For the first time in the country's history, Spain has reached the semifinals of the Women's World Cup after defeating the Netherlands 2-1 in extra-time.
The news was happily received by men's tennis No. 1 Carlos Alcaraz, who congratulated the team for making the semifinals and urged the players to go for more at the tournament.
Spain has enjoyed a fantastic turnaround at the World Cup having been thrashed 4-0 by Japan in the group stages.
"You always dream of a moment like this," coach Jorge Vilda told FIFA after the quarterfinal victory against the Netherlands.
"We’ve reached the semifinals for the first time, we’re among the four best in the world, but we’re not going to stop. Today, yes, celebrate, but tomorrow we will prepare for the semifinals because we want to be in the final."
