The 11 minute number is accurate. That number was reported about five years ago in Sports Illustrated and again about a month ago in The Wall Street Journal. There is a 40 second play clock, not 25, so that might make it seem more believable to you.

interesting, never knew that. Soccer and football are much to different to compare. running around is no where near as strenuous as battling in the trenches. also, football is not as much about stamina as it is about durability, as you must be able to get up from hits that most soccer players would be crying over. how much time is actually "played" in a soccer game? Im assuming 90 min (or however long a game is). does stoppage time include ever second that the ball is not in play or only when there are injuries.

I've read that a soccer player will run anywhere from 6.5 to 7.5 miles in a match.

We're talking in the context of playing in extreme heat.

Depending on position, yes. Midfielders probably run the longest.

You cannot compare football to soccer. Football is all about short bursts, where soccer is constant. That and football players have several pounds of pads, depending on what pads players forgo.

Play rugby our balls are bigger than yours.
No seriously, I rather be in shape like Drogba or Thierry Henry than an NFL lineman. Going back to your debate you should remember that if the games in 94 started at mid day was because in Europe it was prime time for TV. If we get the world cup in the USA in the near future it will be the same. Games at 11/12 and 14/15pm to accomodate the European Tv viewers. It should not matter because stadiums like Reliant and Cowboy stadiums will be closed with air conditioning.

Exactly. The schedules can be set up so the mid-day matches in the most extreme of heat are played in stadiums with roofs or in places like Seattle, where it is cooler.

Go drive your monster truck over your house and leave the civilized people to proper discourse.

Oh, and learn how to tag.

Peter Crouch, surprisingly, covers around 10-12 miles per match. Benitez had some pro zone stats on him to shush his critics.

There are players who cover more than Crouch. Fabregas, Gattuso, ect.

Are you sure it was miles? I've seen 10-12 kilometers a match, but never miles.

10-12 miles is impossible imo.
At some matches on television they show the distance covered by a player when he is substituted, and the most I ever saw was 13 km.

If we're straying into tangential conversations, folks, let's be sure to keep it civil.

Sorry, How do you tag a video? I don't understand the monster truck reference. Either way, when is the host country selected. If the US does not win the bid for 2018, is 2022 likely to be held here? I hope because i would love to see a real soccer game in person. Let's go USA(in the olympics and in the bid)

I think you meant kilometers, not miles. 10km is 6m, so that makes sense. I know that at the last MLS Cup Kyle Beckerman covered over 9 miles, but he's a center mid.

I can understand that, most Europeans would not be able to name a single baseball or NFL-player either.

About the weather, i remember the world cup final 94 being a low paced big bore probably because of the extreme hot weather. It's a reason the European football season is fall/spring.
Maybe if the USA gets the world cup again the final should go to an indoor arena with aircondition? Or maybe the games should go later in the evening local time? I know it's a problem for European Tv but probably better for other continents. I remember the world cup in Mexico 1986 many of the games played late nights in Europe.
