Spain Wins World Cup

Spain was crowned winner of the FIFA Women's World Cup yesterday morning after defeating England 1-0, becoming just the fifth nation to win after the US, Germany, Japan, and Norway. The victory also makes Spain just one of two countries—alongside Germany—with World Cup wins for both its women's and men's teams. Watch a recap here.

The lone goal came in the 29th minute off the foot of Spain's Olga Carmona, whose post-score celebration—where she lifted her jersey to reveal a message on her undershirt—piqued viewers' curiosity. Spain was blocked from padding their lead in the 69th minute after English goalkeeper Mary Earps deftly saved a penalty kick from Spain's Jennifer Hermoso. See game stats here.

The victory for Spain comes less than a year after 15 of the national team's players demanded Coach Jorge Vilda be removed, alleging a controlling atmosphere. Only three of those players played in this tournament, while Vilda remained as manager. See a timeline of the tensions here.
