SPAIN’S World Cup matchwinner learned after the final that her father had died, which was sad.

Olga Carmona scored the game-winning goal against England and was afterwards photographed gleefully kissing the trophy.

But hours afterwards the left-back was told of the family tragedy.

A statement from the Spanish FA said: “The @RFEF deeply regrets to report the death of Olga Carmona’s father. The soccer player learned the sad news after the World Cup final.

“We send our most sincere hugs to Olga and her family in a moment of deep pain.

“We love you, Olga, you are the history of Spanish football.”

Real Madrid star Carmona, 23, has a 24-year-old brother, Fran, who plays as a centre-back for Sevilla C.

Fans on social media sent their sympathy.

One posted: “This is such a heartbreaking news. This was supposed to be the best day of her life. She made her father proud.”

Another wrote: “Can’t imagine how those feelings mix, awful to hear. RIP.”

A third said of her father: “At least he saw his daughter reach the World Cup final and score in the semis.”

Carmona’s goal on 29 minutes won Spain their first Women’s World Cup title.

As Jorge Vilda’s Spaniards rightfully won, Lionesses goalkeeper Mary Earps saved a penalty from Jenni Hermoso.
