Football Fern Ria Percival says she’s “moving forward in the right direction” as she continues her recovery from a season-ending knee injury.

The 33-year-old defensive midfielder is back training with her English club Tottenham Hotspur for the first time in eight months after the 161-cap international was badly injured in New Zealand’s 2-1 loss to Australia in Canberra on April 12.

“At the time it was like, I knew it was serious,” she said.”From the moment it happened, obviously your first thought is the World Cup.”
