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.
yes its on you tube and it was like Asian football check it out
No way, Jose! More people have died in soccer than you have fingers! And besides, in soccer, you have two tiny shin guards. In football, you are almost fully padded, AND have headgear!
Many more then 197 people died in uk
626 people since 1920!
no one... at least not yet
only a few football players have died while playing football most noticeably Antionio Puerta, although he did not die during the actual game - later in hospital. the cause is usually a heart-attack...to answer your question they dont die from tackles or anything, haha
Some one died in football (soccer)
...too many. :(
American Football-Yes, in 1971 a Lions wide receiver had a heart attack while running a route and died. Soccer-a Sudi Arabian soccer player dies on field. People think he broke his neck...=/
because one of the founders sons died playing football
Poe may have played soccer (aka football) or rugby, but American football was not even invented until after Poe died.
Yes. There has been players that have had heart attacks in a match.
yes people have
Well, it started off when a ship crashed into the ice and a person died and they chopped his head off and kicked it. that's soccer.
well not a lot of people because people play football all the time
I believe only one died from a football related injury. There were many to die due to other problems but during game play.
In the NFL, only 4.
lots of players have died on the pitch while playing. Marc-Vivien Foe, Miki Fehr,
One that I know. My brother died playing it.
If you're referring to the people getting crushed in a football stadium- 96 people died.
Chuck Hughes of the Detroit Lions in 1971 died playing the Chicago Bears. He had a heart attack.
world war one effected a lot of people and when the men where sent to fight they thought it would be fun playing football everyday but infact that was not true. in world war one over 2.000.000 people died.
