Spain’s dramatic journey at the World Cup


Before the start of the World Cup, it would have been almost impossible for anyone to predict that Spain would emerge as the eventual winner at the end of the tournament. What seemed like another international disaster going into the World Cup, has undergone a complete turnaround as Spain is crowned world champions.

La Roja went to the World Cup with a broken locker room. A feud between some of the players and the head coach, Jorge Vilda, saw 15 players refuse to represent the national team. With the World Cup squad selection, some of those players reneged on their pledge and traveled to Australia and New Zealand with the team.

The broken off-field relationship was the reason Spain was eliminated early in the European Championship last year. However, the Spanish national team has turned the tables, leaving the rift between them behind and going on to win the World Cup in dramatic fashion.

Spain won their first two group stage games and lost their last one to Japan to qualify for the round of 16. 

In the round of 16, Spain breezed past Switzerland 5-1 to progress to their first-ever quarterfinal in the Women’s World Cup, a feat never before achieved by the team. However, the quarterfinal was not going to be the end of their historic run, as they defeated the Netherlands in extra time, securing a 2-1 victory to advance to the semifinals.

The semifinals put them up against seasoned semifinalists, Sweden, who have been at that stage three times before. However, La Roja survived again defeating Sweden 2-1 to progress to the final of the World Cup.

Facing the hurdle of the Lionesses of England in the final, Spain took revenge on their eliminators in the European championship last summer, defeating them by a single goal and ending up as the winners of the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup.
