The Spanish women’s team faced a decisive match against Korea after the victory on the previous day 2-1. The #Redsticks added a point in the light thanks to a goal from Begoña García that gave them the advantage in the 12th minute of the match.
A marker that did not diminish the power of the Spanish game, which reached halfway without receiving any goal at the door and with a green card for each of the teams in the last five minutes of the fourth.
In the second half of the game the Spanish, with the invaluable support of the fans that filled the Valencian stadium, managed to maintain the difference over Korea.
In a process that has not been simple, in the third quarter, Begoña García herself received a yellow card that sent her five minutes off the field. Still, Adrian Lock’s pupils were able to maintain the high level of play.
A local team that managed to strengthen their victory in the last quarter with the penalty stroke executed by the Valencian Lola Riera. With this point in the 56th minute, and despite a yellow card to Júlia Pons in the last minute of the match, the Spanish confirmed their victory and move to the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
