    “We’re devastated. Bright stated, “We gave it our all, but today we just weren’t there.

    “The girls are amazing. At the beginning of the competition, we faced a lot of criticism, and some people lost faith in us, but we never let that happen.

    “We had complete faith, but football can sometimes work in your favor and sometimes against you.

    “We took part in a World Cup championship game. We’ll enjoy this day and finishing second in a few weeks, but it’s difficult to accept because we’re winners and want to win.

    But after Carmona’s goal broke the tie after 29 minutes, Spain had little opposition.

    “In the first half, we weren’t at our best,” Bright continued. “In the second half, we undoubtedly recovered, displayed grit, spirit, and chances.

    “We hit the bar, but today we just lacked that extra edge, and they put theirs in the net obviously.”
