Default 12 of the worst football injuries of all time.

Olesen suffered a severe dislocation of the left ankle in an October 2006 match, and was out for 6 months

Cisse fractured his right leg after being tackled by the Shandong Luneng defender during a friendly international soccer match in Saint Etienne , France in 2006. The accident happened during the 10th minute of the match, in which France got a 3-1 victory over China .

Luciano Almeida suffered an injury in a match between his team (Botafogo) and Flamengo in 2007. After this, he was out for 5 months.

Nilis, 33, suffered a double fracture of his knee when colliding with Ipswich Town goalkeeper Richard Wright , after just 4 minutes of a premier league game on September 9th, 2000. The Belgian international striker has been forced to retire from soccer because of that injury.

The Coventry defender David Busst suffered a compound fracture of the tibia and fibula in this collision with Manchester United defender Denis Irwin during a match at Old Trafford in April 1996. The leg break was so bad that the bone pierced the skin and Busst's blood had to be cleared from the pitch. He never played professionally again. United goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel , who witnessed the injury, required counseling afterwards.

On February 19th, 2006, while playing in the Italian Championship against Empoli F.C. , he suffered a leg injury fracturing his left fibula and severing the interconnecting ligaments with the malleolus. He was operated the same night by Prof. Mariani , a renowned Italian orthopedic surgeon.

The German midfielder Ewald Lienen suffered an injury in 1981, which proves that it's not just broken bones that can be horrific. A sliding tackle from a Werder Bremen defender slices open Lienen's thigh, to reveal the tissue and bone of the player's leg.

Henrik Larsson's broken leg in 1999 threatened to end his career. His miraculous 7 months recovery saw him heal in time to score crucial goals in Sweden 's qualifying campaign for the 2000 Eurocup. Since then, he had been a permanent fixture on the Swedish side until his retirement following the 2002 FIFA World Cup.

On February 23rd 2008, during a match with Birmingham City whilst playing for Arsenal, Eduardo suffered a broken left fibula and dislocated his left ankle. This was the result of an appalling mistimed tackle by Birmingham City defender Martin Taylor , who was immediately and quite rightly dismissed. Eduardo made a full recovery and in January 2009, he made a return to the Arsenal first team, scoring 2 goals in an FA cup replay against Cardiff

On Saturday, November 8th, 2008, Díaz de Cerio suffered a serious injury after a collision with SD Eibar goalkeeper Zigor, fracturing the tibia and the fibula of his right leg. After a successful surgery, the club medical's staff nonetheless stated that the recovery would be "...very slow...". He returned to action almost a year after his injury, playing 30 minutes in a 1–1 draw at C.D. Nacional, for the UEFA Europe League (November 5, 2009).

In a match between Cruz Azul and Tecos UAG on June 12th, 2007, the Mexican soccer player suffered a dramatic fracture while attempting to recover a ball for his team and twisted his ankle. After many months of recovery, he returned to the field in 2007 and has become an important starting eleven player on the team.


Kieron Dyer, one of the most injury jinxed of modern soccer players, suffered a broken right leg at Bristol Rovers on August 29th, 2007.

Could you take this thread down, please?

Everyone knows bad injuries only occur to Arsenal players.

These examples from other teams are obviously complete lies.

If the worst happens, get one of your mates to photograph it, and post it on here.

I don't think we're playing this week (usually play Thursdays), two are off skiing, two are playing in the vets league, but if ever I do (or any of the rest of the lads, come to think of it), I shall endeavour to post pics, because I'm a good lad like that.

Didn't some Argentinian keeper once rip his finger off whilst tipping a shot over the bar, due to one of the hooks holding the nets up ripping through his glove and catching his wedding ring? Or have I just made that up.
