The final match of the storied career of women’s soccer legend Megan Rapinoe did not go the way she expected on Saturday night. In fact, it went about as terribly as it possibly could have for the superstar.

During just the sixth minute of Saturday night’s matchup between her OL Reign and NJ/NY Gotham in the NWSL championship, Megan Rapinoe suffered an injury that she fears is a ruptured Achilles tendon, causing her to be unceremoniously substituted out of the game as a result.

After the game, Rapinoe described the injury as “devastating” and “the worst possible outcome” for what was supposed to be a celebratory occasion.

“It felt like just a huge pop,” Rapinoe said after the game according to ESPN. “The worst possible outcome. I just thank god I have like a [freaking] deep well of sense of humor. But yeah, I mean, just obviously devastating to go out in the final so early.”

It’s obviously horrible news for a player who has meant so much to women’s soccer over the years, and it led to a lot of reactions on social media.

It’s not the way she wanted her final professional game to end, but it’s safe to say that she left a lasting impact.
