Brazilian left back Karoline Helena de Souza suffered a serious knee injury in the preparation period for the season 2016/17. She signed Hungarian club Ipress Center-Vác for the season, together with fellow Brazilians Barbara Arenhart and Alexandra do Nascimento, and while the other two are competing at the biggest sports stage of the world, she was preparing for the new season with her new club. However, the 26-year-old was not lucky in her new station: they played a preparation match with MTK Budapest (30-22 for Vác) and in the last minute of the game, she landed badly after a shot and injured her knee. MRI examinations showed that she suffered an ACL rupture so she will be sidelined for at least six months. We wish her a full and speedy recovery!
