An engrossing Women’s World Cup reaches its culmination as Spain take on England in the Final at Stadium Australia at 11:00 am UK time on Sunday morning.
The Lionesses defeated La Roja 2-1 after extra-time in the Euro 2022 quarter-final en route to winning the tournament, but they’re 20/21 outsiders to lift another trophy in Sydney.

90 mins draw must be a big runner in clash of evenly-matched teams
Spain and England have faced off four times in the last four years. The Lionesses won 2-1 in 2019, before La Roja triumphed 1-0 a year later. They played out a 0-0 draw in the Arnold Clark Cup in 2022, before Sarina Wiegman’s side won their Euro 2022 last eight clash 2-1 after extra time.
A third successive normal-time draw looks the pick of the match betting as a result. Both sides have already been taken into the additional half hour once in this tournament and they could well be set for more with the World Cup on the line.
Two quality attacks leave little chance of clean sheets being kept
It’s hard to fathom how both teams to score – yes can be the outsider in that market given the bet has clicked in all three of Spain’s knockout ties at the tournament and England’s quarter and semi-final wins.
Spain are the World Cup’s top scorers and average 2.7 goals per game in Australia and New Zealand, while England have hit five goals in their last two matches.
Expect more late drama in an echo of sides’ thrilling Euro ‘22 quarter-final
The Euro 2022 last eight clash between these teams saw Spain take the lead in the 54th minute before England equalised in the 84th to take the game in extra time and the way La Roja’s last two knockout ties have gone gives us strong reason to suspect the greater share of goals may land after the interval.
Jorge Vilda’s team went ahead in the 81st minute against the Netherlands in their last eight clash, only to be pegged back in the 91st minute. Against Sweden there was even more late drama – they took the lead in the 81st, shipped an equaliser in the 88th and scored the winner in the 89th.
In a tournament where second half-injury time has often taken on epic proportions, it’s well worth siding with the second-half seeing goals at both ends.
