Aitana Bonmatí won the 2023 World Cup Golden Ball award after Spain’s victory on Sunday, the honours for best player of the tournament.

More Details

Silver Ball went to Bonmatí’s Spain teammate Jenni Hermoso, and Bronze Ball to Sweden’s Amanda Ilestedt.

Spain’s Salma Paralluelo took home the Best Young Player Award, and England’s Mary Earps earned the Golden Glove.

No semifinalist could surpass the five goals and one assist tallied by Japan’s Hinata Miyazawa, who won the tournament’s Golden Boot.

Silver Boot went to France’s Kadidatou Diani (four goals, one assist) and Bronze Boot to Germany’s Alexandra Popp (four goals).

“We deserve it. We deserve it,” Bonmatí said after the match.

“Everyone is competitive. Everyone has a strong mentality to win. We have been working a lot of years for this moment and we have it. We have the trophy.”


Spain won their first Women’s World Cup title on Sunday, stifling England in a 1-0 victory over the reigning European champions.

Olga Carmona opened the scoring in the 29th minute, and the Lionesses never fully recovered enough to find an equaliser.

While the win comes in Spain’s third appearance at the senior World Cup, they have been laying the groundwork.

World Cup wins at the U-17 and U-20 levels in 2018 and 2022 set the roster up for the right balance of experience and youth.

Spain players have also enjoyed success and built chemistry on their club teams, most notably at FC Barcelona and Real Madrid.

The win shined the spotlight back on federation dysfunction, unpopular manager Jorge Vilda, and those who chose not to participate in the tournament in protest.
