It is unbelievable that Megan Rapinoe declares at her farewell game that there is no God.

Throughout her career, U.S. soccer star Megan Rapinoe has never been one to mince words.

And with her final game ending after just six minutes due to a torn Achilles, you knew she wouldn’t hold back.

“I’m not a religious person or anything and if there was a god, like, this is proof that there isn’t,” Rapinoe said. “This is f up. It’s just f***ed up. Six minutes in and I eat my Achilles.”

Rapinoe, playing for OL Reign in the NWSL championship on Saturday against Gotham FC, went down mere minutes into the match, crumbling to the ground while trying to close down on an opponent.

It was immediately apparent the non-contact injury was severe, and she was helped from the pitch in tears after being attended to be trainers.

“Everyone is always like, ‘Who kicked me?’ And obviously no one was even around me, and I was pressing,” Rapinoe said, describing the injury in the post-match press conference, via The Seattle Times. “That’s what it felt like. Just a huge pop and I can’t even feel where the Achilles is, but pretty sure I tore my Achilles. The worst possible outcome.

“Thank God I have a f***ing deep well of a sense of humour. It’s devastating to go out in a final so early.”

Rapinoe had hoped to wrap up her career on a high note, having announced her pending retirement earlier in the year. With her Seattle-based team making a run to the NWSL final, it set the stage for a glorious farewell.
