The routes taken by Spain arrive in Women’s World Cup Final

Spain’s tournament got off to a brutal start. In its first two games, La Roja scored eight goals while giving up none. Spain, however, came in second place in its group as a result of a devastating 4-0 defeat to Japan.

After Switzerland’s first-ever knockout triumph, a 5-1 round-of-16 victory over Jorge Vilda’s team, closer matches against the Netherlands and Sweden in the quarterfinal and semifinal followed.

After overtime, Spain defeated the Netherlands 2-1. Spain beat Sweden 2-1 in the semifinals to get to the final for the first time. In the 89th second, the winner appeared.

The Lionesses finished first in their group with three victories out of three games despite not playing at their best. The Lionesses appeared to have discovered their killer instinct in their final group stage match against China, winning 6-1.

However, Sarina Wiegman’s team narrowly defeated Nigeria on penalties before defeating Colombia 2-1 in the quarterfinals, therefore England was unable to maintain its momentum into the elimination rounds.

An improved performance against the co-host Australia in the semifinal saw England defeat the Matildas 3-1.

Who will be the deciding factor?

Super sub in Spain

In the quarterfinal and semifinal matchups, head coach Vilda had to look to his bench for some much-needed motivation as Spain was failing to find its mojo.

Salma Paralluelo was chosen by Vilda, and it is safe to assume that the gifted girl was the key to La Roja’s success.

The 19-year-old had an impact off the bench in both of Spain’s most recent World Cup games, scoring crucial goals in the quarterfinal against the Netherlands in the 111th minute and the semifinal against Sweden in the 81st minute.

Will the manager continue to use the tried-and-true method of releasing the Barcelona winger off the bench, or will Vilda start Paralluelo?

England’s tactical experimentation

Due to injury, England entered the World Cup without several important players. Through the course of the competition, tactics have also evolved, with head coach Wiegman switching from the well-known 4-3-3 configuration to a 3-5-2 formation, and performances have improved as a result.

One of the players who will gain the most from this tactical adjustment is Lauren Hemp, an energetic forward.

The Manchester City forward struggled early on in the World Cup, but ever since she moved up front with Alessia Russo, Hemp has been England’s best performer.

The 23-year-old’s speed and cunning have been fully on display, and never more so than in the semifinal victory over Australia. Her speed on the break was essential to England’s historic victory; Hemp concluded with a goal and an assist in the 3-1 victory.
