By: FPJ Web Desk | October 27, 2022

Spain, which reached its third final at this level, can now defend its crown at the DY Patil Stadium on Sunday

Both teams, Spain and Germany delivered with a full-throttle approach from the start to finish

In the 20th minute, Alber hit a stunning volley into the net, but the goal was disallowed after a lengthy VAR check of over five minutes

In the second half, Spain substitute Olaya Enrique’s whizzed a free-kick over the crossbar

In the 75th minute, Alber twisted and turned away from her markers before unleashing a shot, which was pouched low by Fuente on the second attempt

Spain’s two substitutes, Lucia Corrales and creator Ainhoa Alguacil, combined to deliver the killer blow

Alguacil skillfully evaded her marker and fired in a low cross around the six-yard area, where Corrales guided it into the net with the outside of her side foot

Corrales turned super-sub as her goal downed a resolute Germany in the semifinal
