WATCH: De Vanna’s water-bottle struggle is real

Friends look out for friends. Teammates look out for teammates — especially captains.

Australia suffered heartbreaking defeat at the hands of Brazil on Friday in a penalty shootout. Before exiting the tournament, in one of the most gripping and entertaining 0-0 draws you’ll see, there was a now viral water break.

Matildas captain Lisa De Vanna, possibly a little light-headed from the exhausting match, was having trouble figuring out how exactly to get water out of the bottle. Thankfully, Elise Kellond-Knight was there for her:

    Kellond-Knight is integral to Australia, not only does she play a key role in keeping De Vanna hydrated, she’s also a quality player.

      Whether a pinpoint pass to break a defense or the top end of a water bottle, Kellond-Knight sees everything on the pitch, and is quick to react as well!

    KK doesn’t want to be sprayed in the face. Looking out for herself, clearly.

      “First I have to play left back, now you’re gonna spray me? Come on Lisa!”

    Okay, now we can substantiate why USWNT looked so tired and disjointed at the Olympics games.
