Spain Celebrates FIFA Women's World Cup Title

  • 22 Aug 2023

Recently, Spain has won their first Women’s World Cup title less than a year after a player rebellion, holding off England 1-0 on 20th August after Olga Carmona’s first-half goal.

Key Points

  • Loss for UK: The Lionesses were trying to bring a World Cup back to England for the first time since 1966, but fell just short in front of 75,784 spectators at the final at Stadium Australia.
  • Historic Victory: Spain’s first major international trophy made it the first European team to win the Women’s World Cup since Germany in 2007.
  • Carmona's Remarkable Achievement: Olga Carmona, a 23-year-old Real Madrid player, was named the final's most valuable player and became the first player since American Carli Lloyd in 2015 to score in both a World Cup semifinal and final.
