I believe that soccer players should respect safety standards because anyone who plays the sport could get hurt. For example, I get hurt at most of my soccer games and it’s usually a stupid accident. I realized that many other players on my team get hurt as well. A few times this season my brother got hurt while he was in. On a website I found in the past 14 years, 1.6 million soccer players got hurt around the world. This isn’t just pros getting hurt this is kids too. Probably half of these injuries lead to kids. One soccer game in 2006 a soccer player named Totti fractured his left leg when he played soccer.
I believe that soccer players should respect safety standards because kids see pros play rough and sometimes it’s an influence. In my division I don’t see players not take the game both fun and serious, you only see some kids take it 100% seriously. A few times I played against a town named Draked and one time a boy scored and he decided to show off and do a few backflips some of my team said that he was a show off. People look up to soccer players sometimes like an idol. This can be bad because kids can try to do a skill move that they do and could get hurt if they mess up. A website I looked at said that the game of soccer should be a balance of fun and competition.
I think soccer players should respect safety standards because we can have less soccer injuries if we be a bit more careful. For example, my friend fitzy said he believes we should wear cups in soccer. I agree because sometimes the ball hits the crotch. Another example I found on a website was as much as soccer is a popular sport, it leads to injuries as well. In California there was one year that 68 soccer players got injured playing the sport. 80% of these injuries led to fractures. I remember one time I was playing a game against Waltham and a very tall kid tripped over me and I fell then he stepped on my kneecap. I got a bruise and a bad cut that was bleeding. I got subbed out. Another example iis another website said be safe and protect yourself when playing soccer.
Remember to always follow the rules when you play the sport soccer. Keep in mind some of the facts that I told you about.
