Racing Louisville’s Nadia Nadim has torn her ACL, announcing the news on social media Sunday.

“Unfortunately I tore my ACL in my left knee in our last game. Obviously I’m devastated. But I have faced obstacles and rough times since I was a child- so you might say I’m an expert in overcoming them,” Nadim said.

“I was born a fighter and I know that nothing can break me down.”

Nadim’s injury comes one year after the 34-year-old first tore her ACL in Sept. 2021.

The star forward first joined Racing Louisville in June 2021, notching three goals and one assist before incurring the season-ending injury.

With six goals in seven starts, Nadim is Louisville’s leading goal scorer through the 2022 campaign. Her absence is a considerable blow to Racing Louisville, with the club 11th in the NWSL standings and on the outside looking in of a postseason push.

Louisville has two matches reaming on its regular season calendar as the club looks to improve upon its 3-9-8 record.
