Spain’s Jennifer Hermoso and Redondo were the stars of the game alongside the Video Assistant Referee, VAR. 

Spain enjoyed an easy ride against Zambia.

Redondo picked up a brace alongside Hermoso whose goals saw her record a landmark, her 49th and 50th goals for Spain.

Hermoso also picked up an assist after she set up Teresa Abelleira to open the floodgate of goals.
