Spain clinches historic Olympic qualification in Women's Nations League triumph

Posted : 24 February 2024

In a landmark victory, Spain's women's football team secured their ticket to the Paris 2024 Olympics with a convincing 3-0 win over the Netherlands in the Women's Nations League semi-final held in Seville. The world champions showcased their prowess, with goals from Jennifer Hermoso, Aitana Bonmati, and Ona Batlle marking a historic night for La Roja.


The breakthrough came in the 43rd minute when Jennifer Hermoso capitalized on an Aitana Bonmati pass, securing Spain's lead. Just two minutes later, Aitana Bonmati extended the advantage by converting a Mariona Caldentey cross. The victory was sealed in the 77th minute as former Manchester United full-back Ona Batlle bundled home, confirming Spain's Olympic qualification for the first time in their women's football history.


While Spain rejoices in their historic achievement, the Netherlands still has an opportunity to secure their spot in Paris 2024 if they can overcome Germany in the third-place play-off scheduled for Wednesday. The outcome of this match will determine the final participant from the Women's Nations League in the upcoming Olympics.


In the other semi-final clash, France, already assured of Olympic participation as hosts, triumphed 2-1 against Germany. Kadidiatou Diani and Sakina Karchaoui contributed goals for France, while Guilia Gwinn pulled a late goal back for Germany. The result leaves an additional Olympic slot open, intensifying the competition and anticipation leading up to the final and third-place play-off.


As the focus shifts to the culmination of the Women's Nations League, the final is set to take place in Seville on Wednesday. Simultaneously, the third-place play-off between the Netherlands and Germany will unfold in Heerenveen, determining the last Olympic qualifier from this prestigious tournament.
