The Spanish world football champions and their Swedish opponents sent a strong message ahead of their Nations League match on Friday in Gothenburg: sexual assault and macho behaviour such as Luis Rubiales' forced kiss to Jenni Hermoso, "it's over".
The 22 players posed behind a common banner with the slogan "Se Acabo", "it's over", adding that the fight of the Spanish internationals was "a global fight" for equality between men and women, in sport and in society.
Just before this strong gesture, the Spanish women raised their fists in their official photo to reveal bandages on their wrists.

Most wrote the same message "Se Acabo" in felt, while others simply marked "Jenni" or Jennifer Hermoso's number 10, not summoned by the new coach Montse Tomé for this match to "protect her".
Nine of the 23 world champions, who refused to return to the national team since the Rubiales affair, asking for profound changes within the Spanish Football Federation, are finally starters at kick-off.
