Spain win their first Women’s World Cup title, beating England 1-0 in the final


SYDNEY (AP) — Spain won Women’s World Cup for the first time with Olga Carmona’s first-half goal that gave La Roja a 1-0 win over England in Sunday’s final.

Both teams played in the final for the first time. The win gave the Spanish women their first major international trophy, and redeemed themselves for a quarter-final defeat by eventual European champions England last year.

The Lionesses went into the final unbeaten and were looking to bring a World Cup to England for the first time since 1966.

England goalkeeper Mary Earps saved Jenni Hermoso’s penalty in the 70th minute with an impressive save after Keira Walsh was penalized for a handball at a VAR review.
