"soccer", football as we know is a contact. but not as ruff as Rugby or American football. players have been killed due to injuries on the field and badly injured, your only guard is for your shin bone, because the players should be civilised!!!

um yeah I do think soccer is a very dangerous sport people have beel killed playing it even kids under 12 can get hurt but don't let htis worry you because I encourage lots of people to try it out it is very fun for girls and guys of all ages and you never know where this sport could take you (collage scholarship, world cup, famous athleete)

soccer can be very dangerous. It definatly isn't as dangerous as rugbee but you can breack a bone, tear a ligament doing it. My sisters friend's shin bone totally popped out of her shin during a soccer game. Although there are cautions soccer is a very fun sport to play. I have played for 8 years and I still love it!

The worst injury i have ever seen in soccer was suffered by Liverpool FC player Djibril Cisse. Wot happened was he was sprinding down the right channel with the ball, closely persued by a defender, as he went to take his next touch the defenders momentum took him into Cisses leg, which was stuck because he had his toes pointed into the ground, the defenders shin drove into Cisses causing A EXCRUCIATINGLY PAINFUL BREAK.

If you think association football (soccer) is dangerous, then you shouldn't play any sport. It has it's moments of danger, but every sport does (except Chess).

a soccer ball isn't dangerous only if u don't get hit in the face

Soccer is more dangerous than certain sports, but not all other sports. Soccer is not more dangerous than American Football, Boxing, Kickboxing, or Wrestling.

no, too dangerous, my soccer team cant

people can break their bone

They are both the same sport, unless you referring to American Football and soccer, in which case then American Football is much more dangerous.

Both games are dangerous if saftey precautions are not taken.

Tennis is better than soccer because: it's less dangerous, you may trip people in soccer, you get dirty in soccer, you were dumb shoes in soccer, and soccer is just not that cool. I hope you enjoyed my answer.

I would say soccer is way more dangerous cause In soccer you can break bones and get bruises and get kicked in the face and get a concussion from it and somtimes the cleat cuts u open. And basketball it's not that hard ya maybe u will get kicked o go cry play soccer I know cause I played both soccer is way more dangerous. Basketball u might get elbowed. Same in soccer but there is a lot more violents that go on in soccer.

In my own idea I think that football is more dangerous then soccer that's because in football the idea is to try to get the ball to touchdown by pushing into people and making them fall, in soccer people have a ball that they have to get into the goal post, sometimes tripping or twisting something. But playing football is really more dangerous then soccer.... ............. Hope this helps you.................

no because im a cheer leader and soccer player

Soccer or to the rest of the world football

Rugby unoin is the more dangerous, due to being a full contact sport.

I really think that Rugby union is more dangerous sports ever than Soccer. In this game you just defence players and run away towards the goal post.

Totally. Cheerleading causes way More issues. Soccer causes only SOME ISSUES. However, Cheerleading, Flyers are thrown up in the air. CHEERLEADING IS WAY MORE DANGEROUS! i think that they are both very dangerous sports. no need to say one is more dangerous then the other. both have very big risks. and have seen many injuries from both cheerleading and soccer.

Of course it is!!!!! For sure! Any one who didn'tbelieve that is soo lost. From: Famous soccer player

Soccer goal posts are not supposed to be square, it's too dangerous for the goal keeper. They are supposed to be round.

They're very powerful. Players in Argentina and Brazil are very quick and strong. Also, the spectators are dangerous. Soccer is also called football in Brazil not soccer.

In both sports you can get seriously injured, most people think soccer is nothing but one of my friends got a concussion during a game playing keeper. I myself have broken my leg and my arm playing soccer. But football is much more dangerous, people have died playing football. In soccer people can die on the field but it's always because of a heart attack or something like that. So i would say football is more dangerous.

it depends, you could get tripped or kicked or pushed but its not that dangerous.

Football is the official name for soccer. Soccer comes from association football. Only in the USA and Canada do they say soccer. The global name for football is of course football. The global name for American football is gridiron. Football is a sport played using the feet and a ball, only football does this. Both sports have many injuries but the more serious ones happen in gridiron. if mean Canada and usa soccer is better football is dangerous but what about soccer all the leg injuries

no its pretty much the same as football, its just called a different name.

The origin of soccer comes from medieval England, where a whole city would participate and every man would try to kick the ball on the streets. This type of soccer was considered very dangerous and was banned. The modern type of soccer was implemented by the Cambridge University in 1848 from England.

Cheerleading and Soccer are both very difficult sports. They both require a lot of stamina and skill. Cheerleading is more extreme and dangerous than soccer. But, there is no true way to determine if a sport is "harder" than another
