After Spain’s World Cup win, attention is once again on the country’s federation dysfunction at the highest level.

More Details

FA president Luis Rubiales was seen non-consensually kissing Spain midfielder Jenni Hermoso as she received her World Cup medal.

The Spain federation (RFEF) then reportedly concocted a statement on Hermoso’s behalf downplaying the incident, despite her saying she didn’t “enjoy” the display on Instagram Live.

Rubiales has come under fire since the incident, with some calling for his resignation.

Yolanda Díaz, Spain’s acting second deputy prime minister, said: “Nothing more and nothing less, a woman has been harassed and assaulted.”

Also haunting Spain's post-win proceedings are the 12 players who declined to be selected for the tournament due to issues with RFEF and coach Jorge Vilda.

“I want the whole world to react and I want something to happen because it’s clear that there are problems in RFEF," said Sweden captain Caroline Seger.

"If people think it’s not wrong, it’s just not acceptable!”

“Yesterday was the best and worst day of my life,” Carmona wrote on social media the next day.

“I know that you would want to see me enjoying this historic moment, so that’s why I’ll be with my teammates, so that from where you are you know that this star is also yours, dad.”

Carmona said her father gave her “the strength to achieve something unique.
