  • Dismissals The Federation also dismisses the head of Integrity of Rubiales

The players of Spain and Sweden knew themselves in the center of all eyes and did not hesitate to take advantage of it to launch a double message.

To the world, with a pose united behind a banner that read "#Se Finished. Our fight is the global fight." To Jenni Hermoso the other, posing with a closed fist, empowered, with a tape as a bracelet on the wrist on which each one wrote 'It's over' next to a 10, the number that the vallecana wore in the World Cup.

The internationals respected all the protocol acts to which UEFA obliged, serious in the anthems, with exchange of pennants, but when it was time to pose, the Spaniards, who had already raised their voices, showed their wrists remembering who was missing. It was then that Alexia, who did not act as captain despite the fact that in the official lineups she appeared like that, looked for the banner, unfolded it and the Swedes embraced.

There were not only gestures on the lawn. The stands also responded. Since Spain got off the bus upon arrival at Gamla Ullevi received the respect of the Swedish fans with applause and shouts of encouragement. In the entertainment area of the stadium, home of the Swedish women's team and full for debut in the Nations League, two banners could also be read. One with the motto that for football is equivalent to #MeToo: "It's over" and another with a sense 'With you. Jenny and La Roja" and a Swedish flag.

Although the ball returned to take center stage, nobody forgets what the world champions have lived in this month that should have been of continuous celebration.
