Old footballers were rock hard.

Bert Trautmann in the 1956 FA Cup Final for example.
Trautmann, diving at an incoming ball, was knocked out in a collision with Birmingham's Peter Murphy in which he was hit in the neck by Murphy's right knee. Trautmann, dazed and unsteady on his feet, carried on for the rest of the match. After the match, as the pain did not recede, the following day he went to St George's Hospital, where he was told he merely had a crick in his neck which would go away. Three days later, he got a second opinion from a doctor at Manchester Royal Infirmary. An X-ray revealed he had dislocated five vertebrae, the second of which was cracked in two.

Old guys from any sport were bad-ass. Bobby Baun broke his leg in hockey, so he taped it up and went back on the ice to score the overtime goal.

So sad he died, but the news is that he'll carry on playing.

I'm not the best person to talk to about football , but you need to be partly insane to be a goalkeeper, most of the time its pretty much random guess on what to do, and your the last line of defense between winning and loosing. That **** is crazy.
