England beat Spain 3-1 in the first ever final of the Women’s Euro Beach Soccer League which was played in Portugal.
Spain had previously beaten the Lionesses in the World Beach Games Final but goalkeeper Hannah Haughton helped keep them at bay.
The breakthrough was made with a solo effort from debutant Anne Meiwald, then it was 2-0 to England thanks to an own-goal from a misplaced back-pass.
Tournament top-scorer Fresneda reduced the arrears from a penalty but England restored their two-goal advantage also with a spot-kick as Molly Clark converted.
Russia hit Switzerland for six in the third-place play-off, Ukraine took fifth spot with a 2-0 defeat of the Czech Republic.
