Simone Magill sustained a bad injury against Norway

I am sure that Simone Magill would’ve loved to have been on the back pages of all the newspapers and the focus of so much media attention during the Women’s Euro 2022 finals – but not in the way that it has very sadly turned out.

Being in the spotlight as she has been since Northern Ireland opened the tournament with that 4-1 defeat to Norway on Thursday night, when she left the pitch after 80 minutes having suffered what has now been confirmed as a cruciate ligament injury, must be very hard for her especially in the midst of this historic first major tournament.
