Spain beat England 1-0 to win first Women’s World Cup title

Captain Olga Carmona scores the only goal as Spain beat England 1-0 to win the Women’s World Cup in Sydney, Australia.

Spain have won the Women’s World Cup for the first time after beating England 1-0 in the final.

Captain Olga Carmona scored in the 29th minute, drilling in from the left of the area after England lost possession in midfield and Spain countered quickly to take advantage in the clash at Stadium Australia on Sunday.

Spain were awarded a penalty shortly after the hour mark for a handball by midfielder Keira Walsh. However, goalkeeper Mary Earps saved Jennifer Hermoso’s spot kick by diving to her left.

England coach Sarina Wiegman made a number of changes, including bringing on forward Lauren James, but they could not find an equaliser as Spain clung on to win their first major title.
