Spain's Women Make History with First World Cup Final Berth
Spain defeated Sweden 2-1 in the Women's World Cup semi-final on Tuesday to reach their first ever final.
The match was tied 1-1 with 10 minutes to play when Marta Cardona scored a dramatic winner for Spain.
Cardona's goal came after a long spell of pressure from Spain, who had dominated the game.
Sweden had their chances to win the match, but they were denied by some excellent saves from Spain goalkeeper Sandra Paños.
Spain will now face the winner of the other semi-final between England and France in the final on Saturday.
This is Spain's best performance at a Women's World Cup since they finished third in 2015.
The team has been transformed under the leadership of coach Jorge Vilda, who has instilled a new sense of belief and confidence in the players.
Spain is one of the favourites to win the World Cup and become the first non-European team to do so.
The match was a thrilling encounter, and it was a fitting end to a tournament that has been full of excitement and drama.
Spain's victory is a major moment for women's football, and it is a sign that the game is growing in popularity around the world.
