goalkeeper Mary Earps saving a second-half penalty.
England’s defeat denied them the opportunity to add a World Cup title to their European Championship victory from the previous year. The match was the first Women’s World Cup final not featuring either the United States or Germany.
Spain’s victory comes after they faced internal challenges, including a player mutiny against their coach and a loss against Japan in the group stage. However, they managed to regroup and put up a strong performance in the final to secure their historic win.
