In a crucial news update from England’s Lionesses, it has been confirmed that FC Barcelona Femeni and England midfielder Keira Walsh have not suffered an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury. The news comes after a thorough scan was conducted late on Saturday afternoon following the midfielder’s substitution during Friday’s 1-0 victory against Denmark in the 2023 FIFA Women’s world cup.

The injury scare had raised concerns among fans and team management of both club and country, but the latest assessment provides a sigh of relief for everyone involved. While Keira Walsh’s condition is not as severe as initially feared, the midfielder will still be sidelined for England’s final Group D match against China in Adelaide on Tuesday.

It is reported that the FC Barcelona Femeni and England midfielder will remain at England’s training base in Terrigal, where she will continue her recovery under the close supervision of the medical staff. Her injury will be closely monitored and assessed during this time, but no further details have been released at this stage.

The 25-year-old’s presence has been vital for England and the Catalan club, and her absence will undoubtedly be felt on the pitch. She is known for her exceptional tactical awareness in the middle of the pack. The English midfielder has been a key component of the Lionesses’ strategies and also in the club team as she was able to settle in and form a great partnership with Aitana Bonmati and Patri Guijarro in her first season.

Both England and Barcelona Femeni fans will be keeping their fingers crossed for her swift recovery, hoping to see her back in action soon. Until then, the team will be looking to adapt their strategies and ensure to produce a strong performance and continue winning in her absence.

While Keira Walsh’s return date remains uncertain, her recovery will be a top priority for the England camp. With the knockout stages approaching, the focus will be on her rehabilitation to ensure she can rejoin the squad for future matches.
