The Spanish women’s football team recently made history by winning the World Cup, beating England one nil. It was a tight, tense, exciting game, and for much of it, the teams seemed evenly matched. Here are three of the Spanish footballers who helped clinch the victory for their side.
The 23-year-old player scored the only goal of the match, with a fantastic strike which smashed past the English goalkeeper. Known for her speed and agility, when she’s not representing the national team, Carmona plays for the world-famous Real Madrid. She has now cemented her reputation as one of the world’s greatest players.
An incredibly fast player, and one who is often instrumental in setting up goals (as well as scoring plenty of her own), Bonmatí showed off her technical skills as she got the ball past England players time and time again. For her consistency, skill, and spirit, she was awarded player of the tournament.
Although Caldentey was substituted off in the final minutes of the game, she played ferociously and came very close to making the score two-nil for Spain. Fast, creative, and good at seeing gaps on the field, she deserved the praise she received after the match.
