Maria Thorisdottir has sustained a long-term midfoot injury. As a result, she will be unable to participate in the remainder of the 2022/23 season. In the coming days, Maria will work with our medical team on her rehabilitation, and we are looking forward to seeing her back in red. The club confirmed this today.
🚨 A foot injury suffered earlier this month against Lewes means Maria Thorisdottir is out for the rest of the season. No official word on the World Cup but that is also hugely in doubt for her.#MUWomen

Following her injury, Maria said, “I have been knocked down many times before, and I will bounce back even stronger and better than ever. Tough times don’t last, but tough people do. See you next season, Reds.”
It is a bitter blow to Marc Skinner and her team. This is as they compete for the Women’s Super League title and the Women’s FA Cup in the season’s closing months.
Manchester United will play Brighton & Hove Albion in the Women’s FA Cup semi-finals. Manchester United advanced to the semi-finals with a 3-1 victory over Championship side Lewes. The first half began with Rhian Cleverly’s own goal and a Vilde Boe Risa goal before Emily Kraft equalized. Nikita Parris scored the winning goal in the 89th minute to defeat Lewes. On the other hand, Brighton beat Birmingham 2-0 at StAndrew’ss to book their semi-final spot thanks to first-half goals from Poppy Pattinson and Danielle Carter
