Megan Rapinoe suffered a devastating injury on her last ever game in football.
While she bid farewell to playing for the US national women's team back in September, she still had commitments to the National Women’s Soccer League Championship.
OL Reign played against Gotham FC over the weekend and Rapinoe went down in the sixth minute of the game due to a suspected Achilles injury.
It certainly didn't help that her team ended up losing the match as well.
It was definitely not the way she would have wanted to end her career.
And she made it very well known in the post-match press conference how she felt.
“I’m not a religious person or anything and if there was a god, like, this is proof that there isn’t,” Rapinoe said, according to Fox News.
“This is f**ked up. It’s just f**ked up. Six minutes in and I eat my Achilles.”
In an interview with The Seattle Times, she said everyone thought she was tripped to suffer an injury like that.
"Obviously, no one was even around me, and I was pressing,” Rapinoe explained.
“That’s what it felt like.
"Just a huge pop and I can’t even feel where the Achilles is, but pretty sure I tore my Achilles.
"The worst possible outcome.
“Thank God I have a f**king deep well of a sense of humor. It’s devastating to go out in a final so early.”
But as Oasis once said, 'don't look back in anger'.
Rapinoe has had an incredible career and will be considered one of the greats for a very long time.
She managed to rack up 66 club goals during her time in the sport, more than 60 goals on the international level, a Ballon d'Or Féminin trophy and the 2019 Best FIFA Women's Player.
