Megan Rapinoe from OL Reign said leaving the NWSL championship early due to injury was the worst thing for her last game. She felt a pop in her leg during the sixth minute, feared it was an Achilles injury, and found it devastating to exit the final so soon.
It seemed like the injury was located in her right ankle area, towards the back of her leg, hinting at a possible Achilles injury. Upon reviewing the game footage, it appears that Rapinoe communicated to Rose Lavelle that the injury specifically involves the Achilles.
Megan Rapinoe has been accused of leading the USWNT in a “shameful” snub of the national anthem at the 2023 World Cup.
