Women’s World Cup, Spain triumphs. England folded in the final


By John

Women’s Spain are world champions for the first time. In their third participation in the world championship event, the Spaniards beat England 1-0 in the final in Sydney. The goal in the 29th minute was decisive Carmona García. Spain could have ended the match in the 70th minute but Hermoso had a penalty saved by goalkeeper Earps. From the first edition of the World Cup to today, there are now 5 national teams that have won the trophy in the 9 editions played so far. This is the roll of honor in summary: 4 victories for the United States (1991, 1999, 2015, 2019); 2 wins for Germany (2003, 2007), 1 win for Norway (1995), Japan (2011) and now Spain (2023).
