Having a “torn acl” is just about the worst kind of nightmare that an athlete can have. Most often, these injuries occur when pivoting or landing from a jump. With a minimum of 6 month recovery period and wearing a knee brace for torn acl, athletes who suffer from this kind of injury are usually decommissioned from playing and just settle themselves from watching the game on the benches. For really dedicated athletes, this is already like missing dozens of opportunities for their future sports career.
That’s why I always pray for my favorite Philippine Football team, the Azkals! Not only to win, but to always finished a safe game with no one getting injured. As well as the opponent team of course 😀
