Scene of dread at the Louis-Duguauguez stadium this Tuesday, during France-Greece. In the 37th minute of the match, Griedge Mbock injured herself on an action where she was in a duel with Veatriki Sarri. His right leg crashed into the ground, and his right knee gave way completely.
Players in tears
A huge scream was heard, and the players of the France team immediately realized the seriousness of the 27-year-old’s injury. Corinne Deacon entered the lawn to be closer to the Lyonnaise. The game was interrupted for almost ten minutes, with several French players in tears, in shock, before Mbock was evacuated on a stretcher.
She returned to the field in September 2021, after more than a year of absence due to a ruptured Achilles tendon and a relapse.
