Megan Rapinoe tears ACL in right knee

U.S. Soccer announced Saturday that Megan Rapinoe had torn the anterior cruciate ligament in her right knee during training in Honolulu on Friday, two days before the United States women's national team resumes its Victory Tour against Trinidad and Tobago.

The 30-year-old winger will return to Seattle to have surgery, but no timetable was given for her comeback.

Rapinoe suffered torn ACLs twice in college, both to her left knee, so she's gone through the recovery and rehabilitation process before. Through U.S. Soccer's press release, she let everyone know that she remains in her usual good spirits despite the "very difficult time."

"I want to thank my teammates and the staff for the amazing support I've received so far," Rapinoe said. "I know I'll be in the best of hands moving forward and I'll be doing everything I can to get healthy as soon as possible."

What the statement made so – well, so Rapinoe – was what she said in closing.

"I want everyone to know that I'll be fine, and that I'm currently accepting any recommendations for TV shows to binge watch and great restaurants that deliver in Seattle," Rapinoe said. "I'm also going to get really good at FIFA 16."
