VfL Wolfsburg Women must do without Rebecka Blomqvist for a lengthy period of time after the striker tore the anterior cruciate ligament in her right knee during Sunday’s DFB Cup meeting against 1. FFC Turbine Potsdam. The extent of the injury was revealed by a scan on Monday. Blomqvist twisted her knee in a challenge for the ball after around half an hour of the cup game and had to be substituted.
It’s not currently possible to say how long she will be out for. A visit to a specialist in Berlin is set to follow, where the next steps will be agreed.
