Olga Carmona, Spain’s captain, and World Cup final hero received heartbreaking news after guiding Spain to their first Women's World Cup triumph with a key goal in the 29th minute against England. The Spanish Football Association (RFEF) said on Sunday that Carmona found out about her father's death after the game.

Spain's captain handed them the lead in the 29th minute, and on Sunday, they went on to win the tournament for the first time. Spanish midfielders Aitana Bonmati and Teresa Abelleira exerted complete control over the game. If England goalkeeper Mary Earps had not saved Jennifer Hermosos' second-half penalty, the margin of victory may have been larger.

In the middle of all the joy and excitement, the Spanish captain received some heartbreaking news.

Carmona's father had been enduring a lengthy illness and had passed on the previous Friday. However, for their beloved captain to focus on the most important match of her career, Carmona's family and close friends opted not to notify her of this heartbreaking loss.

The RFEF regrets having to let you know that Olga Carmona's father passed away. The Spanish FA said on social media that the football player found out the awful news after the World Cup final. 

"In this terrible moment, Olga and her family have our deepest sympathies."We adore you, Olga; you are a part of Spanish soccer history."

 For Carmona's World Cup group stage, her mother and brothers had travelled to New Zealand. They returned to Spain immediately after receiving the dreadful news.

They landed in Australia on Saturday, just in time to cheer on the Real Madrid fullback as she played in the final and helped Spain clinch a historic triumph.
