Spain secured their first ever Women’s World Cup title with a 1-0 win over England at the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup final in Sydney. The win marks a historic FIFA Women’s World Cup campaign for Spain who previously failed to make it past the Round of 16. Making it to the final after knockout wins over Switzerland, the Netherlands and Sweden, was already a first for Spain with the victory in the final cause for an even bigger celebration. Captain Olga Carmona smashed the decisive goal as Spain defeated England 1-0 to lift the FIFA Women’s World Cup title.
Spain’s first major international trophy made it the first European team to win the Women’s World Cup since Germany in 2007.In addition, Spain’s victory makes them only the second nation to have won both the men’s and the women’s World Cups.

Spain’s victory is a historic moment for the team, for the country, and for the women’s game. It is a moment that will be remembered for many years to come.
