For the first time ever, a women’s Finalissima was played Thursday, with England eking out a win over Brazil at Wembley Stadium in London.

The match sold out in January, nearly five months before the historic match, which pitted the CONMEBOL champion against the UEFA champion. The crowd of 83,132 ranks among the highest in women’s soccer history.

The England women’s national team entered as the favorite to win, having gone unbeaten in its previous 29 matches. Brazil, meanwhile, was coming off back-to-back losses against the USWNT and Canada at the SheBelieves Cup.

Still, both sides came ready to compete.

England’s Ella Toone provided the first strike in the 23rd minute to put the home team ahead, and it seemed like that might stand as the lone goal. But Brazil’s Andressa Alves equalized in extra time at the close of the second half, which sent the game to penalties.

The foot of Euro legend Chloe Kelly provided the deciding goal, sealing England’s 4-2 win in the penalty shootout.

Even before the match, though, the teams recognized the weight of the moment.

“It’s a great occasion,” England manager Sarina Wiegman told BBC Sports. “There will be 90,000 people, so it’s going to be a really exciting environment and two teams who want to play football with a very good history in football.”

Brazil manager Pia Sundhage, who coached the U.S. women’s national team from 2008-12, is excited for the match. She’s also excited to go up against Wiegman, who led Netherlands to the 2019 World Cup final, then led the Lionesses to their first-ever Euro title.

“I’m so appreciative and really happy to play against one of the best teams in the world with the best coach in the world,” Sundhage said. “When I was young, we didn’t have the players to look up to. And now you can mention a lot of great players and great role models and great coaches. This is the time of my life.”

Just three Finalissimas have taken place in total, but the previous three were on the men’s side. The most recent came last year as Argentina beat Italy at Wembley. Following that match, the plans came together for a women’s match this year.

“It is going to be a special night with all these people here. I feel special to have this opportunity,” Brazil captain Rafaelle Souza said. “I played in the Olympics with 70,000 people and it was amazing.

“This game will be important not just for women’s football but for me as a player. I will tell my child I played at Wembley in front of 90,000 and it will be special for me.”
