Matildas star Elise Kellond-Knight has confirmed she's facing a lengthy stint on the sidelines after rupturing an ACL over the weekend.
Matilda Elise Kellond-Knight has suffered more injury woe, rupturing an ACL over the weekend in Sweden.
The 29-year-old was only minutes into a Damallsvenskan match between Kristianstads and Rosengard on Sunday when she sustained the injury.
"Well that sucks. Confirmed ACL," Kellond-Knight tweeted.
"The last 12 months were already the toughest by far... but looks like things can always get worse."
It's the second time Kellond-Knight has suffered an ACL injury after a similar setback in 2011.
The midfielder also had several injury concerns leading into last year's World Cup in France.
Kristianstad manager Albert Sigurdsson confirmed Kellond-Knight would miss the remainder of the club's season.
"It's a heavy loss," he told the Kristianstadsbladet newspaper.
