Overcoming setbacks is nothing new for Canadian women's team forward Deanne Rose. Rose, a native of Alliston, Ont., made the decision in 2014 to quit the sport after being cut from Canada's Under-15 team, which at the time was overseen by current senior team coach Bev Priestman.

A promising career appeared to have ended before it even started. But her life took an unexpected turn when she was invited to train with Canada's Under-17 side in 2015.

Things went so well that by the end of the year she earned her first cap for Canada's senior side as a 16-year-old. She's been a mainstay of the national team ever since, her rise to the top as an Olympic champion capping off an amazing comeback that is a tribute to her strength of character.

However, Rose, now 23, will have to show similar resolve as she faces a major injury crisis. Last weekend, she was forced off the pitch a mere 20 minutes into Reading FC's opening match of the English Women's Super League season against Manchester United.
