Spanish Women Make History with Nations League Victory Over France
In a thrilling win at the inaugural Women's Nations League, World Cup victors Spain defeated France 2-0 in Seville, adding a second major trophy to their collection in just six months. The game saw goals from Aitana Bonmati and Mariona Caldentey, sealing a convincing victory for Spain on home turf.

The first goal came 32 minutes into the game with a close-range hit by Ballon d'Or winner, Bonmati. Shortly after the break, Caldentey delivered a crisp, first-time finish, wrapping up the victory for Spain. Despite the efforts of the French side managed by Herve Renard, they scarcely threatened the Spanish team and failed to deliver any shots on target, resulting in a comfortable win for the Spanish.

A record was also broken during the match with an announced attendance of 32,657 at Estadio La Cartuja; it's the largest crowd ever to watch the Spanish women's national team, eclipsing the previous record set during a semifinal game against the Netherlands.

This victory further solidifies Spain's golden run of form. Despite 13 previous encounters with France where Spain could not secure a win, this win underscored Spain's domination from the very start. With their consistent winning streak, the world's number one ranked side now has their sights set on the 2024 Olympics. The team has won 18 of their last 20 fixtures and finished top scorers in both World Cup and Nations League with the highest average possession in both tournaments.
