In a battle of world football titans, Spain and England, in the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup Final in Sydney, Australia, Spain came out with a 1-0 win on a goal by Olga Carmona in the 29th minute. It is the first Women’s World Cup crown for Spain.

Spain was definitely the better side, out-possessing England 57%-43%, out-shooting them 13-8, and having the vast majority of good chances.

Still, there was only one goal in the match, as Spain’s left back scored the goal of her life, and one of the biggest goals in her country’s illustrious history in the sport.

Spain had a chance to go up 2-0, but England goalkeeper Mary Earps saved a penalty from Spain’s Jennifer Hermoso midway through the second half.

But, England simply could not muster great chances all match long, and once again, football is not coming home.

The sports world lit up with reactions to the match.

Spain becomes the second country, alongside Germany, to win the both the men’s and women’s World Cup. The Spanish men won in 2010.
