Spain triumph over England to win FIFA Women’s World Cup

Spain has won the Women’s World Cup, defeating European champion England 1-0 in a final that delivered great drama at the end of the tournament.

This is their first-time world cup win.

Flourishing in her role as centre-forward, Laurent Hemp was a scourge for the Spanish defence in the opening exchanges, striking the crossbar in the 16th minute in one of the match’s defining moments.

Captain Olga Carmona gave Spain a 1-0 lead over England at half-time. She scored in the 29th minute after England lost possession in midfield and Spain countered quickly to take advantage in the clash in Sydney, Australia.

Carmona had also scored the winner in the last four against Sweden.
