New Mexico soccer player Elizabeth Lambert, who made headlines this week after footage of her playing dirty spread across the internet, has said in a statement that she “regrets” her actions.
“I am deeply and wholeheartedly regretful for my actions. My actions were uncalled for. I let my emotions get the best of me in a heated situation,” Lambert said in the statement. “I take full responsibility for my actions and accept and punishment felt necessary from the coaching staff and UNM administration.”
After first being highlighted on ESPN’s Sport Center, the Elizabeth Lambert video has continued to go viral…which is highly understandable given that it shows a staggeringly large amount of foul play.
