Liverpool and Canadian International Rylee Foster who plays as a goalkeeper in the Women’s FA Championship. The 23 years old who has shown up to support her teammates in recent weeks is hoping to make an inspirational come back and resume her career.

The Canadian International Rylee Foster says she is now focused on making a full recovery after a horrific car accident in Finland left her in fear that she may never play football again.

Foster went to Finland to meet some of her friends back in November international break but unfortunately met a roadside accident which left her badly injured, including seven fractures to her neck.

Rylee Foster was subsequently fitted with a special halo device to keep her neck mobilized and initially worried that her career may have to come to a temporary end, but her prognosis is looking far more positive after a recent scan.

 

 

Rylee has been showing up to support her teammates during the recent games and has been optimistic about her return and extremely thankful for all the support she got during this tough time.

Rylee Said: 123 Days Later, Last Day with the Halo on.

 

Doctors have confirmed that Foster’s fractures are knitting together naturally with the help of the halo, which she will soon be able to remove if her recovery continues to run smoothly.

The Canada youth international has been present at Liverpool’s recent games to cheer on her team-mates and is optimistic of joining them back on the pitch in the future after a serious health scare.

 

Looking forward to the next stage of recovery, You’ll Never Walk Alone.

 

 

“I was told that my injury should have made me a tetraplegic – basically not being able to breathe or talk on my own,” she told TSN last month. “I’ll be quite honest with you, the reality of me actually being able to walk, breathe, talk on my own was significantly amazing. So, very fortunate for that.”

Her medical team is hopeful that she can make a full return to playing soccer in about a year.

“My body has responded so well to everything, considering the injuries I had,” she said prior to receiving the news about her latest scans. “I had contusions on my lung that looked like I had cancer, basically – that’s how badly destroyed they were from the accident. And they were recovered in three days. So, it’s one of those things where my body is working. It just might take a little bit longer than expected.”

“I want to do the sport I love. That’s the one thing you identify with, but to have that stripped from you and then be an outsider, it’s challenging,” she said.

“I think, for me, it was just about being able to share my experience. I’m not someone that’s really good at holding everything in,” she said. “It was also about sharing ways that I’ve learned that other people may not have been able to adapt as I could. So, I thought, ‘Well, why not share what I can do for the future people, unfortunately, who have to be in this kind of device.’”

Foster is focused on taking it day by day, TikTok by TikTok.

“I’m hopeful that this time next year, I could be on the pitch again, fully back to normal,” she said. “I don’t know… but anything can happen. And so far, miracles have happened.”
