Limage was reaching for a high ball when she struck hard by midfielder Samantha Marie-Ann Brand in the second half of Haiti's 6-0 loss. Limage fell to the ground in pain, still clutching the ball.

Limage was carried off the field on a hand-held stretcher and treated near the Haiti bench for much of the second half. Then she was immobilized on a hospital stretcher and taken from the stadium.

Coach Ronald Luxieux said through a translator that the 26-year-old Limage was "suffering quite a bit" and that "it might be a spinal injury." He said he expected to have an update Friday.

Limage lives in Canada and plays for the University of Moncton in New Brunswick.
