Spain defeats England 1-0 to win Women's World Cup

The Spanish women's national football team has won the World Cup for the first time, defeating England 1-0 in the final. Olga Carmona scored the only goal of the match in the 29th minute.

Spain dominated the match and created several chances to score, but they were denied by a combination of good goalkeeping from England's Mary Earps and some wayward finishing. England had their chances too, but they were unable to find the net.

The victory is a historic moment for Spanish football and a vindication of the hard work and dedication of the team and their coach, Jorge Vilda. It is also a major boost for the women's game in Spain, which has been growing in popularity in recent years.

"It's a dream come true," said Carmona after the match. "We worked so hard for this and it's amazing to finally be here."

England captain Millie Bright said: "It's tough to lose, but Spain were the better team on the day. They deserved to win."

The Women's World Cup was hosted by Australia and New Zealand. Australia finished third, losing to Sweden in the playoff for third place.
