LYON, France (AP) — France winger Delphine Cascarino will miss the Women’s World Cup this summer after tearing her right ACL playing for Lyon.
Cascarino left the field in tears when she was injured in Lyon’s 1-0 victory over Paris Saint Germain on Sunday to secure the French league title. Further evaluation confirmed the injury, which will require surgery, Cascarino said in a social media post.
Lyon said in a statement that the 26-year-old Cascarino would be sidelined for several months.
Cascarino has scored 14 goals in 56 appearances for her national team. She has played for Lyon since 2015, scoring 20 goals in 126 matches.
