Key Highlights of the FIFA Women’s World Cup Final 2023

  • 16’ – The first big chance of the match went to England when the left-footed curling shot of Hemp struck the crossbar. Daly provided a beautiful pass to Hemp just at the edge of the D-box. 
  • 28’- GOAL The only goal of the match came during the 29th minute with skipper Olga Carmona‘s left-footed shot in the bottom right corner. Caldentey provided the assist for Olga Carmona’s effort. The Spanish attack started when Bronze lost possession and could not get back to her position in time. 
  • 45’- On the stroke of halftime, Spain got another chance to double their lead and bury the game. But this time it was Paralluelo’s turn to hit the crossbar and gave English fans a huge sigh of relief. 
  • England’s manager Weigman sensing urgency made two significant substitutions at halftime. He introduced two strikers -James in place of misfiring Russo and Chloe Kelly for Daly. 
  • 68’ – VAR and the match referee Penso almost took an eternity to decide on the penalty call against England. They were checking for a possible handball by Walsh in the buildup to Spain’s counterattack. Caldentey chipped the ball in the middle and it struck Walsh’s arms. Finally, the VAR awarded a penalty to Spain giving them a golden opportunity to make it way past England’s reach. 
  • 69’- Penalty Saved, Earps is England’s savior. Hermoso came up to take the shot and was denied by a stupendous save by Erps. The ball was heading towards the bottom right-hand corner and Erps was on the spot with her guessing abilities. 
  • 90’- Due to goal celebrations and the extended VAR penalty call the 4th official decided to give 13 minutes of stoppage time thereby giving enough time for England to add some more drama to the game. 
  • 90+13’ – The referee looks at her watch and blows the whistle and Spain have created history. They are the fifth team to lift FIFA Women’s World Cup trophy.
