The Beginning

The game was 45 minutes into the hour and I was on a roll. I had scored 4 goals and was keen to get another. I found myself outside my own penalty area waiting for my keeper to roll the ball out to me. There was no one around me. I was standing still. I went to push off with my elft foot to start a run and then “POP!” I heard a very loud pop and felt like someone had kicked me very hard in the back of my heel. I fell to the floor with a pain in the back of my leg. I wasn’t sure what had happened at first but when I tried to stand back up again I knew that something serious had just happened.
