After a topsy-turvy start, Spain started to control the proceedings and eventually took the lead when captain Carmona angled a drive to the far corner to make it 1-0 to La Roja.
At half-time, England made key substitutions, bringing on Lauren James and Chloe Kelly for Alessia Russo and Rachael Daly, hoping for more bite in attack as they looked to become the first team to beat Spain at the World Cup after being a goal down.
