History has been made.
In the 2023 World Cup final, Spain defeated England 1-0 to win the first World Cup in their history on Sunday.
A 22-time Grand Slam champion and congratulator extraordinaire, Rafael Nadal praised the Spanish team. He posted on Instagram story:
“Vamooooooos! Congratulations! Champions of the world!”
Olga Carmona’s fine first-half goal, drilled beyond Mary Earps into the far corner from a tight angle after 29 minutes, proved decisive in Sydney. Spain had the chance to double their lead in the second half when Keira Walsh was penalised for a handball, but Earps saved Jennifer Hermoso’s spot kick.
The win gave the Spanish women their first major international trophy and avenged a quarterfinal loss to eventual champion England in the European championship last year.
Well done, La Roja! Enjoy your victory!
