In the first half, Walsh hit her leg on the pitch under no challenge from the Danish female team in the 35th minute of the match.

After the medical staff rushed in to attend to the injured leg, Walsh was seen telling the medical staff that “I am done with my legs.”

Even though the injury is nothing serious, she is unlikely to compete in the remaining campaign of the World Cup. However, evading the cruciate ligament tear is a blessing for the three Lionesses.
