“Here you have the star that you wanted so much”, the player Olga Carmona told the masses.
After midnight, the open-top bus with the players of the women’s soccer team arrived at the Puente del Rey esplanade; where a sea of red and yellow flags greeted them with the cry of Champions.
After an endless flight from Australia to Spain, the red was received with all the honors in Madrid, completely surrendered at his feet.
The more than thirty degrees in the environment did not stop any of the 20,000 attendees to dance and celebrate to the rhythm of the music.
In the same place where the Spanish men’s team was proclaimed world champion in South Africa 2010, Jennifer Hermoso, Salma Paralluelo and the rest of the team left their mark on the new Spanish star, that of Australia and New Zealand.
Olga Carmona, who scored the winning goal against England, going from hero to legend; she took the floor on stage.
“Yesterday at times was the best day of my life and then it turned into the worst. I am very excited to bring this joy to the whole country. You have this star, but not only the one on our chests, the ones on the Heaven too,” she said emotionally to the player, who didn’t find out that her father had passed away until the game was over.
“This is also yours. We said that we were going to put you on your feet and today we have achieved it”, declared the Spanish coach Jorge Vilda.
Clearly proud, the 23 soccer players are aware that they have not only made history by winning the women’s world cup for the first time, but that with their triumph, they have been able to change the thinking of future generations.
