"I'm not a religious person or anything, and if there was a God, this is proof that there isn't. This is f***ed up," Rapinoe said in her post-match interview. The injury occurred when she was running towards Maitane Lopez of Gotham before inconspicuously falling to the ground with a non-contact injury. "For sure, I tore my Achilles," she claimed as she said she felt a "huge pop".

"I wasn't overly emotional about it,' Rapinoe added. "I mean, f***ing yeeted my Achilles in the sixth minute in my last game ever in the literal championship game." She lamented the fact that she now has to go through rehab as what she described as a "NARP".

"I guess I just rode until the wheels came right off! Now I'm just a NARP, a normal-ass regular person, having to do rehab which is f***ing devastating."
