Soccer injuries are mostly related to the immense strain of running around for 90 minutes. In soccer you only get to substitute players three times (one player at a time), which means that at least eight players will be on field for the full duration of the game. This is why lesions in soccer are mostly in leg ligaments etc.
This happens in all sports, it looks worse in soccer. Soccer is unique because the clock doesn't stop and you can't freely substitute. A football, basketball, or hockey player faking an injury can go to the bench and get "treatment" before coming back a minute later. In baseball, the game will stop while they make a big show of walking if off.
Soccer doesn't have timeouts or unlimited substitutions. A basketball player that fakes an injury can set on the bench for a minute and come back, and no one knows they are faking it. A soccer player has to go from writhing on the ground clutching their knee to running full speed in seconds.
A common "injury" that happened to me was knee-to-knee contact. There's pretty much only skin between your knee bone and the other player's knee, so the pain can be extremely sharp. However, it only lasts 15-30 seconds until it feels like it never happened. Similar short-term injuries occur around the exposed ankle bone.
The injury consisted of a tear to the hip flexor muscles. Hip flexors are responsible for bringing your knee towards your chest and to bend at the waist. There are many hip flexors positioned in the lower limbs and posterior chain of the body these include but are not limited to the iliacus and psoas major muscles, also known as your iliopsoas ...
