In a thrilling Tuesday semifinal match, Spain secured its spot in the Women’s World Cup final with a 2-1 victory over Sweden, thanks to Olga Carmona’s late 89th-minute goal. This victory marks Spain’s first-ever chance to compete for the championship.

Spain’s journey to the final has been marked by overcoming challenges, including a player revolt against coach Jorge Vilda last year. Now, they are set to face the winner of the Australia-England matchup in the final showdown scheduled for Sunday in Sydney.

The upcoming final promises a historic moment, as both teams vying for the championship are yet to claim a World Cup title. This ensures a new champion will be crowned on Sunday.

On the other side, Sweden faced disappointment once again, having lost in four out of five semifinals. Despite their consistent performance in the tournament, they will now compete for a fourth third-place finish.

As Spain celebrates their hard-fought victory and prepares for the ultimate showdown, the anticipation for the first-time Women’s World Cup champion intensifies.
