Copper Queens goalie Hazel Nali has successfully undergone operation at a hospital in New Zealand.
Speaking in a telephone interview, Nali says she is happy the operation was successful and now looks forward to a full recovery.
The player will remain in the facility overnight and is due to be discharged tomorrow.
Nali will be subjected to rehabilitation after five days from date of the procedure.
The 2022 WAFCON bronze medalist will remain in New Zealand for a few weeks before returning home where she will be recuperating.
Nali has expressed gratitude to everyone who has stood with her during a challenging career setback period.
The former Green Buffaloes player missed the World Cup after she picked a knee injury during a training camp in Germany.
According to experts, full recovery of an ACL injury takes between six to 12 months.
