What is more dangerous football or 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.
