This moment will go down in history. Spain won the Women’s World Cup for the first time on Sunday in Sydney, Australia, by defeating England with a score of 1-0. This victory came despite the fact that Spain had been facing adversity throughout the tournament.

It is astonishing that Spain was able to make it all the way to the championship game after the turbulent year that the national squad had gone through. The fact that Spain’s national squad was plagued by in-fighting and disagreements during the entirety of the competition, yet still managed to emerge victorious against the reigning champion of Europe and the game’s pre-match favourite, is what makes this accomplishment so remarkable.

The game was decided by an outstanding goal scored by Olga Carmona in the 29th minute. La Roja became only the second country, after Germany, to win both the men’s and women’s World Cups. Spain could even afford to miss a second-half penalty as La Roja became only the second country to do so.

Many of England’s players were seen wiping away tears after their hopes of becoming the country’s first senior football world champion since 1966 were dashed by an outstanding performance by Spain. Spain’s players celebrated their victory by making a happy heap of red on the turf at Stadium Australia.

Only one team was able to compete with Spain in terms of possession and shots on goal because Spain outplayed England. But England, which, like Spain, was competing in a Women’s World Cup final for the first time, can take some satisfaction in the fact that the team has advanced further than ever before in this competition.

The future of Spain, however, appears to be the brightest, particularly if problems off the pitch can be rectified, because, astonishingly, the Iberian nation has now won the World Cup at three different age brackets: the under-17 level, the under-20 level, and the senior level.
