Spain are through to the last 16 of the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.
The La Roja sealed a place in the Round of 16 in style as they breezed past Zambia 5-0.
They started the game brightly, scoring their first two goals after just 13 minutes through Teresa Abelleira and Jenni Hermoso, but Zambia grew into the game to make things difficult for them.
They found their rhythm again in the second half though, with the substitute Alba Redondo coming on to coolly round the keeper and slot it into the empty net before Hermoso got her second of the game, and her 50th Spain goal, by turning in the rebound after Navarro hit the post.
Redondo then got her second late on to round off the scoring.
Spain joined Japan in the knockout rounds, and their big win here lifted them to the top of the table on goal difference.
Those two sides meet on Monday in a match that will decide the group winner.
Zambia’s first Women’s World Cup comes to an early end as they’re knocked out of the tournament, but they will play their final game against Costa Rica.
