Carmona’s low shot beat out Mary Earps and nestled in the bottom corner to give Spain the lead.

After the goal, she lifted her t-shirt to reveal a message underneath, but fans didn’t know what it said.

Taking to social media, one fan wrote, “Seriously, can anyone read Carmona’s shirt?”

Another added, “Someone who speaks Spanish tell me what word that is on Carmona’s shirt.”

A third also tweeted, “I’m more curious as to what Carmona’s t-shirt says.”

Meanwhile, another commented: “Can someone PLEASE tell me what’s on Olga Carmona’s t-shirt! My curiosity is killing me.”

Fans were soon able to tell that Carmona’s undershirt said “merchi.”

The message is an obvious message to their old school, Colegio Mercedes.


After Carmona scored the winning goal in Tuesday’s semi-final against Sweden, the school shared a message to her former student on Instagram.

Alongside a picture of the Spanish captain, they wrote: “Los Olga! Our former student made history with the Spanish women’s soccer team and scored the goal that allowed us to reach the final. For all Olga, for all of Spain!”

Carmona scored twice during the tournament at left-back to help Spain reach their first final.
