Arsenal striker Vivianne Miedema is due to undergo surgery after rupturing her anterior cruciate ligament.
Arsenal say Miedema will be out for “a long period” following her surgery in the coming days.
Writing on social media, Miedema said she was “absolutely disgusted”.
“It was one of those moments where I knew right away,” she said.
“There are so many things going through your mind. I won’t be able to help my team anymore this season, no World Cup, surgery and rehabilitation for a long time.”
Miedema is the latest Arsenal player to be ruled out with a ruptured ACL after England striker Beth Mead – who is also his partner – suffered the injury in November.
Miedema has scored four goals this season to help the Gunners take second place in the Women’s Super League as they top Champions League Group C with one game to play.
“It will be difficult with a lot of difficult days,” she added. “There will be a lot of crying, which we’ve had a lot before, but unfortunately that’s part of football.
“I’m blessed to have amazing teammates, friends and family around me and Beth who can guide me through whatever’s to come while only being a few weeks ahead of the game. me.”
The club said in a statement: “Everyone at Arsenal wishes Viv well in her recovery and will provide her with all the support she needs to return to action as soon as possible.”
