Prior to the Women's World Cup 2023, Spain had never advanced beyond the first knockout round, but now they are just one match away from eternal glory. Spain’s route to the final saw them achieve impressive wins against Spain and Zambia in the group stage, before thrashing Switzerland in the round of 16 and then edging tight contests against Netherlands and Sweden in the quarter-finals and semi-finals. In recent matches the side has shown an aptitude for late goals, so even if England are ahead with just minutes until the final whistle, you’d be foolish to write this Spanish side off. 

England are also making their first appearance at a Women’s World Cup final having previously fallen at the semi-final stage in 2015 and 2019. The Euro 2022 champions suffered extensive injuries prior to the tournament, and haven’t always looked at their very best, but they arrive in this final with real momentum after eliminating hosts Australia in the previous round. And their biggest weapon might be off the pitch. Head coach Sarina Wiegman has made the finals in all four major international tournaments she's coached and will be hoping to guide the Lionesses to a historic World Cup title. Plus, England are also boosted by the return of Lauren James from suspension. She's eligible to play after being sent off against Nigeria for a cynical stamp. 

Any World Cup final is an unmissable occasion, and this match will bring to a close what has been an overall fantastic tournament. To see which of these teams achieves the biggest honor in the sport, you’ll need to watch a Spain vs England live stream. And we’ll show you how to watch this Women’s World Cup 2023 game online from anywhere and for free down below. 

How to watch Spain vs England anywhere

Spain vs England live streams will be shown free on a few different channels across the world, but what if you're not in your home country and want to watch it on your usual service?

The answer is to use a VPN, or virtual private network. A VPN will let you tune into your home coverage from wherever you are — meaning that if you're abroad, you can use one of the best VPN services to watch the games live as if you were in your lounge.

Our favorite right now is ExpressVPN, thanks to its combination of superb speed, great customer service and excellent device support. It also offers a no-questions-asked 30-day money-back guarantee, so you could check it out without having to sign up long-term.


Speed, security and simplicity combine to make ExpressVPN our favorite VPN service. In our testing, we were impressed by its fast connection times and by its ability to access more than 3,000 services in 160 locations across 94 countries. A 30-day money-back guarantee is another bonus.

Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, ExpressVPN is our favorite.

2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. For instance, if you're in the U.S. and want to view an Australian service, you'd select Australia from the list.

3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Head to 7Plus or another service and watch the game.
