France midfielder Louisa Nécib reportedly left Stade du Moustoir in Lorient, France, on crutches on Sunday following her team’s 2-0 win over the United States.
Nécib exited the match in the 40th minute after suffering an apparent left ankle injury. She is expected to undergo testing on her ankle, according to L’Equipe journalist Syanie Dalmat.
Nécib could miss the potentially title-deciding match between her club, Lyon, and French league leaders PSG on Feb. 21. PSG currently sit top with 73 pts. Lyon have 68 pts. but have two games in hand. Lyon have won seven consecutive Feminine Division 1 titles.
More important for Nécib will be ensuring she is healthy for World Cup preparations.
Below is the play that caused the injury. It is unclear if the artificial turf played a role.
