Spain’s 1-0 victory over England on Sunday was the most-watched Women’s World Cup final on American television that did not include the United States. La Roja’s 1-0 victory had a combined English- and Spanish-language audience of 2,059,000 on Fox and Telemundo.

There are a lot of “firsts” at this year’s Women’s World Cup. It’s the first time 32 nations will compete, several making their World Cup debut, and it’s the first time two countries will play host. Also, it’s the first year the United States women’s national team will play under new equal pay agreements. But also among the firsts are several familiarities. Brazil’s Marta returns to solidify her place as the all-time top scorer in the competition. The U.S. is defending its title (for the second time in a row). And soccer legend Megan Rapinoe is making her final world cup appearance.
