The Daily Merengue is a place where you can feel free to discuss all things football. Do not be alarmed by the overt RMCF bias. It’s in the name!

Spain are World Champions..........Again!!
First it was Casillas raising the trophy as Spain made history in 2010 and now the Spanish women with Olga Carmona have made history as well beating England 1-0 in the final to win their maiden world cup. 8 Madridistas were in the squad with 4 taking part in the final. Olga Carmona was named as the MVP of the World Cup Final for her match winning strike. Her winning goal also decided the semi-final. What a tournament from the young left back.
Congratulations to Esther Gonzalez, Olga Carmona, Misa, Oihane Hernandez, Rocio Gálvez, Ivana Andres, Claudia Zornoza, Teresa Abelleira & Athenea del Castillo for winning the World Cup with Spain! pic.twitter.com/xTeS6goBqh— Madrid Xtra (@MadridXtra) August 20, 2023
