After the Women’s World Cup, Olga Carmona was notified of her father’s passing.

After delivering the decisive goal that secured Spain’s victory in the Women’s World Cup final against England, the team’s captain, Olga Carmona, faced a heart-wrenching revelation. Shortly after the game, the 23-year-old, who serves as a left-back for Real Madrid, received the sombre news of her father’s passing. According to a report by Reuters, Carmona’s father had been engaged in a prolonged battle with illness, eventually succumbing to it on Friday.

Carmona’s role in propelling Spain to triumph was unmistakable. With her solitary goal, she propelled her team to a victory over England, culminating in their claim to the coveted trophy. Following the game, Carmona took to social media to express her emotions in a poignant post. Accompanied by an image capturing her tenderly kissing her victor’s medal, she shared her sentiments: “I know you have been watching me tonight and that you are proud of me. Rest in peace, dad.”

In a reflection of the bittersweet nature of the moment, Carmona also acknowledged an unexpected layer of symbolism. She revealed that even before the game commenced, she had her own “star,” a reference to the gold star that is traditionally added to the jerseys of World Cup champions, situated above the national team emblem. Carmona expressed her gratitude for the strength her father had imbued within her, enabling her to achieve something remarkable.

The Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) conveyed its condolences and grief to Carmona and her family. Acknowledging the profound sorrow of the moment, the RFEF regretfully shared the news of her father’s passing and sent their heartfelt support to Olga during this trying time.

Throughout the Women’s World Cup, Carmona’s commitment and prowess on the field were evident. She contributed to Spain’s campaign by participating in five out of their seven matches in the tournament. In a poignant detail, it was revealed that Carmona’s family and close circle of friends had chosen to withhold the news of her father’s demise until after the final. This compassionate decision allowed her to maintain her focus and concentration on the game.
