Attard does anterior cruciate ligament

The Hockeyroos have been dealt a blow to their current World Cup and Commonwealth Games campaigns, today confirming that key defender Teneal Attard had ruptured her ACL during last night’s World Cup match against the Netherlands in Argentina.
The news is particularly devastating for Attard, as it is her third ACL injury, having only returned to the squad 12 months ago from a separate ACL injury on her left knee.
Hockeyroos coach Frank Murray said that while losing Attard is disappointing for the team, it will give others an opportunity to step up at the World Cup.
