LONDON (AP) — A women’s soccer game between Manchester United and Charlton was abandoned Sunday after an injury to a player.
Charlton winger Charlotte Kerr was hurt in a collision as United took the lead in the 10th minute of the second-tier FA Women’s Championship match.
Charlton said players returned to the locker rooms as Kerr was treated on the field and they waited for an ambulance to arrive with one not already on site at the stadium in Kent, near London.
