Spain beat England 1-0 in the final of the 2023 World Cup. Captain Olga Carmona scored the winner in the 29th minute, enabling La Roja to lift the trophy for the first time in history.
The best attack at the 2023 World Cup, with 18 goals to its name, was unsurprisingly crowned world champion. Spain won the final of the Women’s World Cup against England on 20 August. A first trophy that confirms the emergence of women’s football in the Iberian nation, since one of its clubs, FC Barcelona, also won the Champions League this year.
Olga Carmona took advantage of a Lucy Bronze clearance in midfield to open the scoring. Mariona Caldentey set up her captain on the wing. The Spaniard then sent a low cross-shot into the back of Mary Earps’ net.
In the second half, Jennifer Hermoso had the chance to double her side’s lead from the penalty spot. But the penalty, taken low and too weak, was easily saved by Mary Earps, who had gone the right way. The save galvanised the English, but Spain held firm to win their first World Cup.
