World Football: The Crazy World Of Football Injuries

Ivan SoldoCorrespondent IISeptember 22, 2010

At the end of match between Atletico Madrid vs Barcelona, Czech Republic player, Ujfalusi did a seriously hard tackle on Lionel Messi.

Little Argentinian star was really lucky because injury wasn't so serious and he will be out for 2 weeks.

Also, Ujfalusi got two-match ban for Messi tackle. Is that enough?

That crazy Ujfalusi's tackle reminded me of terrible injury that Eduardo Da Silva had while he played for Arsenal. Eduardo was doing good in Arsenal and he was the key player of Croatian national team and thanks to his goals Croatia qualified for EURO 2008 in Austria and Switzerland.


On 23 February 2008, in the third minute of Birmingham's home match against Arsenal, Taylor committed a foul on Eduardo as a result of which Eduardo suffered a compound fracture to his left fibula and an open dislocation of his left ankle. The injury was so disturbing that Sky Sports, who were broadcasting the game live, decided not to show replays of the incident. Taylor got only three-match ban.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger called for a life ban for Taylor but retracted his remarks later that day, admitting they had been excessive and made in the heat of the moment.


Also few days ago I saw this crazy tackle somewhere in South America and I was terrified with the injury I saw. It was really unbelievable to watch his broken leg.


Why am I writing about all this? Because I want to hear everyone's opinions about this tackles and of course how would you punish those "butchers"?


I think we should seriously punish those crazy tackles because today football looks more like a battlefield full of nasty tackles and broken legs.


I know that injuries happen but I want to see real football, not injured players laying on the field like they were in the war.
